    Stayed at Radisson - is that the one by Celebration Hospital? I was very happy with the room. wifi worked well, got to DHS within 20 min door to door. Didn't use the pool at all. I typically stay at the Pop and am considering this hotel for my next visit if I can get it through priceline.

    Sheraton Studio City April 1-5th $40. Heading down for a cheap weekend as we won passes to Universal from the Superbowl promotion. Hotel is typically over $100/night and Trip Advisor gives it pretty good/mixed reviews so here:'s hoping it works out! :cool2:

    Omni Resort at ChampionsGate (Priceline "resort" category)

    Just won at $89/night for 4 nights in mid-April. Priceline's price was $215. We've never stayed here, but it looks great.

    This is my first time with Priceline, and I'm concerned about what I'll be charged at check-in. I called the Omni, and she didn't know how it worked with Priceline, but there is a $16 resort fee and tax is 14%. I'll probably try to call back and ask for someone else.

    As an experienced Priceline user, I can tell you that the total that Priceline quoted you is accurate. However, Orlando has some resort fees that are sometimes not included. Remember that even if you had booked the hotel without Priceline, you would still have to pay taxes and resort fees, so this is not a rip-off or anything. Be happy for your Priceline win...enjoy it, and have a great time!

    I too will be staying at this resort May 6-13 for $52.00 a night, with taxes and the resort fee of 11.30 included. Not a bad price for a 3*.

    $ 35.00 Priceline excepted bid
    $ 6.00 Nightly tax
    $ 11.30 Resort Fee
    ---------
    $ 52.34 Total

    Well, you win some, you lose some. I got the Wyndham Orlando International Dr. for $50./night for 3 nights, April 7-10, and it, too, is a dump according to the reviews. I'll never use priceline again, and don't think we'll even go, considering the 7 hour drive. Shoot.

    It's not so bad that I wouldn't go! Really! For that price it's very okay! The room itself has 4-star amenities. There is room service, a business center and pools...things that bring it up to the 3 1/2 star rating. My suggestion would be to ask for a room in one of the center/remodeled buildings.

    If I had reservations at that price I would not hesitate to go and have a great time!

    p.s. Our drive was longer than that. Honestly, if I had reservations, I would so GO, before I'd pay and not get anything. You might be pleasantly surprised. Look closer on Trip Adviser.com. There are some very good reviews there.

    Well, just got back from our stay at the Four Points Sheraton Studio City - got on Priceline for $40 a night. Wouldn't stay again - no refrigerator (big problem with a toddler), lots of high school groups, door lock was broken, pretty dated. Wouldn't stay gain - good thing it was only $40 a night - if I paid $115 (Priceline rate) I would have been really upset!
    I just wished the whole time that I was on property - I guess I have been spoiled by Wilderness Lodge!

    How do you know what resort you are going to get? I don't want to bid and then hate the resort I get. We are going in september and we were going to stay onsite because of free dining but I'm not sure right now.
