Newbie

Newbie (1/14)

  1. Started from $60... spent about 2 weeks bidding in increments of $3-5, and finally won at $101 plus fees. Priceline Bid $485 USD including taxes and fees. Priceline Listing $608 USD including taxes and fees. Savings $123 or 20%
  2. Sorry, this winning bid would be for 7/14/12 - 7/15/12
  3. I believe the Empress Inn is different than Fairmont Empress right on the Harbour. There are many restaurants near the downtown area for breakfast within walking distance.
  4. Perhaps the best 4* hotel is Delta. Empress would be out of your price range. Most hotels in Victoria is not that great. I just spent a weekend there (I live in Vancouver), try to not go 3* if you can afford it.
  5. Started 4* somewhere @ $70 Downgraded to 3* @ $70 Average price for 3*/4* listed as $160/$180 Failed 4* @ $95 Foolishly re-bidded with 3* @ $97 - won Listed price is $117 After taxes/fees = saved $10-$20... Hotel was very bad. It's an apartment converted hotel. Added extra $15 to upgrade from standard room to studio suite with King bed, due to strangely opened balcony door prior to arrival and uncleaned table top... Complained and got continential breakfast vouchers. Parking cost $15.
  6. Starting @ $40 Switched around check out dates from 8/7 and 8/8 to get more bids Random increments of $3-5 each time No counter offers return Won @ $76 Hotel listed price @ $169/189 Saved 55-58% Didn't care about location - rented a car so free parking is almost a must.
  7. Listed winning hotel price for my date is $188. Starting bidding 3.5* and 4* Ottawa @ $65 Avoided 3* because Ottawa have very bad hotels (old apartments converted into "hotels") 4* Ottawa @$80 4* Ottawa @$85 - counter offer $103 4* Ottawa/Hull @$87 4* Ottawa @ $89 won
  8. I started bidding on January 9th, swapping back and forth between 1 night and 2 nights. 72 74 79 83 88 <- counter 119 94 98 <- counter 119 107 Offer Price: avg. per room, per night $107.00 Rooms: 1 Nights: 2 + Add nights for the same rate! Room Subtotal: $214.00 Taxes & Fees: $43.00 Total Charged to Card: $257.00 My winning bid was $107, would test $103 but time is running out. Not a good deal as retail listing price is $129, and at the moment they have $149 - $50 gift certificate at Bellevue Square. So I am actually losing about $15 bucks at the end. Additionally, I was aiming for Westin as it's closer to the mall. Oh well, can't win them all.
  9. 1st bid - South Strip - $85 rejected 2nd bid - South Strip + North Strip - $95 accepted Not too bad for a 5 star hotel during Christmas. I was expecting to pay much more.
  10. A series of attempts. $105 Waikiki Beach 8/28-9/1 $108 Waikiki Beach and Marina 8/28-9/1 $110 Waikiki Beach 8/28-9/1, counter offer $138 $112 Waikiki Beach and Marina 8/28-9/1 $112 Waikiki Beach and Marina 8/29-9/1 $118 Waikiki Beach 8/29-9/1 $118 Waikiki Beach and Marina 8/29-9/1 $123 Waikiki Beach 8/29-9/1, CO $138 $128 Waikiki Beach and Marina 8/29-9/1 = success! Most expensive bid I had with Priceline, but it's a beach resort afterall... Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort
  11. $75 rejected, counter offer $88 $81 accepted, Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort & Spa
  12. Pricelined 2 rooms for $44 each. Don't have anything nice to say about Holiday Inn PDX, but that's the trade off for using PRICELINE! Better luck next time.
  13. Originally wanted Culvin City or Westwood, but my lowball prices of $42/$44/$45/$48 didn't work out. Came close at $45, but PL wanted re-bid $60. Last choice was to include LAX, reviews for this hotel is good though. At least it's not valet parking... :)
  14. Wanted to try something different and save money on the parking. Horrible reviews and sketchy neighbourhood, but we'll see.
  15. We stayed there last month for 2 nights as it was close to Staple Center. Turns out they charge $30+ each night for valet... but it was a nice walk back. about 20 mins distance.
