I would recommend that you bid $100 and if that is rejected, bid $10 higher after each 24 hour lockout expires. Ritz Carlton does not participate in Priceline.

Please place your Priceline/Hotwire bids/purchases through the link in my signature or by clicking the Priceline/Hotwire banners on the right side of the screen. And please keep Priceline in mind for your conventional travel bookings as well.
Please place all of your Priceline bids through our Priceline link.

If I am rejected after reaching $130, should I keep bidding? Thanks.

You stated that $130 was your limit and since this is pretty much a last minute bid, why have you not started yet? You don't have time to waste here. If you would prefer to start higher, there's nothing wrong with that since you have very little time here. Just so you know, someone asked for a bidding strategy on Thursday night for a stay two days later when there were no free re-bids and there was a festival going on where most hotels are sold out. I told him to just bid his limit since there was little likelihood he would be successful anyway. So he did and he was rejected. Now his only option is to pay full price or not go at all. I don't think you want that to happen. Wouldn't you rather risk paying a little more than you have to than being locked out altogether? At least you have a couple of days of re-bidding time if you don't put this off any longer.
