We first bid on a 3.5* hotel in Downtown Toledo at $64/night.  That was rejected.  We added another zone (Maumee) and upped our bid to $75/night and it was accepted.  DH wanted to go to $72 and he was right, because I think the Express Deal listed was for the same hotel and it was $72 a night.  Oh, well, it's our first time bidding.  Hopefully we get better on our next bidding experience.  We used the link on BFT's website.  Thanks!

Welcome to BiddingForTravel.com, sahmpaw.

Thank you for posting your bid, and for starting your bids from our Priceline link. As you've figured out, it's important to check rates before you start bidding so that you don't go too high. You always want to bid less than the Express Deal, and you want to get a substantial discount off retail rates. Since this hotel's retail rate was only $92, I might have waited for a better deal, or considered bidding for a 3* hotel; the 3* Express Deal in this zone was $51.
