Embassy Suites has not come up on Priceline for quite awhile. If anyone has any contrary information I would love to hear it.

The most common hotels that have come up recently are:

Downtown: FLL
4* Renaissance
3* Marriott Marina
2.5* Amerisuites

FLL Harbor Beach
4* Hyatt Regency Pier 66

I would try a 3* in the Downtown FLL at around $70 and see if you get the Marriott. You could end up with the Embassy Suites. I think the hotels and Priceline have become wise. The days of getting Amerisuites for $25 seem to be long gone.

You can also take a look at biddingfortravel.com to get an idea on some strategies and more information.

Take care,
Mike

I think the reason Embassy Suites hasn't been coming on Priceline recently is the many of the cruise lines are using it in their pre and post cruise packages.

Likely those contracts have reduced the need for them to give room packages to Priceline to sell.

Kuki, We tried using the info in your article for November and we had to go up to $85 and then down to a 3* and got the Bahia Mar Beach Resort for our post-cruise. Couldn't get anything for pre-cruise at that price. Maybe because its Thanksgiving weekend. No Marriott or Hyatt for us. It's only 1 night. We decided to play safe and used our Govt rate for precruise and got the Hyatt for $107. Embassy, also our favorite, was full for both dates.

We got the Hyatt Regency during spring break for our post cruise. We booked through Priceline; I forgot how much we paid for one night, but it was way cheaper than the rack rate. The downside about booking the Hyatt Regency is that they don't have shuttle service from the airport to the hotel, and vice versa, but its close proximity to the PeopleMover, which takes you to the Bayside Marketplace for free, was a big plus.

Just remember that I am on a budget.. Thanks to all of you who have been nice enough to post and help, I really do appreciate it!!!!
