Priceline Hotel: 4* Saint Petersburg (St. Pete Beach - Treasure Island) No Win

Tried to get a 4* for 6 nights on St. Pete Beach. I bid up to $110 (i.e. $127 incl taxes) and did not get accepted. Not even a "raise your bid" counteroffer.

I gave up at $110 since I could get the Tradewinds IG for EUR 550 ($128 per night) incl taxes at lastminute.de. I saw later that they also incude the ~$25 resort fee, so I overbid by $24 (incl taxes).

Since we preferred the Don Cesar Hotel, we ended up booking the Don Cesar incl breakfast and taxes (but excluding resort fee) for EUR 790 on GTA Hotels. This corresponds to $183 per night. I guess breakfast for 2 is worth around $40 per night, so we ended up not paying much more than my bid at Priceline, but we got our preferred hotel, and there is some flexibility.

I guess I will try Priceline again in a week, and if I get it lower than $85, I will cancel my reservation at the Don Cesar.

Now off trying to Priceline the hotels for the rest of our trip!
