  1. Thanks and I will also use BB when I go for 3 rooms in Key West in the near future. P.S. La Isla in Hoboken was featured tonight on the Food Network on the show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives with Guy Fieri. ;)

Congrats, BID ACCEPTED for $45.00 + 13.24 (taxes + fees) = $58.24 :D 3.5* Doubletree By Hilton Orlando At Seaworld 10100 International Drive Orlando, FL 32821 Hotel is for one night only to be near the airport for the trip home. I accepted the offer to add a rental car to my hotel win, changed the itinerary dates for the car to include 8 days, scored a Full Size car at the Orlando Airport with Budget for $100.31 per week + $14.00 for the extra day and with taxes & fees, $177.26 all in.
  3. Ruffian, If you are only interested in finding a room for the night near the intersection of Interstates I24 and I75, this is a good option. If you are a tourist to the Chattanooga area, look at the post for the Reid House or any other 3,3.5,4 * property in downtown zone. Regards, Keoni
  4. $65 bucks per night puts you in Downtown. This Hotel has two parts, an Historic tower (dates back to service days as a Union Army Hospital during the Civil War) and a much newer part you will most likely be staying in. This is a great deal for the price!!!!
  5. Began bidding in Airport Zone (4) at $55 for 4* Not Accepted added rebid zone $60.00 Not Accepted added rebid zone $62.00 Not Accepted, requested I add $20.00 and rebid... No, thanks! added rebid zone $65.00 Not Accepted added rebid zone $70.00 Not Accepted added Hollywood $72.00 Whoo Pee!!! ACCEPTED!!! :) Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Airport & Cruise Port Hotel 1825 Griffin Rd Dania, FL 33004 954-920-3500 Room Cost (avg. per room, per night): $72.00 (USD) Number of Rooms: 1 Number of Guests Per Room: 2 Number of Nights: 1 Room Subtotal: $72.00 (USD) Taxes and Fees: $16.18 (USD) Total Room Cost: $88.18 (USD) Regards, Keoni :)
  6. So, the bottom line is when your bidding process says you will be shown the price and all the taxes and fees on the next page, it is only the fees PRICELINE is charging you, not what the hotel may add on after the fact. You should be willing to live with whatever a hotel decides to add on after you arrive and this will be between you and the hotel because the bidding page gives you a generic warning that other fees may be charged by the hotel. Caveat Emptor!
  7. You both have missed the point. The purpose of this trip means I will spend most of my time AWAY from the hotel. I was seeking a property in the downtown area for a central location and 4*'s to increase the chance of getting a good quality property. The URL for this CONDOMINIUM R E S O R T is www.naplesbayRESORT.com. The title on the main hotel website is NAPLES BAY RESORT. When you click on the website tab "about us" the first sentence begins: Naples
  8. The title of the property is "NAPLES BAY RESORT " When checking this property's website they state there is a daily Resort Fee but I could not find anywhere on the website what that fee might be... I emailed Priceline for confirmation that there are no RESORTS in the Naples Zone, and that this property IS contracted as a 4* and not a resort and would breach their contract if they charged a Daily Resort Fee. So far the reply has been to provide the standard fine print that indicates once bid... no refunds, etc... I clearly understand the bidding process and that if I was bidding on a 4* and a Resort was also available in that zone, I might be upgraded to the resort, but that is clearly not the case here. Any guidance would be appreciated as once you arrive and the hotel asks for the Credit Card, if this isn't resolved beforehand, we're stuck.
  9. Previously bid several times for a 4* using low bids with $10.00 per night bonus cash from PRICELINE.

Bid 3.5* Orlando Airport (MCO) $45.00 Re-bid Zone 1 $50.00 Re-bid Zone 2 $55.00 ACCEPTED! $55.00 x 2 (nights) = $110.00 + $22.68 (Taxes & Fees) = $132.68 Florida Hotel And Conference Center 1500 Sand Lake Road Orlando, FL 32809 407-859-1500 :) Checked hotel reviews from Priceline and many, many complaints that this hotel is a $27 or $30 taxi ride from the airport and also hits folks up for a daily resort fee of $11.00. Reviews are very mixed making this a crap shoot at best.
  14. :) WOO HOO! Another one bites the dust... Da Dah, Another one bites the dust! Used the PRICELINE link and bid as follows: Resort bid for Zone 1 $60 Nadda added re-bid Zone 2 $61 Nope added re-bid Zone 3 $62 Try Again added re-bid Zone 4 $63 Still going added re-bid Zone 5 $64 Not done yet added re-bid Zone 6 $65 I'm goin for it added re-bid Zone 7 $66 Still plenty of re-bids added re-bid Zone 8 $67 Yippy Ky Yay! Your bid accepted for the Hyatt Grand Cypress Goin to DISNEYWORLD! Regards, Keoni :)
  15. :) Tried bidding previously for a 4* at $65, $66, $67, $70 but was not successful for this particular night. I have been bidding for about 5 or 6 weeks sporadically. Decided to up the ante... Closed the browser and dropped the star level to 3.5 and bid as follows: $67, added rebid $70, closed browser and reopened for 3.5 * and bid $73, added final re-bid zone at $75 and scored the Westin. I didn't win as low as most but this night has been troublesome and it is worth a few extra dollars to finish booking this leg of the adventure. Regards, Keoni :)
  16. Priceline asked if I wanted to extend my stay for the same price. I clicked to extend but my request wasn't accepted. Will continue trying for one night for September 13-14. Regards, Keoni :)
  17. AaronJb, I did a fantastic tour through Louisiana/Texas last year staying at mostly 4* Priceline hotels via Betterbidding! This year me and the family are doing the Betterbidding Fandango thru the Northeast and Nova Scotia! This place ROCKS! Regards, Keoni :)

  20. Hmmm, :) This thread started out asking about Parking rates in Jersey City and ended up talking about everything BUT parking rates in Jersey City. I also was wondering about parking near the Westin haven't had any luck finding anything. There was one link on BB about parking near Path stations but the link for Pavonia/Newport isn't working. Anyone know the scoops about parking rates? Regards. Keoni :)
