Renaissance - Ft. Lauderdale PLANTATION, not DOWNTOWN

 

4* @ $57 per night - April 9 - 11, 2010 (Total $114.00 + $21.72 = $135.72)

 

Bid 3* Downtown - $55 - rejected

Bid 3* Plantation - $57 - accepted and UPGRADED to 4* Renaissance

 

Not too shabby:D

 

We actually prefer Plantation pre-cruise so that we can spend a day at Sawgrass Mills (and no parking fees at the hotels generally, as compared to Downtown). Our TA cruise leaves from Miami, but we don't mind the short drive from Ft. Lauderdale -- and our departure is a Sunday = less traffic.

Stayed at this hotel last Dec and it was wonderful. So many things nearby and easy to get to the ship with car. We will definitely stay there again when sailing from FLL.

Got the Admiral Fall Inn in Baltimore on 12/11/09. A Priceline 3* bid of $50 (I started at $46 and did two free rebids), total of $71 with fees. The hotel is in the Fells Point area near Little Italy so it should be good for pre-cruise dining and exploration.

 

The high fees are because according to the Admiral Fell website there is a $10 fee in addition to the room rate. As far as I can tell, this is one of the extra fees that Priceline says a bidder might be subject to. I'll let everyone know in December if that's true with this fee.

Marriott Biscayne Bay Hotel And Marina in downtown Miami for $90/night + $5 insurance + taxes for a total = $115.12. Noticed on travelocity the rooms start at $219/night. So, this appears to be a good deal. :)

I see a $99 rate for what I think is the Hilton Marina on 2/27/10 on Hotwire in FLL. Is it ok to post Hotwire info here, or ask for help ?? If not where is the acceptable place. If so...does anyone think this is a good price ?? Should I wait til it gets closer?? $99 for end of February seems good ...but??????:confused: not sure. HELP !!!!!

Hi mrgoalie,

 

Yes, I think it is the Hilton Ft Lauderdale Marina. It's the only 4 star in that zone so you should be okay. This is a busy time of the year and the prices are pretty expensive, so I think this is a "fair" price. Maybe you could do better on Priceline, but not by much.

This hotel was completely redone a couple of years ago, so it should be nice. Of course, it's across the street from the port and a short walk up the 17th street bridge to watch all the ships.

 

If it were me, I would go for it.:)

PS -- you might want to repost this over on the Florida board. (this is the general east coast board, not including Florida)

We just stayed at the Miami Hilton (downtown) - priceline $57 + tax. Previously stayed at Hyatt, which was also good. Had read some mediocre/bad reviews on here, but we enjoyed the hotel - nice room, loved the rooftop pool area. Happy Hour reduced price drinks...what more could we want?? We asked for port view room, so could see the ships lined up. Not much in the area, but we found a liquor store and pharmacy for supplies. Burger King & Checkers across the street. Hotel restaurant was good but pricey , but aren't they all? We are a couple of young 50 year olds, and we will stay there again.

Marriott and Hilton group properties seem to show up rather frequently on Priceline while Holiday Inn properties seem to only show up on Hotwire.

 

We picked up the Residence Inn in Miramar FL when we wanted to spend a couple days closer to the Keys before a cruise out of Port Everglades. The all in cost was $147 for two nights.

Hooked on bidding...always been satisfied with the results so far.

 

Good luck!
