I stayed at a courtyard in Lloyd District in Portland via Priceline, and it was actually two one night stays (the original win + an extended stay). Apparently, when you bid, the hotel assigns a specific room type up on Priceline. So in my case, for my original stay, I had 1 King, but for my 2nd night, the system had me in 2 Queens, which would have meant I would have had to move. Of course, the clerk changed it so I could keep my King and not move rooms, but in many cases they are stuck with what they have. If they had been sold out of Kings I would have had to leave my stuff at the desk until i could check in later. Also, if you book at the last minute, you may be given a room choice. I stayed at the Marriott in Portland (not a courtyard) and I got a choice between 2Q and 1K. I left it up to the hotel to decide, as I was traveling alone. Case in point, each hotel operates differently (even different brands in the same chain).
