Pretty far in advance, but son is getting married in downtown KC and didn't want to wait until last minute. Site is between Plaza and Downtown areas. The Phillips Hotel is already showing as sold out for 9/19 on their website. That removes the location for very cheap rooms out of the equation. Nothing cheap at all In the Plaza area under Express Deals. Downtown had a 4* with reviews of 8+ for $92. I assumed this was the Sheraton based on prior wins. Location would be ideal since only 10 blocks from wedding and reception site. Started bidding at $80. Went to $83 and won at $85. Their website price is $199. This is about the range this hotel seems to go at even when waiting until closer to the time you stay. Of course, would have liked lower, but I'm satisfied and don't have to worry about it. The fact that the Phillips showed as "SOLD OUT" really moved my decision up. Didn't want to take the chance of others becoming sold out and rates increasing.

Yes I used the link😀

Thank you for placing your bid through our link to Priceline. You were very lucky with your assumption because hotels frequently show sold out for single Saturday nights when then are not sold out.

Checking the dates of your stay on Hotel Phillips website, it is $209/night for your dates. Always check the full date range. Note what I said earlier about single Saturday nights.

Probably need to add a little more info. Made a separate bid for Friday night first since it was just my wife and I for that night. Got the Sheraton for $85. The Saturday bid for 4 rooms came after that. I too, went to the Phillips website and it is still showing sold out as of now for 9/19. Didn't really make any difference where we stayed at Friday, but after I got the Sheraton for Friday, I was pretty certain would also get that on Saturday when we wanted it for proximity to the wedding. Sorry I misled you. Was just trying to condense my post.
