First, I have started all my searches using the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links (thanks, BB!) I am looking for a 3.5* or higher (incl. Resorts) property in the Waikiki Beach area. I am there for a wedding, so don't want to get too far away from where everyone else is staying. I've signed up for email alerts from Priceline, and I've received several that say someone has successfully won 4.5* properties for $100 or less (no dates are given, of course). I started with a $100 bid for a 4*, then used free rebids of $105, $110 and $115. None were accepted. I tried splitting my bid into two stays (3/13-3/16 and 3/16-3/18), but had no luck bidding $100, $105 or $110 for either period of time. It looks like the Ramada Plaza (Waikiki Marina) is available on Hotwire for $105. I'm wondering if this would be a good substitute, or too far away? I'm mainly posting to share my efforts so far, but would welcome any advice anyone else has. Thanks!
