  1. Went the Express Route on this one. Direct booking rate was $92.52 King, $97.29 2 Queen (after a 4% sale). Express Deal was $76 King, $79 2 Queen. 2 nights, $43.98 taxes/fees. Took advantage of the customized $15 off/$100+ coupon they sent the day after I request rate information. Those prices are before the coupon. (Note: This hotel is not listed on the board) Top Amenities Free Internet in Room Indoor Pool Fitness Center Business Center Non-smoking Rooms Free Parking Cable/Satellite Tv Hair Dryer Complimentary Continental Breakfa
  2. PRICELINE EXPRESS. SPRING14 discount brought it down to $46.55 + $11.24 taxes/fees totalling $57.79/night inclusive for each of 3 nights. Direct booking price of $74.10/night (down from past couple of weeks) over same period + $10.93/taxes totalling $85.03/night. Fridge & microwave in room, above average hot breakfast for this level hotel. Bedding average at best at this level. 80 channels, no digital/HD. Floors paper thin (easily hear walking above, etc.). PRICELINE link used.
  3. Certainly. Free Breakfast, free internet, indoor or outdoor pool, free parking, pets allowed, business center, fitness center. Guest rating: 8.0, Guest favorite.
  4. Pleasant surprise with this Priceline Express hotel in the Tucson, AZ Airport zone. Used the 'SPRING14' 5% discount ($43.70/night). $43.70 + $10.72 taxes/fees = $54.42 inclusive/night. Hotel not previously shown in hotel lists for this zone. Built in 2009. 50 of 55 reviews on TripAdvisor rate either Excellent (33) or Very Good (17). Comparable ratings on 2 other major booking sites with 100+ reviews each (4.6/5). Direct booking rate for comparison: $89 + $12.69 = $101.69/night. PRICELINE link used.
  5. Went through several bids in 2.5* ($39, 41, 43, 45, 47, 49, finally $50) and ended up with the lowest graded 3* in the zone. Older hotel, shows its wear, comfortable beds at least. $50 + $12.30 taxes/fees = $62.30/night inclusive. PRICELINE link used.
  6. Second attempt ($42 (PL offered $49 booking at this point), then $44 was accepted). $44 + $13.68 taxes/fees = $57.68. Used La Paloma for rebid. Above average breakfast for a 2.5* property, clean feel/look, bed clean but average in quality at best, 60+ cable channels but no HD, pool/whirlpool outside (no privacy fence), single treadmill in their Fitness Center, you can hear even yourself walk across the room (easy to hear tenant above walk in their room; however, no 'noisy' tenants to either side to hear through the wall, etc. All in all, pretty average for a 2.5*. Needed to be close to
  7. Rebooked hotel. $46, second attempt ($44, $46) + $13.94 = $59.94. for Wed 3/19 - Thur 3/20. Can create new thread, if desired. Thanks for all the time and effort invested in the board.
  8. Fourth attempt ($40, $44, $46, $48). $48 + 14.24 taxes/fees = $62.24. Added higher value zones of Oro Valley, La Paloma and East for the rebid opportunities. There was a PRICELINE EXPRESS deal through Priceline, 2 1/2 stars, airport zone for $54+ and a Hotwire offer for $57+ same rating/zone, quite possibly the same property. Expected to receive either this property or the Best Western Airport. Direct booking through Country Inn & Suites website $99+. Used Priceline link for booking.
  9. Rebooked the room with a new set of bids (using the high-end zone indicated above for rebids) for the following night, Monday 3/17-Tuesday 3/18. Again, 4th bid accepted ($39, 45, 48, $49) apparently indicating this was the lowest acceptable bid. Same property. Fairly average Holiday Inn property. Room, bed and linens clean. Good value. Used Priceline link.
  10. Fourth attempt ($35, $39, $42 failed). Added high(er) end zones as I went - La Paloma, Oro Valley & Central. $49 + $14.36 taxes/fees = $63.36. Best price through Priceline to book direct today was $99 (same day travel). Addtionally, Hotwire shows $61+ for a 3 star in Airport zone (concluding it's very likely the same (Holiday Inn) as this is the lowest rated 3* hotel in the airport zone. Wow, fantastic advancements to your site! Very impressive. Thank you for providing such a valuable service to your users :D. Used your PRICELINE link to book the room.
  11. Address: 8080 N. State Road 9, Howe IN 46746. Multiple unsuccessful bids. $39, 45, 49, 55, 59. 4 locations in zone and this is the ONLY 2.5* allowing for 7 rebids with the variations. NEW hotel to your list. (Note: Winning bid from 3/31/12 off another BB was $52 for this property. Looks very nice here upon arrival. Indoor Pool, very clean, rooms like new. 37" LG flat screen w/only analog service. 3 HBOs, 30 total channels, in-room channel placard accurate and up-to-date - unusual lol. Additional information - Here are the direct booking rates for 3 highest rated hotels here right off th
  12. UPDATE upon arrival at Radisson Celebration - Walt Disney Maingate (Wed., February 23, 2011): Received bid at $39 - $51.40 w/Priceline fees + add'l $11 + 13% tax resort fee for around $64 inclusive. Direct book $79 + tax + resort fee on this date that I stayed (Wed 2/23/11). Room closer to a 2* as expected. Sleep number beds typically aren't offered with Priceline bookings; however, I was fortunate to receive the requested upgrade. Tub was full of water and table lamp had a short (ugh); however, problem was fixed quickly. Too tired to mess with an attempt to change rooms. Yes, knew the tu

  14. First bid. Based upon last winning bid posted earlier today by someone at $44. Suggest anyone shooting for it may be able to get it for a couple bucks less. Expecting a $12 or so 'Resort' fee. Hopefully, internet is included. Actually checked - $12.50 resort fee now and internet is included. Crossing fingers on any upcharges for double beds :). Direct booking rate was $79/night for the same room meaning it's likely more like a 2.5. Total - $51.40 - $39 +12.40 fees PRICELINE link used.
  15. This is the 3* you're most likely to end up with in this zone. 4th bid - $30, 32, 34, 36. Added Yulee and Jacksonville West for the free rebids. You can safely add Jax Beach/Mayo Clinic as you'll not get a room at the beach nearly as cheap. (NOTE - you can get the 2.5* Best Western right down the street for $29 or so on average - it's been known to go as low as $25. All Jax zones are 2.5* at a minimum giving you the one Beach zone and possibly Downtown as your rebids. The Radisson is a little nicer and for less than $10/night more seems worth the value.) $36 a night + $17.22 tax/fees = $
