Heard about these two sites on a talk radio show earlier this week. They are both forums about exactly what prices and what hotels people have been able to get through at Priceline and Hotwire. I used priceline for my stay in San Antonio a couple of weeks ago. I saved about $70 from the list price, but was still $30 over what someone else got since I didn't start my bid low enough. Hope they help!

*bump*

Still good resources. I've used Biddingfortravel.com a couple of times since then and paid $30-40/night for nice hotels in big cities.

One could add http://www.iBidlow.com to this list. Its a pretty good index for Hotwire/Priceline hotels and is easier to navigate than the forums, though I still use Better Bidding occasionally.

HotelDealsRevealed.com is another good resource for Priceline and Hotwire.
