  2. Used the PRICELINE link from site, selected 4*, Portland (Downtown) only, and started with $60. Priceline came back and had me rebid with no new zones or stars at $72. Did that and got the Vintage Plaza!
  3. Trying to get a cheapish room for GABF in Denver near the Colorado Convention Center. Started bidding at $65, added areas and increased bids by $10 increments up to $85, then by $5 increments to $100. Cheapest rates for the Monaco on their site are $299. Cheapest 4 star in that area on Hotwire is $114.
  4. Amenities: Resort, Fitness, Pool, Restaurant, Business Center, Internet, Golf Nearby, Tennis Nearby, Spa 4.5/5 rating on TripAdvisor Hotwire rating says "We are still gathering reviews for this property." Linked to HOTWIRE through site. $88, $104 with taxes. 5/7/10-5/8/10
  5. I used the PRICELINE link on this site to start my bidding. Saw that someone had got a 4* downtown for under $50 a few months ago. Started bidding at $45, was rejected, added Beaverton - Hillsboro and bid $50, rejected, added Clackamas and bid $55 and was rejected again. I stopped there as I did not want to spend more than that. Tried $45/night for 3.5* Downtown Portland - unsuccessful. I decided I wanted to try to get into the Courtyard City Center as many people have won that for under $50, and it gets excellent reviews on Tripadvisor (currently 9th best reviewed hotel in Portland). Added 3* and bid $45 per night for Downtown Portland only. I was immediately accepted. It gave the option of extending at the same rate. Best price on the Marriott Site - $99/night plus taxes and $20 visa gift card. Thanks to the site and other posters - this information is critical to getting a great deal! Room Cost (avg. per room, per night): $45.00 (USD) Number of Rooms: 1 Number of Nights: 2 Room Subtotal: $90.00 (USD) Taxes and Fees: $19.60 (USD) Total Room Cost: $109.60 (USD) Dates: 8/14/09-8/16/09
