  1. the 3.5 and 4 were selected at the time of the win...I'm not sure if the hilton is a 3.5 or 4* listing.
  2. Needed a hotel for a pre-cruise night. Bidding history: Day 1: 3.5* Downtown at $35 Add North Miami (max 2*) at $40 Add 3* at $40 add Miami Beach (3,3.5, 4*) at $40 Day 2: 4* Downtown at $45 3.5 and 4* Downtown at $50 -- Success
  3. Won 3* fort lauderdale downtown 1/13/2007, one night. Fort Lauderdale Grande Hotel and Yacht Club Winnign bid $131. I might have gotton it a bit cheaper, but I've been getting anxious to get something booked... Strangely enough, Priceline let me keep rebidding with the same settings...I simply clicked on the Hotels link at the top of the page, then clicked back into the "save 50%" link and re-entered my specs (indentically!)... Here's the history today: All for 3* Downtown: Bid $98 Rejected Reset and Bid $110 Rejected Reset and Bid $121 Rejected, but conteroffered to rebid $22 more. Reset and Bid $131 Accepted! (saved $10 off the counteroffer!) Anyway, I'm done for now...
  4. complete stay is just one night... 1/13/06 We're booked into the Yankee Clipper on 1/14, but need to stay somewhere on the 13th...so I'd like to be someplace close by, with some relatively easy way to get to the beach/ocean. We're crusing from the 15-19th... I won a room at the Bahia Mar on the 19th for our return, but I was hoping to try for someplace different for our arrival night. I'll try again later today and post results... -David
  5. I used the link from betterbidding and made several attempts for a 4* at either the downtown area or Fort Lauderdale beach area. I know there's a 4 star at both the beach and downtown, so started with both of those...then added the other zones which did not have 4 *'s to bid again... Started at 105 and worked up to $130...still fails...I'll try a few more tomorrow... Question: Does a resort qualify as *better* than 4*?...or is it a stand alone category...ie, if a zone does not have a 4* but does have a resort, will it bump up to resort in that zone?...if not, then I can give this at least one more go...(at least one of the zones does not have a 4* but does have a resort... _David
  6. Accepted @ $98.00 for 1 night Searching Fort Lauderdale beach only... Bahia mar Beach Resort and Yachting Center Tried: Resorts @ 135 rejected 4Star @ 110 rejected Also tried on Jan 13, 2006 Resorts @ 125 rejected 4 Star @ 100 rejected 3 star @ 95 rejected I'm still working on Jan13th....I suspect that the pricing will be the same although the "list price" is higher on the 19th than the 13th...
  7. Tried $30 and rejected... Accepted $40.00 Cheapest rate was $112 Two nights 5/27 and 5/28 Hotel was Holiday Inn Select on Huron Line...long ways away from anything...(>5 miles from Downtown)
