  1. Hi, I've used your bidding strategies before but never this far in advance (always on PRICELINE). I am trying to get La Concha from Nov 22 - Nov 25 for my birthday. The rate on their website is currently 199 a night, 179 with the AAA discount. I am not sure where to start with this one. Ideally, I'd want to get it for $125 a night. Also, I'd be open to the Intercontinental but I definitely want to stay in the main San Juan area. Can you advise please? Thanks, Jennifer
  2. Just tried this with no luck 4* Rittenhouse Business District - 85, denied added Museum District, 95, denied added Trevose/Bensalem, 106, denied added University area, 111 accepted. So, I got 4* Le Meridien Philadelphia for 111 a night, March 10-March 11. Not exactly what I wanted, but the price was right.
  3. Okay. I am willing to accept any 4 star hotel in the Rittenhouse Square - Business District
  4. Unfortunately was not able to get anything within my price range, so I didn't book a hotel. Thanks for all the help!
  5. Done! Posted in the RI thread, but wasn't able to get a hotel in my price range so didn't go. On to Phily!
  6. Unfortunately, I was not able to get a hotel within this range and didn't make a trip. Thanks for all your help!
  7. Hi, I am trying to get one night at the Palomar. I prefer it, but would take the Sofitel or Hyatt as well and need help with a bidding strategy. Here are the details: Stars: 4 Location: Downtown City: Philadelphia Dates: March 10th - 11th (one night) Budget: up to $120, but would prefer lower if possible Thanks!
  8. Okay, here we go: Goat Island - Newport & Newport Beach 3.5 star Middletown 3 star South Kingston 3 star So, would my strategy be to first bid what I want: Goat Island, 3.5 stars then increase bid and add Middletown (but leave stars alone) increase bid again and add S. Kingston (but leave stars alone) ?
  9. Hi Becky, By "they" I meant PRICELINE. When I looked a few days ago, the Newport Beach Hotel and Suites was only 3 stars, but today I see it is 3.5 stars. Weird. Thanks!
  10. Hi Becky, That hotel is coming up in the Middletown area when I look -- not Goat Island. They only show three hotels with 3.5 stars on Goat Island -- the others you mentioned...
  11. I think I get it -- is it just that I need to bid with combinations that have no results except for the one I really want?
  12. Can someone help me with a re-bidding strategy to get a 3.5 star hotel in downtown newport? I read about how to do it, but am not totally confident...
  13. Thanks for the advice Becky! I will keep it in mind and keep my fingers crossed!
  14. I really didn't want to spend more than $200, but it doesn't seem likely if I want to stay in downtown Newport.
