Not a bargain, probably too far ahead for that, but I got impatient. Previous wins in the peak summer period were from $135 - $170. I've been watching PL Express deals which has a 5* for $203 in the same area, with one ammenity that they accept pets for a fee, and the only 5* on the BFT hotel list that accepts pets is the Meridien, which we really like. Didn't want the Renaissance b/c so many review say how small the rooms are. Very few previous Eurostars hits so thought it was unlikely. So I was thinking a winning bid might score the Meridien, but nope. I should have checked the Eurostars site before bidding, a few months ago a basic room for July was $238. Now their basic single room with "small bed" is $145, and a double room is $162 (2 of us), so hoping for the latter, probably have to beg for that, PL usually gets the lowest rooms.
I've done a few bids in the last few weeks going up to $170 using free rebids, with no luck. I jumped this bid from $150 to $165 for no good reason, so a bid between those might have been accepted. Still happy not to have to pay $203 for the Express offer.
Used the PL link on BFT to support this site, thx staff.
