  • Anyone try 2 or 2 1/2 stars at Priceline lately?

    We just came back from a great trip, but I need to go back for a trade show in 2 weeks, so I realy dont want to spring for a lot of $$. I know the 31/2 star hotels look great, but I dont wantto pay extra $$ for parking and resort fees. I see that the Towneplace Suites and the Hojo are listed as 2 or 2 1/2 stars, and both of those are great!
    Just wondering what people have come up with lately, and what you should bid on the lower star hotels...
    Happy 4th!!

    $40 to $55/night for a 3 1/2 star hotel (Hyatt, Doubletree, Crown Plaza, Marriott and the Hilton) is not out of line, even if the Resort fee is added to it.

    I know we have never used Priceline for anything less than 3 1/2 stars with a starting "bid" of $40 and always end up with one of the above listed hotels in that price range.

    It just isn't worth the risk...

    Good luck!

      While I enjoy the 3.5 star hotels, I also felt like trying a lower-tiered hotel to avoid the various fees. I tried bidding for 3 stars in an effort to get the Holiday Inn Anaheim Resort. Based on the threads at BetterBidding and BiddingforTravel, it was highly probable that a winning bid for a 3 star hotel would be this one.

      Success! I won a two-night stay at the Holiday Inn Anaheim Resort (on Manchester) for $39/night. The best thing: no resort fees, free parking, and free internet. You only pay the final total that you see on your PL bid (which shows taxes). I know it's not a 2 or 2.5 stars like you asked, but it's a pretty nice hotel and the free parking and internet really helps keep the grand total pretty low. :thumbup:
