  1. So I was able to book a backup that expires 04/26 and I am hoping to book at the last minute to get a priceline deal. I have checked priceline express every single day (often multiple times a day) since January and the prices have been firm. Does anyone have thoughts on whether hotels with excess inventory will drop prices at the last minute? Obviously I realize that this is difficult to predict but if it seemed like prices will stay the same or go up then I will just book the $192, which is likely the Hyatt. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Last question - what is the difference in price you can get with savvy bidding versus PRICELINE EXPRESS? I am trying to figure out the difference and whether I should be bidding as I used to.
  2. I have checked multiple times every day since late January and the prices are staying firm for my dates. I've got a back up that expires soon. I'm thinking of booking a PRICELINE EXPRESS deal for $192. I'm hoping it's the Hyatt. Can you help me ID this? Dates 04/28 - 05/02 4 Star Hotel in Downtown New Orleans Area for $192/night Guaranteed Amenities: Business Center Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center Non Smoking
  3. Thank you. Sorry for asking questions that are probable obvious but can you help ID Priceline Express hotels? For example, I am looking at a rate of $141 a night on PRICELINE EXPRESS for for 3 Star Hotel in Downtown New Orleans Area with the following amenities Free Internet Fitness Center Restaurant Business Center Can you help me ID this? Thanks in advance
  4. I am going to New Orleans 04/28/16 - 05/02/16 for Jazz Fest and need 1 room (downtown, warehouse, or FQ). With the artists just announced, PRICELINE rates for these date are currently high. I am predicting that they will go down eventually as this has been my experience in the past. I am checking rates every day. To hedge my bet, I'd like to book a backup now that I cancel once I get a PL room. Can anyone recommend where to book a room as a backup that I can cancel with short notice? Thanks in advance,

  9. Thanks. That's what I guessed when I saw casino. I am not really into that hotel so I think I will try my luck on PRICELINE. I've got kids so ideally I'd like the Omni Rancho Las Palmas but I'd settle for Westin Mission Hills or anything else that is generally kid friendly. Agua Caliente is more like a tour bus full of old people ready to swing the one arm bandit type place.
