I bid via Cheryl's link. This is the third or fourth time I got the Holiday Inn when I bid via Priceline name your own price. I always bid the 4 star on Silom and I expect to get it. And I want it. I call them, give the hotel my Holiday Inn number and I am always upgraded to a larger room.  This hotel is fine with Priceline bids.

I bid early to get things out of the way. I realize it may be a lower price closer to the day. Still, I saved about 50%.  This is an excellent hotel in a perfect location.

4 nights $58 a night and $12 a night taxes or $70 a night in all.
The nights of January 2,3,4,5 of 2013 which is high season.

When I went to place a bid, the red box came up saying any bid under $58 is likely to be rejected. Thus, I bid $58 and it took it on the first try. I should have bid lower just to see what would happen.

For users, I just want to add that I had a great stay at the Holiday Inn.  They treat priceline bidders perfectly fine. They offered a free upgrade to a nice room. However, know that you can ask, even with a priceline bid, for the executive floors (there are two). It was an additional US$30 a night which is a great deal.  Free breakfast and dinner in the lounge, free computer and printer as drinks all day long free in the lounge.
