We accessed Priceline through the BFT link.

We needed one room for Saturday night, on the same day, at 7:30 pm.

We first tried the 4 star Westin Southfield Detroit, which is the sole 4 star Priceline hotel in Southfield.

We bid from $63.00 per night up to $87.00, and were rejected each time with no counter offer. The Westin had a Priceline retail price for tonight of $149.00, which on a weekend suggests there is some event going on in Southeast Michigan.

We then bid on the 3.5 star Sheraton Detroit Novi.

Priceline's retail site was at $109.00 per night.
Priceline had a Novi 3.5 Star Express Deal for today at $82.00.

The Sheraton Detroit Novi is the only 3.5 Star Priceline hotel in Novi.

We have purchased several Priceline stays at this hotel in the past 10 years. In the past, we were accepted at the Sheraton Detroit Novi on numerous Priceline bids in a range from a low price of $46.00 per night, to a high of $56.00 per night.

There are now 9 free rebid zones when bidding on a Novi Michigan, 3.5 Star hotel. Using the permutation technique, this gives us pretty much unlimited bids.

Today, September 24, 2016, we began bidding one dollar at a time, starting at $62. We immediately received a counter offer to raise our bid to $87.00.
We rejected.

We were accepted at $77.00, which Priceline says is 29% off. This is $5.00 per night less than the 3.5* Novi Express Deal, and $10.00 per night less than the $87.00 Priceline counter offer.

The price may be higher because we were seeking a Saturday night check in.

This is an excellent hotel at a very good price, and our relatives and business associates are always very pleased with the facilities and staff. Priceline gives the hotel an 8.4 guest rating. The hotel has free parking, and is also in a very nice area, with many excellent restaurants nearby.
