Unfortunately the Radison Celebration is located in a large hotel zone on Priceline with many other 3* hotels (Priceline has the Radisson as a 3*, Hotwire as a 3-1/2*) that are in that zone with a Priceline history. You can not really pinpoint this hotel on Priceline. You will be taking a chance if you bid on the 3* star hotels in the WDW Zone. If there are other people reporting that they won this hotel around your dates - this may reduce the odds of you getting another hotel rather than the Radisson, but it is still very risky if you want this hotel. Hotwire provides you a lot better way to pinpoint a particular hotel, but ususally at a high price than Priceline. Sometimes for Priceline if the hotel is in small zone with no other hotels of that star rating being reported in that zone, you can pinpoint a hotel - but this is still not a guarantee as star rating of hotels can change or an unreported hotel may now be in that zone with the same star rating.

Just wanted to let you know that we stayed at the Sheraton Four Points a couple of years ago and were very pleased. We stayed for a week and didn't go through PL or HW.... paid over $100/night and we thought it was nice. So I imagine at $31/night you will love it.

I went to biddingfortravel.com and they had Don Cesar on St. Pete Beach listed as a hotel that has been "won" through Priceline before. Anyone ever get this? At what rate?

I just won the Radisson Celebration for $22/night using a $50 Priceline cash bonus for 5 nights in October:

Offer Price Summary
Bonus Cash Per Room, Per Night: $10.00
Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $22.00
Total Offer Price Per Room, Per Night with Bonus: $32.00

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Total Charges to your Credit Card
Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $22.00
Subtotal: $110.00
Taxes & Service Fees: $30.07
Total Charges*: $140.07

Average nightly rate for the time period we wanted was $103/nt through Radisson. So I saved some money but I'm not really happy because they add on a ripoff $11.50/day "resort fee". I would have rather spent an extra $10/day myself on a nicer hotel. But you can say that Priceline is paying most of our resort fee. We've stayed there before so we know what to expect. Oh well, that's how it goes sometimes. Our last visit we got a nice hotel for $21/nt with no resort fee, I guess I was just spoiled

Help with hotwire. Can anyone help me? There is a 4 1/2 star in the Maingate Celebration area. The only 4 1/2 star on better bidding is Gaylord Palms. The hotire hotel is showing 4 1/2 circles on trip advisor but the Gaylord Palms is showing 3 1/2 circles on Trip Advisor. Anyone know what this hotel could be? Thanks!!

My guess is Gaylord Palms or Mona Lisa Suites Hotel. Both are known to appear on hotwire from time to time. Also, there are only 3 4.5 star hotels that fit that description in the area. The Gaylord Palms' customer review is higher now at 4.5 circles versus the 4.0 circles it received as of a month ago. It's still possible that it's Gaylord. If you decide to bid, let us know which one it turns out to be!
