Summary of winning bids on Priceline


Recommended Posts

It was suggested by Kelnac that we list our winning bids at hotels. We could list them wih dates and areas. I pasted some answers from another thread so we could start out with summaries from any winning bid from any port.:D





icon1.gifFt Lauderdale Priceline "Winning Bids"

Hi Everyone,


I thought it may be nice to start a Priceline, Hotwire, or Easyclick winning bid thread. If everyone lists the hotels they are picking up it may be helpful to others.


We could use this format??


Date: December 31, 2006 (New Years)

Number of nights: 1 (post cruise)

Hotel: Westin Fort Lauderdale

Rating: 4 star

Area: Ft Lauderdale north

Site: Priceline

Winning Bid: $95

Taxes & Service Fees: $19.17


Maybe every so often we could but together a summary page of dates and winning bids. If this works well we could have a thread for each cruise port.








I think it's a great idea.

Downtown Tampa

Residence Inn Marriott


2 1/2 *

bid last week

Wasn't really expecting to get it just kind of checking it out and SURPRISE!

Even has a full size refridge, free beer and wine reception on the Thursday night, and shuttle to port. Can't beat that.

Got to love priceline.

Thanks everyone for posting your winning bids. It is most helpful. I have been waiting 6 days to see a posting on Bidding for Travel for the city I'm looking at.

I got 3 rooms for 11/23 - 11/26 at the Residence Inn, 2 1/2*, Tampa downtown for $65 each day per room. This hotel has great reviews. All the rooms have a kitchenette and your stay comes with a free extended breakfast. It's a $6 cab ride to the port.


Being a Priceline junky, this is the best deal for Tampa if you want to be in the downtown area & not Westshore (Westshore is closer to the airport). Priceline does offer hotels that are 3* in the downtown area but unfortunately there are not that many winning bids. I think maybe because this is a cruise port, they don't have as much problem filling the hotels as other major cities might.


Happy Bidding!

i am considering in doing this price line thing....did they allow you to park your vehicle at the hotel for free, and did they provide free shuttle service to the pier?


If anyone else has sailed out of Galveston and used this PriceLine deal....please email me so i can become a informed member....this is all new to me! thanks....
