Holiday Inn Express Pittsburgh-Bridgeville
3053 Washington Pike, Bridgeville, PA 15017
Hotels in the I-79 corridor from Greentree to Washington ridiculously unwilling to provide a meaningful discount for the opacity of Priceline NYOP. List rate for this hotel on this night has been a steady $126/night for 2 weeks. I've been bidding in the Washington-Canonsburg zone (no free rebids), the Pitts-Greentree zone and the Pitts-South zone for the past 2 weeks, with bids approaching 70% of retail, with no luck. Counteroffers were predictable and invariant.
This evening, I started with a bid of $99 for Canonsburg 3*, which was refused with a counteroffer of +$27. No free rebids, express deal available at $116. Both 3* hotels in that zone had $149 list rates. So neither was willing to accept even a 33% discount in exchange for opacity!
My bids for 2.5* in the Pitts-South zone were:
$90: refused/counteroffer of +$24
$99: refused/counteroffer of +$15
$101: accepted. A measly 20% off rack rate.
The same hotel via Express Deal was $104/night, plus a whopping $83.56 fees/taxes for a total of $499.56.
Clearly the Express Deals over-charge on fee and taxes--the $12 additional room cost carried a 100% tax/fee rate!
