Thank you and I will reply with my experiences upon my return.

I have two nagging thoughts about this reservation. One, I am in Canada so I used the "California, 99999" workaround. I hope this won't be an issue as they have accepted the bid and likely charged my MC. Two, I wonder if the hotel staff will "downgrade" our stay because we used PL. I would think Westin staff are professional enough not to make this an issue.

I wouldn't sweat it.

I have never heard of either Priceline or a hotel mailing anyone anything. Some hotels do descriminate against Priceline/Hotwire customers, but it's not many, and i have heard that this one is just fine. The hotel is actually 2 towers and every room has a nice view... we may not be put on the top floor (although you could always nicely ask upon check-in, "something high up if available would be great")... but we won't be looking at the dumpsters either!

Your address makes no difference once your credit card is charged. I don't think the hotel even finds any details about the credit card. I've done many Priceline stays as a Canadian customer at hotels in various locations. Just enter your proper Canadian home (or business) address on the form when you check in. Have a credit card ready at check-in for incidentals, of course, but it doesn't matter if it's Canadian, American, or whatever, so long as it is valid.
