Bidding on a 4 star in the center

The first thing I see as I travel around to several different forums and from emails from friends? The NH Carlton is in play. More so than the NH Amsterdam Centre.....at least right now with recent bids.

And for the summer months ahead it looks like the price point is somewhere around $62 or $63 USD for the lowest winning bid.

July 22-26 $65 first bid. Carlton

July 8-10 $63. First try at $61 failed. Carlton

August 11-13 $69 which was a counter offer. Carlton

July 21-27 $63 first bid Carlton

There may be other 4's in play. But if so they are not being posted.

Not a good plan. Many 4-star hotels in Central Canals area and in East as well.

You can place a new bid after 24hrs of your first bid or you can use a different CC in order to bid again.

There are no 4*'s coming in either area on Express?

' Therere are no 4*'s coming in either area on Express? '

Do you mean that there are no 4-Star Express offers for your dates? Or do you wanna no if a 4-star has been on offer in the past?

I've experienced that sometimes if you are looking for multiple rooms sometimes the number of Express deal offers can be limited.

Which dates are you searching for?

Yes, I'm looking to book 3 rooms in the center Dec 5 - Dec 8, so that's probably what it is so. I have been bidding over the last few days, and I've plenty of time. Just new to NYOP and didn't want to string things along needlessly if there were free bids available. I'd rather vote every 24 hours for a central hotel than risk getting something in the East.

I never had much luck with the combination Express deals and multiple rooms. Like mentioned here before, Hotwire is more suitable for booking multiple rooms. For your dates there are multiple secret hot rate hotels available.

You have enough time, just see if you can score a good deal with NYOP , be sure to check if you are not bidding higher than a room via Hotwire would cost you.

I have used PL NYOP to book multiple rooms before and never had an issue.

Funnily enough I booked a hotel on PL Express Deals the other day, It turned out to be the NH Musica. When I put in that I wanted two rooms it offered me a lower price (€55) than it had previously offered for one room (€61). First time I have seen this. I wonder how common it is?

I noticed that too. I checked for one room on Express and it offered me €80. When I put in 3 rooms it went down to €71 - but when I went back onto the site to book them it was upped to €80. I have a funny feeling that €71 is probably close to the mark for the NYOP.
