Default Priceline question

We are a group of 4 flying into Miami from Ohio in Sept. 08. We will be flying in on Sat. to sail on Sunday. I was just on priceline and made a bid of $50.00 for a 4 star hotel in downtown Miami area. Does anyone know what hotel this might be and should I go ahead and book?

Thanks so much for your help!

I'm thinking you could get anything. Your only in it for one night so might as well get the best price that you can.

Lostinohio,
I just tried to book a 4-star downtown Miami for $120.00 for August ,and I was declined. :o I started at $75.00 and have been increasing on every attempt. :o

I'm about ready just to book the Hyatt for $169.00 and be done with it.
If I got this right, a 4-star would be- Hyatt, or Intercontintal hotel.

Kuki - If I'm not right, help me out. (Kuki- is the king of Priceline )

Best of luck on your booking;

Happy Sailing to all ;
David

I just got the Royal Palm in Miami Beach on Priceline for $100. ($118. with fees). I'm not sure if this is a good deal (Kuki?) but it is listed as 3-4*. At least it is just for one night so we will "roll with the punches" if we need to. I was rejected for a bid of $50. and $60. so if you get one for $50 you are probably ahead of the game.
