No I didn't get double fucked I finally broke down and used Price Line. For years now since 1998 I've been fighting it and fighting and I finally had to break down and use it. Unexpectedly Boobers said he'd like to spend an extra day in Chicago and of course everything was either booked or way out of my price range being it so close to the departure date. So I bit the bullet put in my first bit $100 four star in downtown, DENIED! Hmmm I thought guess this thing isn't all what it's cracked up to be. Tossed a few more dollars into the kitty and BAM! Offer excepted and to my surprise it was a hotel that I was familiar with and in a good part of downtown. Rick pointed out to me that for an extra $5 one can get insurance on the hotel just in case something happens and one isn't able to make the trip. Why have I refused to use this site before? I think that I will need to start using Price Line more often for my Chicago trips. Just checked the price regular rooms are going for on the check in date and I am about to dance around with joy on the savings :p So if you haven't used Price Line before really there isn't anything to worry about. It's fast, simple and potentially a huge money saver! Hmmm I can just imagine how many Italian beef sandwich's I could buy with the saving :+

This would be an audience participation. I don't want to look like a total pig. Just remember to breath :)

I have used Priceline for some time now. There are various idiosyncrasies to learn about it, and you sometimes get the hotel's worst room, but usually it works well.

In Montreal, the prized (for its location) Gouverneur Hotel is $169 a night plus tax. I am staying in a nicer hotel further away for $95 on Priceline. In slower weeks you can get even better prices here.

 

New York is still the hard one to get as the low dollar atracts so many foreigners and the hotels don't need Priceline so much.

Priceline.com

 

Priceline.com is a wonderful resource, and most escorts I know who travel use it exclusively. You can always get excellent deals for San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and other large cities. New York is an exception. BUT, in the last few months, several people have posted on biddingfortravel.com and betterbidding.com (sources you should definitely look at) that they have gotten the Hilton and Sheraton in Manhattan for about $155. This is a tremendous bargain. I don't know what role dates play nor how many rooms they will let at this price, but it is certainly worth trying. Start at perhaps $145, and then on rebids go up by $5 and see what happens. I shall certainly do it next time I go to NYC.

RE: Priceline.com

 

Price line is great and I use it all the time when I am visiting a city in which I don't want to stay at a specific hotel. If one is not familiar with how to use the site http://www.biddingfortravel.com provides great instructions on how to work the odds. In the past if you got turned down on your initial offer you had to wait 24 hours to bid again. If that is still true the way to get around it is to rebid adding another area in the city which has only hotels of a lesser category than the one you are seeking. You can continue doing this indefinitely adding one new area each time you bid. The entire process becomes a game.

Now when I need airfare or a rental car I have found that I can do better elsewhere. The problem with airfare is that if you want to fly from L.A. to New York you just might get routed through Bejing. For airfare I really like using http://www.kayak.com. If I use price line for a car rental I ALWAYS begin by checking the rates of the major companies first and then place a bid for less. I frequently find that the rate I can get from one of the companies is more competitive.
