Started bidding at $65, and went up by adding $5 increments. Starting by adding all 4* areas (we didn't really have a preference): Bellevue, Redmond - Kirkland, Seattle Center Space Needle. We seem to end up with this hotel 50% the time we ever bid in the Seattle area, which is disappointing, but... Hotwire had 4* Pike Place @ 130/night, and Kayak showed 189/night. Should probably find better parking alternative this time around. Anyone know of any closeby? Used the PRICELINE link. Thanks to the Admins and all the fellow contributors.
