Long way out, but won the DTD Hilton on Priceline for $85 on 9/19/09. With taxes and fees it comes to $104.03.

I was hoping for the Gaylord Palms or Omni Championsgate again, but we'll take advantage of the ability to use EMH at the Hilton. We move to a 2 br at Kidani on Sunday as part of a 2 birthday celebration and family mini-reunion.

Hotwire - $41 per night 6-11-09 to 6-13-09

This is a hotwire win, not priceline -

Hyatt Place Universal - $41 a night for two nights (6-11-09 to 6-13-09) - $98.65 total with taxes. This was one of the hotels we were looking at so I started on priceline at $35 - no luck so I rebid it up to $39 - no luck there so I decided to go to hotwire because I knew I could get the exact hotel for $43.. but it was gone! Luckily I went back to hotwire about 8 hours later and the price dropped $2 to 41 so we jumped on it!

We got Hyatt Place Convention Center (3*) for May 1-May 3 for $35 on Priceline.

We just needed a place for 2 nights as we wanted to add 2 nights to our vacation.

UPDATE: DH called me on April 30th from work and said he could be home by 2pm.....I packed in 2 hours flat and we added a day to our above win on the priceline site for the same price! We are here now and this is a GREAT place! Free continental breakfast with Starbucks coffee, 2 double beds plus a pull out queen size bed in the "living room" area. Mini fridge and coffee maker in the room.

Then we are staying at Celebrity Resorts 2 bedroom condo through SkyAuction for $199/week including tax.

Priceline

Got the Marriott Orlando World Center for 2 nights @ $88/nt and its a "resort". 5/23/09.Total $208.37. Thats what the website rates were $208/nt!!! I think I did pretty good!

I wish I had waited tho, Mousesavers had a great rate for Gaylord @ $99/nt and no resort fee or parking fee. I probably would have gone with that but I cant wait to leave in 2 days, it doesnt matter where I stay !!

Just got DTD Royal Plaza for $65/night for 7 nights on Priceline, for June 13-20. I tried 50 but it asked me to go 15 higher.

On Hotwire - I got Four Points Sheraton at Studio City, a 3*, for $ 38.00 a night (6/26 - 6/28), a total of $ 92.39. First time using Hotwire (never used Priceline before either). I thought it would be a good time to try, since I will be by myself on this short trip - although neither of us are that picky about hotels. I would have preferred a Holiday Inn Express, Hampton, etc., over this type of hotel, but some of the hotel chains in the 2* or 2-1/2* categories I do not like, so I did not take the chance on getting one I do not like. Overall, I am satisfied with the selection I got - especially for the price. I will just bring a small cooler with me and buy some breakfast items in lieu of a continental breakfast.
