Unless otherwise noted, all PRICELINE EXPRESS deals are for double occupancy.  You can often workaround this when a 'bed choice' is offered and one of the rooms available is designed to accommodate triple/quad occupancy.  Technically your reservation is still for double occupancy, but i don't know of anyone how has yet had an issue showing up with 3/4 guests when a specific room type was purchased that is designed to accommodate the number of guests in their group.

 

For each of the hotels above have you tried searching using our BiddingHelper.com tool and in the PRICELINE EXPRESS tab hover your mouse over the 'FIND MATCH in HOTEL LIST' button (or tab this button if on a mobile device)... the best guess for each of the hotels above should be revealed to you.

 

However, if none of these PRICELINE EXPRESS hotels shows a 'Bed Choice' that will accommodate your family's occupancy needs, i would sooner recommend using HOTWIRE where you can search for up to quad occupancy per room, and HOTWIRE guarantees sleeping accommodations for everyone that you included in your search.... or are you willing to take the occupancy risk and hope that the hotel will assign you a room that will comfortably accommodate quad occupancy?

 

What are your needs for this trip and what is your maximum budget (per nite before fees/taxes)?

 

Please remember to return to BetterBidding and use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases... or thru our sister site MAPSandHOTELS.com for your regular rate purchases.

 

Let us know your thoughts regarding the occupancy issue and how you'd like to proceed and we'll take it from there.
