Before I get to the question in the headline I must give a quick outline of what I face.
The problem for me is that I am traveling to Montreal with a buddy and he has zero capacity for adventure or risk regardless of the potential reward.
We have been to Montreal 3 times this year and August will be trip #4.
He always does the booking and he is not the type to read MERB. I always suggest Priceline.com and the feature called "Name Your Own Price®". This conversation does not go far. It has no logical basis in his view and he easily defeats any positive aspect of it.
Well now I keep telling him of the great prices that have been won for the Hyatt via "Name Your Own Price®" and he has gone as far as to say ok if I can get the Hyatt for under 100 then do it.
So if I am right it seams that a bid for a 3 star in downtown Montreal for 50, 60, 70, and so on will eventually result in an excepted bid at the Hyatt.
So what are the chances of a successful bit as stated above resulting in a hotel other then Hyatt.
My friend want's the Hyatt but I think he likes the Delta and Novotel (I told him Novotel has a bad reputation on MERB), and I want to pay under 70 or as close to 70 as possible.
Your thoughts and comments please.
