First, I tried bidding to land the 4* Mayfair, because both Priceline Express Deals and Hotwire had a hotel matching its description for $120 a night. Using free rebids and adding the Coral Gables zone, I bid up to $110 but did not have success.


Next, I tried for the 3.5* Aloft Miami Dadeland, because it wasn't too far away and because of its free parking -- a big selling point! It had a lowest advertised rate for these nights of $135. I bid $95, added the Coral Gables zone and went to $100, but I got nothing.


And here's where I made my mistake: I added Coconut Grove and bid $103, landing the Courtyard by Marriott. It's a great hotel, but it was advertising a AAA rate of just $104 for one of my two nights. I should have bid $95 or lower before adding Coconut Grove, because I saved only about $25 by using Priceline. The hotel also charges a steep $29 a night for parking. But we loved the location and had a view of Biscayne Bay, even if the room was rather small.
