Priceline Hotel: 3* Virginia Beach (Area) Doubletree Hotel Virginia Beach

Hello Forum!

Wanting to stay in Virginia Beach but on the oceanfront. I understand the way the site works and that I may not get an oceanfront hotel.

My question is - When I go to the Name Your Own Price section, it shows a 3.5* option but the list for this area does not include a 3.5* hotel. Do we know what hotel this may be? I'm thinking the 3.5* option may only be oceanfront hotels which would allow me to bid on this area and guarantee an oceanfront hotel. (I realize the 3* may land me a hotel like the DoubleTree which is not oceanfront)

Thanks in advance for any help that can be provided.

Well, I tried bidding on 3.5* hotels starting at $110. 5 free rebid zones so I rebid moving up to $140 with no luck.

I closed my browser and started over bidding on 3* hotels. First bid at $125 was accepted at the Doubletree. There was a 5% off coupon using the code SUMMER, so that softened the blow a little.

I can't say I'm happy about the win. I really wanted to be oceanfront and the Doubletree hotel really seems to throw a wrench in the system when bidding on this area. I've travelled extensively and can usually get what I want using the forum and the rebid zones.

I'm sure the hotel is nice, but not being on the beach is disappointing. I also think I could have got this hotel for less and wish I started bidding at the same $110 that I used for the 3.5* hotels.

Used the PRICELINE link. Thanks for your help.

Sorry to hear this property is not on the beach as you were hoping for... hopefully you'll be able to make it work for your needs (maybe they have an area shuttle that can take you to and pick you up from the beach??)

Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your bidding.

Enjoy your stay... hope it works out better for your plans then you anticipate.

Hey Duke, I've had the same experience down there and got Doubletree twice. What makes it challenging is it's rated a 2.5 star but recategorizes as a 3 star when you bid on 3 star. I will give it a shot right now and try to post results (rolls dice).
