    Well... with priceline.. you don't know what you get.
    That is all in the priceline game... if you have particular preference
    for a particular hotel or resort then maybe you should not use priceline at all.

    The only thing you can choose is the area (zone) and how many star a property is. I have sofar bid for 3 stars and most hotels I get are OK but I
    never get a hotel that I want to have. Sometimes I think I will get a certain
    hotel (based on successes of others) but I always end up with something very different. Now I always use priceline for 1 or 2 day stay so it's not a big deal if I get something I don't really like.

    If you don't mind which hotel you end up with then priceline is a great site
    to get good priced hotels.

    Yep, I thought so too. But when I posted a winning bid (for the second time without using their link) they banned me from the site! Very nasty moderator. So use the site for your own purposes, but you're better off not posting it seems. Betterbidding.com is much more friendly, I used their link for bidding.

    Royal Plaza In Walt Disney World Resort 3 1/2 *. 4 nights...6/15-6/19 $55 per night... $38.65 in Taxes for a total of $258.65. Not bad. I'm happy. Has mixed reveiws on Tripadvisor but you have to remember, most people that bother with a reveiw are not the happy ones. As long as there are no roaches crawling on me I'm happy:thumbsup2

    The "Witch" would rather not have data on her site. (She was banned from the DIS for her behavior on here)

    I am quite happy with this price; we are arriving very late and needed a place to stay for one night before checking into the Royal pacific in Universal. This fits the bill right across the street...especially for $41 tax inclusive :cool1:

    Wanted to add one more night to my stay (I posted earlier that we got the Omni Orlando Resort at Championsgate for $89).

    Just got Gaylord Palms - a resort category - on 4/23 for $89/night. It looks great. I've never been, but we can't wait to check it out.

    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.

    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!

    The lowest I've seen on biddingfortravel.com for Gaylord Palms is $81 this past winter.

    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. :thumbsup2
