This one actually took awhile to get accepted. Using the PriceLine link, I tried 4* hotels in the Downtown/Superdome and French Quarter regions starting bidding at $62 and increasing all the way up to $92 increasing by $2 each bid. I had counteroffers for $108 but didn't accept them. I gave up on getting a 4* hotel since prices were approaching the rates I could get from Hotwire. I switched to a 3.5* hotel for the Downtown/Superdome and French Quarter regions starting at $60 and finally got the bid accepted at $83. I hoped for less because others have had bids accepted as low as $62 for a 4* hotel in the French Quarter, but no such luck on these particular dates. It was still cheaper than Hotwire though, which isn't always the case with my PL bidding attempts.
