Thanks much for your help!  And if the answers above reflect any kind of unrealistic expectations, any guidance you provide is much appreciated.  Bottom line is that I have all day Saturday and Sunday next weekend to explore Wine Country, and I just want to stay in a place that isn't broken down or too out of the way.  Not necessarily looking for a fantastic resort with all the amenities.  Thanks again!

Please fully answer #13.  As to guidance for your limit, that is clearly addressed on the Bidding Assistance Form.

I would recommend that you start at $134 for a 3.5* in Santa Rosa and raise $3 per free re-bid.

Please remember to start your bid through the BiddingForTravel.com link to Priceline.

Bid as follows (all 3.5 stars):
Santa Rosa, $134
Napa Downtown North $137
Napa Downtown South $140
Upper Napa Valley $143

(placed that last bid before realizing that it was past my limit. oh well. it worked out ok. 8-)

The $143 was accepted by The Flamingo Resort & Spa in Santa Rosa.

Thanks again for your help, and yes I used the BFT link!

PS. This webpage is not letting me edit the Subject line. I'll assume someone else will do that unless I hear otherwise. Thx!
