biddingfortravel.com recently made some changes. Re: Priceline got ticked off about "maniplating" bids.
I have used Priceline for several years and have NEVER been disappointed in my room/hotel. I always bid 3-4 stars and have never paid more than $65. In my experience, the larger the city (more rooms) the better the deals. And a little flexibility can be very rewarding. Start your bidding early and stick to your price. Try every 72 hours until you get it. I like luxury hotels and resorts, but I also like $$. My latest priceline deals...Radisson Plaza Hotel-Orlando-$35. And, Hyatt Regency -Woodfield Mall-Schaumburg...$24. It would probobly cost me more than that to park my car in most cities!!
