I checked Express Deals before bidding. I saw The Roosevelt, Wyndham New Yorker and a 4* DT all under $120 but not quite what I wanted in terms of location/quality. I did see a 4.5* with a 9+ customer rating for $145 in the Madison Square Garden zone and I targeted that. All bids were 4.5*. First bid at $100, then $125 and then $135 to make sure nothing lower than Express Deals was out there. So many free rebid zones. I then did 4 more rebids in $2 increments and hit this property. Very pleased. Will do my last 2 nights as a separate thread if I hit anything. This place looks lovely and I can walk across the street and take the LIRR to the US Open which is much nicer than the 7 train. My "live" bid zones were MTE, Times Square, Rockefeller, Grand Central and Madison Square Garden. I know it's a 4*, but the Yotel in MTW/Hell's burned me so bad that I just skipped that zone entirely. I had to work 5 business days from that room and got the base pod or whatever they called it and can't explain to you how claustrophobic I was by the end of the trip. Blah. Anyway, this place looks lovely and I don't have to work on the trip so I'm doubly pleased.
