Ok, I have done a search and the earliest post I can find is 2007, so here goes and if this has been addressed more recently forgive me.
I have never bid on priceline so have no experience to it. I am looking to get a hotel in Miami, I have stayed at the Holiday Inn Port of Miami and would like a hotel that gives me the same veiws. How would I go about bidding for such a hotel.
At Priceline you can bid on Hotels in two different sections of Southbeach, but neither one will guarantee you a view of the ocean. (I just tried this process, so I know).
If you want that view you must book a specific hotel. Priceline only lets you bid within certain regions (defined by street borders). There are two regions in South Beach, but neither one is just on the water.
I am the editor, but I also speculate, ask questions and play devil's advocate. I reserve the right to change my mind.
