I won this hotel for $89.  My credit card had a hold for $422.32.  When it was charged, it went through for $409.88.  I checked and found that my offer price was reduced to $85.89.  I think this may be the hospitality fees.  Hotel fee $82.44 - $12.44 credit = $70, which would be $17.50/night for hospitality fees (parking, internet).  Priceline used to show the full amount with hotel fees when a bid was won, but not charge for those fees, as they're paid at the hotel.  I still think the fees are not charged; however, this is a strange way they are doing this, and weird to get a credit.  Happy to get lower though!
Offer price:$89.00/night
Adjusted room price (bid) with Hotel Fee Credit: $85.89/night

Number of rooms:1 room
Number of nights:4 nights

Room subtotal:$356.00
Taxes & fees:$66.32
Hotel fee credit:- $12.44
Total charged today:$409.88

The hotel fee shown ($82.44) is still charged by the hotel when you check out. You received a credit because this amount was higher than the estimated hotel fee that was shown on the review page of your bid (Priceline guarantees that you won't be charged more than the total shown on that page).
