  1. I've been bidding 4* in Paris for the last 4 days. I went to $130 for Batignolles-Monmartre area and $98 for St. Germain with no luck (except counter bid of $15). Today my first bid was $100 and I was accepted. The rack rate for the Marriott is EUR179 per night (Approx. $250). Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: US$100.00 Subtotal: US$300.00 Taxes & Fees: US$36.36 Total Charges: US$336.36 Used the PRICELINE link.
  2. Just wanted to post this as useful information. I spoke to someone tonight who got the above deal. I had tried bidding to $57 for these dates with no luck and ended up at the Doubletree.
  3. Hi Simon. I know this time of year is about the cheapest that NYC gets (don't go in November), so I knew I'd get a bargain of some sort, just annoyed that I didn't bid lower to start with. Noticed that someone just got it for$80 on 2 of the nights I'm there. (I know, don't sweat the small stuff! In New York it seems to be best to wait until the week before the stay to bid. In other towns, it can be worth bidding a few weeks before. I'm in Asheville at the moment and would have got a better deal if I'd done that. Of course it's easier to bid at the last minute in somewhere like New York or Asheville where there are plenty of free rebids but it's much more nerve-wracking when you only have 1 bid a day! Oh the joy of PRICELINE!!
  4. This was my first bid, so maybe they will do cheaper. Rack rate for those nights is $216. Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $90.00 Subtotal: $360.00 Taxes & Fees: $86.44 Total Charges*: $446.44 Used the PRICELINE link.
  5. I booked this on the 13th February and rack rate at the time was $105. Seems to work best if you bid this hotel more than a week in advance. I couldn't get it for a stay last night, which I also tried to book on the 13th. Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $35.00 Subtotal: $35.00 Taxes & Fees: $11.99 Total Charges*: $46.99 Used the PRICELINE link.
  6. The Crowne Plaza is fully booked on Saturday. I bid to $57 for 3.5* hoping for the Renaissance with no luck. Bid 3* up to $48 without success then increased to $50 and got the Doubletree (rack rate is $109). I think we're in a Priceline room - ground floor in the old part. It's seen better days and not up to the usual Doubletree standards. Internet access is non-existent and tonight there was no hot water! Oh well, only 4 nights to go. Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $50.00 Subtotal: $250.00 Taxes & Fees: $45.90 Total Charges: $295.90 Used the PRICELINE link
  7. This hotel was a very pleasant surprise. It's new and is very well equiped with a fridge, microwave & safe in the large rooms. Free decent breakfast, gym, pool and laundry. Far better than many 3 or 3.5* hotels we stay in.
  8. Tried 3* at $38 and had counterbid of $53. Added 2.5*, bid $41 and accepted. Please could you add this hotel to the list. Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $41.00 Subtotal: $41.00 Taxes & Fees: $12.87 Total Charges*: $53.87 used the PRICELINE link
  9. Over the last week I've bid to $70 for 3.5* and $61 for 3* with no success. Today I started at $65 for 3.5* and had a counter-bid at $85. Bid $68 & $70 and was accepted at $72. Rack rate today is $159. Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $72.00 Subtotal: $72.00 Taxes & Fees: $17.42 Total Charges*: $89.42 Used the PRICELINE link
  10. Bid rejected at $50. Also bid to $60 at 3* and rejected. Used the PRICELINE link
  11. Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $114.00 Subtotal: $114.00 Taxes & Fees: $31.31 Total Charges*: $145.31 Booked via your PRICELINE link
  12. Hi there, Rack rate dropped today from $164 to $139. I bid $50, then added Jersey City (bit of a risk but there's no reported 2.5* and if there was, very unlikely to get it for $55 this time of year!) and was accepted. Used your PRICELINE link. Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $55.00 Subtotal: $55.00 Taxes & Fees: $16.04 Total Charges*: $71.04
  13. Hi Jengiles The probable reason is that the current rack rate for those dates is $312. If you break it down, the rates are $369 on the 16th, $284 on the 17th and $269 on the 18th, so it's the 16th that's going to cause problems. It's worth checking out rack rates in some of the other hotels in other areas to see if they are a little lower. After checking out Tripadvisor reviews, the 2.5* hotels in the following areas all seem to have pretty good ratings: ESB, MSG, Chelseas and Downtown. I didn't check further uptown zones. Also, it can sometimes be better to bid closer to the travel dates as the hotels often release rooms closer to the day. If you can book a cancelable backup, try that option. Look at what the prices are like on Hotwire to get an idea of availability. I was looking over labour day weekend and it was very clear from HOTWIRE that I didn't stand a chance on the Saturday!. Good luck and remember there is always Jersey City. I often stay at the 4* Hyatt which is right by the Path station and goes straight into WTC. Oh and don't foget to use this sites PRICELINE or HOTWIRE links! Good luck
  14. This is a newly opened hotel and seems to have good reviews on Tripadvisor. Please could you also add it to the hotel list. Rates seem quite high again for this night in NYC, so I bid $100 for 2.5* in ESB, MSG, Chelsea and then Downtown where I was accepted by Holiday Inn Express. Rack rate for that night is $279. Used the PRICELINE link.
  15. Had started bidding at $100 and this was my final bid at 4* level having used all the zones. The rack rate is $429 so a good deal considering it's Labour day weekend. Booked via your PRICELINE link.
