I tried doing Name Your own Price for 2.5* up to $85 and did not get a win. I realized there was a PRICELINE EXPRESS deal for $80 in Seattle Center and received the Quality Inn & Suites. The amenities listed prior to accepting were Fitness Center / Free Internet / Free Breakfast. I did use the Better Bidding [url=http://www.betterbidding.com/clicks/click.php?afsrc=1&id=40]PRICELINE[/url] link. Thanks!
Got this 4* hotel on the first try for $70! I thought that was a lowball offer, wish I would have started lower but am very pleased! Cheapest rate on Kayak was $160. Very much appreciated help from this site as usual!
I had tried bidding in the 130s in SoMA, Financial District, and Fisherman's Wharf and finally got a bite at 136 in US-E. The win isn't spectacular but I am happy with the savings compared to traditional booking considering the short notice. I did use the BetterBidding PRICELINE links. This website is an awesome resource!
