We will be there in June, 2013, and wanted to stay near Pike Place Market. Since we need 3 rooms, I wanted to stay under $200 per room. It just wasn't working. I considered using the smartphone apps "Hotel Tonight" and "Tonight", which offer great same-day rates. They'd be great if you only need one room, so decided not to risk it for our group. Decided to try Priceline. I only bid on 4-star hotels, and on my third try (Day 3) I was able to get the Westin (perfect location) for $140 per night; taxes and fees brought it to $164 per night per room. I was thrilled with that.
