Hotel's rate w/ AAA discount was $209.00 per night- $474.00 total w/ tax

Priceline Express deal was $181.00/night, $438.00 w/ taxes and fees, but I had a 10% off coupon to bring it down to $402.00. It was a bit of a leap of faith, but there were only 4 four star hotels in the Historic District and based on the amenities, I was pretty confident it had to be the Marion, so I pulled the trigger and I turned out right. The risk as I saw it was they might have manipulated the rating or the area, but I read enough positives that I trusted them. I figured the downside would have been the newer Downtown Holiday Inn, and I could have lived with that.

Hotwire has a four star for $157.00 per night, with tax and fees, it comes to $402.00 as well. I expect its the Marion.

I tried autobidding with a $115.00 opening bid and $160.00 max, but it was rejected.

Hope this helps.
