What I usually do when going to a big city is identify an area close to where she needs to be, go to Priceline and bid on 4 star hotels within that area. I've stayed in numerous hotels that were regularly priced at $125 per night for $50.
I've never used priceline, how does it work?
You essentially pick a city and area within the city and make a bid on either a 2, 3 or 4 star hotel. Then within a few minutes, your bid will either be accepted or denied. If accepted, it tells you the name of the hotel that accepted your bid and gives you the opportunity to make a reservation. I stayed at the downtown Hilton and Ramada both in Atlanta for $50 a night when the normal room price was over $125.
Sweet, I'll have to try it. Does it work the same for airfare?
I don't think you can actually bid on airfare, but it will give you a ton of flight options ordered by price.
