The hotel prices in Paris for this time of year are a bargain.   Prices are 20-40% lower than usual.   After checking the BfT hotel list and Pricelines bidding areas, I felt sure I was going to get lucky with a 5* hotel in the Champs-Elysees/Etoile area.  I placed my bids thru the Priceline link with permutations believing I would get one of the possible hotels in this zone per the Bft hotel list.   I thought sure it would be the Hotel Napolean which another bidder got for $175 two months ago.   The express deal for a  5* in this zone was $170.   I had to bid up to $166 before my bid was accepted.   However it was not for the Hotel Napolean, but for the Hotel de Vigny.   Please place this hotel on the list for possible 5* hotels in this zone.

Thank you for placing your bid through our link to Priceline. Did you read the introductory comments on the Hotel List?

tilepusher will add this hotel to the Hotel List as he does with all hotels first reported.

The Hotel Napolean is in a different zone than the Hotel de Vigny.

The Hotel Napoleon and Hotel de Vigny are in the same zone, but the $170 Express Deal was clearly not a match for the Hotel Napoleon. The Express Deal for the Hotel Napoleon had a guest rating of 9, while this one had no guest rating (which should always be a red flag). Wishful thinking is often dangerous when using opaque services such as Priceline and Hotwire.

tilepusher changed the title to the correct zone. The zone you listed doesn't even have 5* hotels through Priceline.
