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.

Ft 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.

Go here for winning bids and more. Because I knew hotels in each star category and winning bids on Priceline, I bid and got the wonderful Marriot for only $55 in Lisbon last month!

I won the Hawaii Prince Hotel w/a bid of $150.00 - Not cheap, but better than booking thru any other site.

Been bidding for a while on this. This time priceline offered a counter of $22 when I reached $100. Declined offer and bid $110 and was accepted.

Just got Westin Bayshore for September 6th, for $90. First attempt.

This was my first ever time using Priceline and now I wonder if I could have got it for less.

I am very excited and very pleased.

Just booked the Crowne Plaza in San Pedro, CA with a bid of $65.00 for December. Will take PrimeTime Shuttle from LAX to hotel for $32.00 for two people. Expect to take free shuttle from hotel to pier the next day. This sure beats $219.00 for hotel package. Asked for 3 star hotel in San Pedro. First time we ever did this-a little scary but soooo worthwhile. Good luck!!
Anyone on the NCL Star to Mexican Riviera on Dec. 8??

I got the Hilton Long Beach today for two rooms on 11/11/06
for $196.48. This includes taxes and fees. The bid was $82.00
per room. This sure beats the price of $189.00 + taxes per night
per room the Hilton website quotes.

I've really got the hang of it now. We got Westin LAX for Dec 17 for $60.00. Bid $50.00 first and that was refused. Best price I got for the hotel was $159.00 using AARP before I put in the bid. With taxes total is $76.12.

Hi, I stayed at the Hilton Long Beach back in Oct 2005. It was nice...
more of a "business type" rather than a "resort" but they do have a
nice bar downstairs
