We accessed Priceline through the BFT Link.

We needed a hotel room for one night by Detroit Metro Airport (DTW), since our clients had an early morning flight out on Friday morning.


There were two 3.5 star hotel Express Deals for the Detroit Airport zone, both for $63.  Both indicated they were about 46% off.


The Priceline Retail price for the Radisson tonight is $119.  I believe the second Express Deal was for the Marriott Detroit Airport.


All of the 3.5 star hotels in the Detroit Airport zone have Priceline customer ratings of 8.0 and up, and all have free Shuttles to the Airport.


There are 8 zones in Detroit with less than 3.5 stars, which gave us almost unlimited free rebids using the permutation method.  We started at $49, and immediately received a counteroffer of $63, the same as the Express Deal.  We bid one dollar at a time, and were rejected from $50 through $55.  We then increased our bid by $2 to $57, and were accepted at the Radisson, which has a Priceline Customer rating of 8.0.  Priceline said we saved 53%.


I dropped off my clients at the Radisson.  The lobby was newly renovated, and very impressive.  This was apparently previously a Metropolitan hotel.

Thank you for posting your bid, and for bidding through our Priceline link. Yes, this was previously the 2* Metropolitan Hotel, so they must have extensively renovated it.
