Checked out the Express Deals yesterday for tonight's arrival before I bid my own price. 3* was $93 on Express Deals. Was hoping to beat that. I bid $85 but it was rejected. Received a counter offer for approx $103 (not 100% sure of the exact number, but it's +/- a couple of bucks from that). That was too high for my liking, and there are no free-rebid zones for a 3* here. I had time, so I waited 24 hours until after I got into Sedona to bid again. I checked Express Deals first, and they actually went UP for tonight's check-in, at slightly over $100 for a 3* tonight.
I bid again for a 3* at $95 (approximately the half-way point between my original 3* bid yesterday and their counter-offer). Bid was accepted by Los Abrigados Resort & Spa.
Manager at front desk was extremely pleasant. I was pleasantly surprised with a 2nd floor 1 BR Suite. It's not super high-end, but it has a large balcony, couch, chair, dining table, kitchenette with fridge, coffee maker. microwave, toaster oven, dishwasher, sink, two-burner stove, and two flat-screen TVs. Free WiFi. Nice grounds. Pool, huge hot tub, less than a mile from downtown Sedona. Lots of amenities and two restaurants/bars on property. There was a $14/night resort fee however. Still, very pleased.
I started all my bidding from your Priceline widget in the right hand margin of this website.
