  1. Hi there, Just won a PRICELINE EXPRESS deal in Miami Airport West (Doral) for a 3* hotel and this hotel is not yet in the hotel list. Will you please add Hyatt Place Miami to PRICELINE EXPRESS 3* Hotel List? Thanks! 3-Star Express Deal Hotel $77 Miami Airport West - Doral Hotel Amenities: Free Breakfast Free Internet (in Room) Free Parking Pet Allowed Outdoor Pool Shuttle Non-Smoking Fitness Center Restaurant Business Center Guest rating on Priceline for this hotel is 7+ but Tripadvisor has 4 out of 5.
  2. For Sept 1-2, 2018, I did a search and saw that PRICELINE EXPRESS deal showed a 2.5* in Marathon for $126. The description made it sound like the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Marathon. Descriptions were: Free Parking, Free Internet, Free Breakfast Business Center Restaurant Swimming Pool Fitness Center. I did not immediately bought it and wanting to see if I can beat it with PRICELINE's Name Your Own Price. I tried $100 $110 $115 $118 and realized i probably cant save much by bidding. In the end, I bought via PRICELINE EXPRESS and indeed, it was Holiday Inn Express & Suites Marathon. The going rate was $235 at Thank you for providing this forum for users to share their success stories.
  3. I believe you are right thereyouare. Clicking the actual link takes me to a page where it says the offer expired or that I can not buy it. I guess must be some form of priceline malfunction. If it did work, it'd be a fantastic price !! Tks for your help and I'll keep searching !
  4. Thanks for your response AaronJB, I just ran a check again and it looks like the deal is still there. Again, the description is "Free Internet, Business Center, Fitness Center, Non Smoking, Restaurant.." Any idea who this may be? Jeff
  5. Hi all, Wonder if I can get some help with this search. The dates are 4/21 - 4/23/18, I get a Priceline Express deal at Fisherman's Wharf for $113, descriptions are "..Free Internet, Fitness Center, Restaurant, Business Center, Non Smoking, Restaurant." From the Priceline Hotel list on this site, there is only one report of "Holiday Inn Express Fisherman's Wharf," but to me I don't think that could be it.. ANy other ideas?
  6. As this was over 2016 Labor day weekend, prices are quite a big higher than what I've seen posted on the board.. HOTWIRE / PRICELINE were all asking $50+ for midsize for no bidding.. Over the course of 3 days, I bidded: $22 - midsize $23 - standard size $25 midsize $26 standard $27 midsize finally accepted.. Everything included was Rental Car Cost:$108 (4 x $27.00) Taxes & Fees:$48.03 Total Charged:$156.03
  7. I have 6 rebid zones but didn't use them all before I got an offer, I bidded $65 68 70 72 73 and then got the win at $73.
  8. I have 2 days of travel 7/24 - 7/26/15 that I wanted to book. Initially I tried bidding for both days but didn't get anything with a reasonable offer, so I decided to book one day at a time and it worked !! For 7/24/15 and a 3 star in Austin Central, I have 6 rebid zones but didn't use them all before I got an offer, I bidded $60 63 68 and then got the win at $70.
  9. Thanks for your tip Enthus. I agree to check PRICELINE EXPRESS Deals to "zoom in" on the bid price. However, your dates of 9/21-9/22 where Express Deal is only $113, that's truly incredible. Apparently my dates later in the month end up $80 higher on the Express Deal offer =(
  10. I'm very glad for the incredible price for this win over 9/2/13-9/3/13. While randomly browsing on Hotwire, I saw they advertised a "hidden (where the hotel name is not revealed)" deal in the Financial district 4* for $106, surprisingly, at that time 3* hotels costs more than 4* !! I then double-checked Priceline to see what comparable 4* would cost in the Financial district, turned out the cheapest was $179. I then proceeded to bidding in the financial area. Not wanting to pay $106 in the financial area, I started initial bid with $90 on a 3* (knowing more than likely they'll give me 4* since the hotwire "hidden" search shows 4* cheaper than 3* ), and I was immediately awarded with a 4* Hyatt Regency. No second bid needed. Very happy with the result and hope this helps with some of you still searching. Jeff
  11. First attempt at 3.5* for $51 and was accepted for 6/24-6/25/12. Hilton Houston Southwest 6780 Southwest Freeway Houston, TX 77074 winning bid: $51 incl taxes: $66.94
  12. First attempt at $48 for 2 1/2 star in 2.5* Houston (Westchase - Southwest), immediately accepted by Quality Inn & Suites for 6/23/12 - 6/24/12 one night. 2930 West Sam Houston Parkway South, Houston, TX 77042 | 713-785-3899 Winning bid: $48 Total including taxes: $63.39
  13. Won on the 1st attempt - maybe a little too high? I tried a 2 1/2 star for $53 in Westchase - Houston Southwest, was awarded a 3 1/2 star Marriott Houston Westchase at 2900 Briarpark Drive, Houston, TX 77042 Total after tax : $69.29
  14. I did some research on this forum and looks like people have been paying $55-65 for 3 - 3 1/2 * for a hotel in PHL zone. My 1st attempt for a 3 1/2* tried $50. I was given opportunity to "up $14" for another chance, I didn't take the bait and added a 3* to the zone and tried $53 and was accepted. Used the PRICELINE Link to start my bidding. Details: Check-In Date: Fri, Jul 3, 2009 / After 03:00 PM Check-Out Date: Sat, Jul 4, 2009 / 12:00 PM Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $53.00 Subtotal: $53.00 Taxes & Service Fees: $15.43 Total Charges*: $68.43 Happy Bidding
  15. I saw an earlier post of someone getting a successful bid for 2* Boston (Brighton-Brookline) Best Western Terrace Inn, $48 ... 7/1/09-7/3/09 Since I wanted to stay in Brookline as well, and since it's 7/4 long weekend, I figured I upped the first bid a few dollars to $55. It took Priceline a long time, maybe 10 min, before the screen finally refreshes and says that I won the bid. Was successful upon the 1st bid. I guess could've been a few dollars less =) Details: Check-In Date: Sat, Jul 4, 2009 / After 03:00 PM Check-Out Date: Mon, Jul 6, 2009 / 11:00 AM Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $55.00 Subtotal: $110.00 Taxes & Service Fees: $22.27 Total Charges*: $132.27 Happy Bidding! :)
