    Okay, before you tell me to go read 5000 prior posts I did that last night.

    I have one quick question. I looked at 2 hotels last night. I have to have my bid in today. They will take 3.5 hrs at one and 5.0 hrs at the other. Is bidding 75$ an hr out of the question?

    They want me turn a bid on a 40 week cycle and a 52 week cycle. I am sure that is normal but my other 2 large commercial accounts don't request that. So it will save them 7200$ annually combined with the 40 week cycle.

    You probably won't get $75/hr on a hotel property. Too many people bid on them and it keeps prices dirt cheap..

    Ive had bad luck bidding on any hotel property. They want it done so cheap you might as well give them a check everytime you go there to mow. The worst ones are the ones owned by Indians. They are so cheap its gotten to be funny.
