I started Priceline bidding 3 weeks before planned travel dates. The first two days I started at $80 and increased by $2 per bid (4* minimum) while adding new zones. The four zones I bid within were Magnificent Mile, Millenium Park, Grant Park, and River North. My highest bid was $92 before today. I always check Hotwire rates first to see if prices have moved since the prior day. Generally this has been a very effective strategy for my bookings and I highly recommend it. Sure enough, Hotwire had a special for $88/night in the Magnificent Mile area that wasn't there previously. PL express deals were nowhere near this price. I thought my initial bid of $80 would be a low-ball start but to my delight it was accepted on my first bid. An added bonus is this hotel doesn't charge a hotel fee like most 4*+ places do when booking on Priceline so I saved an extra $14. As always, I used this site's Priceline link.
