Rack rate $354. Got 44% off for a Luxury Collection hotel in Embassy Row. 

 

Bid up to $170--no luck. On bidding page Priceline adds an arbitrary $25 "hotel fee" to cover 2  night resort fee. So the total would be $25 higher to bidding total. If you bid--and get a no-fee hotel like the Dupont--you will pay for a resort fee you shouldn't be charged.

 

Amenities: Pet friendly, gym, restaurant, business center

If you bid--and get a no-fee hotel like the Dupont--you will pay for a resort fee you shouldn't be charged.

I don't think so, the bidding check-out page should look something like this:

 

Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: US$ 197.00

Subtotal: US$ 394.00

Taxes and Service Fees: US$ 76.20

Total Room Charges*: US$ 470.20

Hotel Fee: US$ 24.50

Total Cost*: US$ 494.70

No surprises! Total cost includes estimated hotel fees (e.g resort fees). Your total cost will never be higher than displayed above.

If the bid above was successful, i believe you would only be charged the 'Total Room Charges' of $470.20. Any hotel fee would be paid directly to the hotel, and if the hotel doesn't charge a resort fee, then none would be collected. PRICELINE is showing you the maximum hotel fee that could be charged so that you have a better idea of the possible maximum cost.

Regardless, looks like a nice deal for this PRICELINE EXPRESS win and hopefully you are looking forward to your trip.
