April 9 - April 17 (Spring Break)

$95. per night

Very excited, especially considering we got this under $100 during the spring break.
This is exactly when we will be there and the hotel we would prefer (we know no guarantees). Do you mind is I ask what criteria you put in? Great deal!


Thanks!

It's a great location for Universal, so I'm happy with it1

Room Cost (avg. per room, per night): $39.00 (USD)
Number of Rooms: 1
Number of Nights: 10
Room Subtotal: $390.00 (USD)
Taxes and Fees: $63.55 (USD)
Total Room Cost: $453.55 (USD)

Hi All,

Not sure if it has been mentioned but Biddingfortravel.com keeps a record of bidding acceptances and rejections on their site.....They also offer strategies for "Re-bidding"

I've saved thousands of $$$ and stayed in 4 Star resorts across the USA utilizing the strategies I learned on the site.

I apologize if this has been mentioned before...Didn't read the 12 page thread.

Hello,

A couple days ago I bid on Priceline. First bid was $50 for a 4 star, then $51 for a 3 1/2 star all within downtown disney. Then I added Kissimmee as well, and upped the bid to $65 and got the Hotel Royal Plaza for April 11 - 16th.

I am trying to book a 1 night stay in the airport MCO area through Priceline for end of April but have not been successfull sofar. Tried weeks already but
no success.
Am I too early ??
I have read betterbidding and biddingfortravel but there is not really an answer to when one should start bidding for a room.
Some seem to have success month before and others just days before.
Now I want to keep trying in the coming weeks but in case I don't have any success is it still OK to book through the normal sites closer to the end of april ?? Or will I risk the fact that most hotels would be all booked up ???
Anyone experience with booking airport hotels ???

Try Hotwire! I plugged in 1 night near the end of April (just to try it out, I plugged in 4/24), and 5 hotels came up- price range from mid $40's up to mid $70's. Star levels from 2 to 4. All listed as Orlando Intl Airport MCO.

Got this through Hotwire last week:

Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites Orlando-Orange County Convention Center
8214 Universal Boulevard
3*
Pool, fitness center, high-speed Internet access
4/4/09-4/8/09
$47 a night

Was looking for something not too far from Sea World, since that's where we'll be most of the time. Wasn't the hotel I thought I might get, but TripAdvisor reviews look promising -- nothing fancy, but clean, good location and good people.
