Default Priceline-Marriott Biscayne Bay-Miami

Sailing on 2/22. Friends coming in from all over and staying at the Marriott Biscayne Bay.

If I were to bid on Priceline, what area is the Marriott Biscayne Bay located in? Is this a hotel priceline uses?

What Hotels are located near the Marriott Biscayne Bay hotel that anyone has gotten through bids?

Any idea how much I should bid to try to get the Marriott Bisacayne Bay - how many stars is this hotel on Priceline, does anyone know?

Thanks for any assistance you can give. We have had excellent results booking all our pre-cruise reservations through Priceline. I hope our results will be as good this time.

Suggestions will be appreciated. Have to book quickly, time is getting close - two months and counting.

If you bid Priceline in Miami downtown zone, 3 star, at the moment it seems you'll get the Hyatt, Radisson, or Marriott.
No way of knowing for sure. All three are in close proximity to the port,, and located fairly close to each other.

I used Priceline today for the first time. Bid $35.00 for Downtown Miami pre-cruise and got the Hyatt. We are cruising in April. I am happy. Checked on their website and the rooms for that time frame are $215.00!

Recently there have been some reports from those booking through Hotwire and Priceline about good space opening up.

People have said they were able to get $82 for the Renaissance (Priceline 4*) and $70 for the Sheraton Yankee Clipper (Hotwire 3.5*).

Also, don't forget to sign up for the hotels frequent guest programs. Show your card at check-in and you may just be pleasantly surprised! While there may be notices everywhere that says hotel programs are not applicable to PL/HW bookings, I recently stayed at the Sheraton in d/t Miami and was upgraded to a corner balcony on the Starwood floor, just by showing my card at check-in. It never hurts
