JudyADenver: Priceline guests do usually get the least desirable rooms. But if the hotels are nice, the least desirable will be nice too. If I remember correctly, the four 4* hotels in Buckhead get all good reviews by Priceline users. At the Intercontinental, we were not by the elevator and our view was of a building across the street that was under construction. But for $70/night, why do I care when the purpose of my trip was to go to a friend's wedding and not a "hotel getaway" type of trip. The room was lovely.

Free rebid means you bid in a zone that would not have a 4* hotel available (if you're bidding for a 4* in the first place). This means you get to rebid right away but you wouldn't get a hotel in that particular zone since they don't have a 4*. Makes sense or am I confusing you more?

So you know, I started bidding for Buckhead a few months before the trip and I couldn't get a room and the Intercontinental showed booked. I ended up waiting till the last minute and got the Intercontinental. Apparently, they block off rooms for awhile but release them 4-6 weeks before your date if they ended up not booking all of them.

I do wish I had investigated hotels before I booked my flight. I could easily have arranged for the shopping on the weekend as opposed to our current Mon, Tues, Wed. The Ritz does have a shopping package @ $ 289 with breakfast and the day of the week does not impact the rates whereas the Westin only has shoppers special rates for the weekend. We can also get the Sheraton on Travelocity for $159---do you think we would be happy with the Sheraton?

Hi Judy,
Lenox mall is a stop on Marta, the subway also, so any other hotel on the line will give you access without driving. You may also want to check North instead of south into the city...Enjoy your stay !

I've been having a similar problem. I need 2 nights in Buckhead, and Priceline has rejected all my bids. I finally made a reservation at the Sleep Inn (800 Sidney Marcus Blvd).

The Sleep Inn is not as close to Lenox Square as some other hotels, but it is not too far away. On the map it looks like a 5 or 10 minute drive. This hotel has moderate prices (which you want) which includes free parking and breakfast. It also has good reviews on Tripadvisor.

Thanks to everyone who gave me so many great ideas. We ended up making a reservation at Residence Inn Buckhead/Lenox Park--less than 1 mile from Lenox shopping with a shuttle service, breakfast, free parking. We will have 2 bedrooms and each have our own bathroom for $209/night.

Too bad the shoppers specials are not valid during the week. The special at the Ritz Carlton expired the a few weeks before our arrival. For $289 w/breakfast, that would have been our first choice.
