I started bidding at $55 and used my free rebids at $5 increments. In previous years, I got rooms in this hotel for less, but after looking at the rates on the Hyatt website, I can't complain. I used the Better Bidding PRICELINE link.
I started bidding for a 3* at $45 over the past few days and raised my bid at $5 increments. At $65, I received an offer for a rebid if I added $15 to my bid. Instead, I added another zone and raised my bid to $70 and won this 3.5* hotel. I used the PRICELINE link.
I started bidding at $45 on both ORD zones and went up in $5 increments and won it at $55. This is the same price I got for the same hotel last January. I'm happy winning it again, I like the hotel's location and odd style. I used the Better Bidding PRICELINE link, of course.
Started bidding $70 for 4* and 3*. I increased my bids by $5 increments up to $95. Then I bid $70 for 3* and won the Millennium Maxwell House. I probably could have done much better, but my winning bid is still $49 less than the rate on the hotel's website. I used the PRICELINE link.
4* (West Hong Kong Island) Cosmopolitan Hotel $90 ... 11/24/11-11/28/11 Unfortunately my winning bid represents a 40 cent per night savings over the Cosmopolitan's website's price after a discount for four nights. I saved a total of $1.60 and the Cosmopolitan Hotel's online rate isn't prepaid. Shame on me for not researching the rates more recently - when I checked the Cosmopolitan's website a week ago, I thought the rate was $145/night. I used the PRICELINE link on BetterBidding.
