Tried to book in Lake Mary, FL ( a suburb of Orlando along I-4). 2 1/2 star rejected up to $45, rebid Sanford at $48 and 3* Marriott was accepted. The hotel is just off I-4 and only 5 minutes from the Lake Mary exit.
After 3 rebids, won for $52. I think there is a trend here based on previous win at same price 5 days earlier. Started at $42, and got the free rebid if price was increased by $13. chose to do manual rebid and saved $3. Back end of trip to Acapulco on the AA deal of $120 rt. Good cheap trip.
No, I have seen it on EasyClickTravel for $67. I really would prefer to be in the airport itself, so the Sofitel or the Hilton would be best. The other 4*, the Aurora would be the gamble, but something I could live with.
Been trying to get a room before a return trip to the US at Gatwick and have been rejected numerous tries up to $90. The prior posts seem to show the LeMeridien was successful, but since the hotel was bought out by Sofitel, I'm am not sure if it participates with PL. Haven't gpne to 3* based on a bad experience with the Holiday Inn at Gatwick. Anyone have ideas. Rebids used the Luton zone for 4*. The PL compare page shows no 4*, but it appears when you bid.
Paid $80 plus fees of $15.95 total of $95.95 which allows Entertaiment rebate of $30 brings cost to $65.95. Hyatt website had cheapest rate of $157.50 (AAA). Since FFN doesn't begin until 9/1/05, no reason to not book through Hotwire. Easy to identify hotel since Airport hotel doesn't have shuttle. The hotel is IN the airport.
A friend booked trip to NYC for 11/04-11/06. Found out after the trip was booked that it is the New York city Marathon weekend. Hotels seem to be very tight. Tried all kinds of rebids for all kinds of Manhatten zones and all were rejected up to $225. Will try again in a few days.
For Venice, I would sugest the Metropole Hotel. You can book directly with them or use one of the hotel sites such as www.venere.com or www.GTA Hotels. For Rome I suggest www.hotelmozart.com. Both of the suggestions are wonderful, though you can't assure you get them from Priceline.
Bid for friend. Rejected at $38 offered counter at $47. We rebid $42, rejected, accepted at $45. This is a wonderful hotel, right in the airport. Perfect for early morning flight. Another new hotel to add to the list. I have stayed there many times and have found it to be one of the the nicest hotels in the area.
