Edit bid adjustments for hotel campaigns or ad groups

Before you begin

You can only edit bid adjustments for locations at the campaign level. Devices and audience bid adjustments can be made at the campaign or ad group level. All other bid adjustments must be made only at the ad group level.

Before creating or editing bid adjustments, it's a good idea to learn how they interact and affect your bid. Learn more about bid adjustments for hotel campaigns

Thus, all bid adjustments are ignored except a -100% device bid adjustment. If bid adjustments need to be made for this bid strategy, it can only be made on the campaign level.
