Anyone w/a winning bid on Priceline for June downtown Van? 4

Hi,

I haven't had any luck so far.

If you have been succesful could you tell me what you bid and what star level you included. Also which hotel was given.

I am looking at downtown 4 star level.

Thanks so much!

Have you looked on Biddingfortravel.com or betterbidding.com? They list the winning bids.

I'm a big priceline fan but also recently have been checking out hotwire.com . I noticed that you can get a hotwire price for a 5 star downtown vancouver (would be sutton place, pan pacific or hotel vancouver?) for I think $129.00. That was for mid may but could be the same for June.

I just won a bid on a 4 star for $150 on Granville Island in August. Didn't take it as my dates are not firm yet.

Hi,

Yes I have been on bft a lot but nothing this year has shown up for June. I did look at last years going rates for same time period and I'm wondering if I am just a bit too early. Fortunately, I have some time to play around with the bids. I have a back up at the Delta Van Suites but would prefer to get a better rate.

I will look at betterbidding as I haven't checked them out yet. Thanks for the suggestion!

I don't know how they do their star ratings but 5 star downtown should be restricted to Sutton Place only. There are no 4 stars on Granville Island. Just the GI Hotel, a solid 3 stars.

They (hotwire, priceline) set their own star ratings; there are no industry standard ones. In Canada, advertised star ratings are usually from the "Canada Select" program, but a property has to enroll in that program - there are registration and inspection fees.
