It depends. If I am looking for a room for one or two people, I always do Priceline bidding. If I need a room for 3 or more, I just got with Hotwire. You can get a pretty good idea of which hotel you will get by cross referencing with betterbidding.com

Priceline can only guarantee you 1 bed. If you need 2 beds, you would need to use Hotwire and enter "4" for the number of people.

lmtclub.com is IMHO currently the best. Prices similar to bidding on Priceline or Hotwire Hot Rates but lmtclub is not a blind site and bookings are refundable per the normal terms of the individual hotel. They charge to join but a Google search should find you a code for free membership.

Priceline and Hotwire are still useful as described above.

Travelpony sometimes has good stuff.

Beyond that the meta search sites like trivago and besttravelcoupon.com let you search all the other sites quickly.

And if you are zeroed in on a specific property that is a timeshare check eBay, vrbo etc to see if you can rent direct from an owner.

Marriott's best rate guarantee is great for saving money if your hotel is in North America. If you find a lower rate they price match it and give you extra 25 % off. Hyatt's the same, but 20%. This can sometimes save a ton of money if it's for a longer stay.

+1 bidding on priceline or hotwire after looking on betterbidding. Priceline does guarantee only 1 bed and I always call the hotel directly if my bid is successful if I require 2 beds in the room. Only once was I stuk with a King size bed but the room had a pullout sofa.
