4* Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach 5/24-5/30 $180

Resort fees are prevalent in certain zones. Keep in mind that some hotels charge excessive resort fees which you may be unable to dispute as Priceline now states on their website that these fees are your responsibility.

You cannot specify the guest rating unless you purchase an Express Deal where the rating is displayed. Please post your final decision after your purchase. Your limit is too high for a 4*. Please post 4.5* rates. Your limit will likely need to be a lot higher.

Please place your Priceline/Hotwire bids/purchases through the link in my signature or by clicking the Priceline/Hotwire banners on the right side of the screen. And please keep Priceline in mind for your conventional travel bookings as well.

Thanks for your response!
If I search for all 4* hotels in Waikiki area with specific dates, will the result gives me a comprehensive list of hotels that I will possibly get in the bid?

Can I also request a help identifying the 4* Express Deal in Waikiki Beach area?
1) Oahu, HI
2) 5/24-5/30, 2014
3) guest rating:8.0 (or higher)
Displayed Amenities:Free Internet in public areas, Indoor or Outdoor Pool, Restaurant, Business Center, Fitness Center
Rate: $171/night, 6 nights total: $1,203.42
4) Yes
5) Yes

On the bottom of the OAHU HOTEL LIST it says that this hotel may be Outrigger Reef (4*, 8.5 rating, lowest rate $219 from the hotel website), if it is, would you recommend me to book it through Express Deal or bidding?

Thanks so much!

You can get any hotel with the rating you choose or higher. Priceline is an opaque product. I'll ask tilepusher to identify this hotel for you.

Before tilepusher identifies this, please clarify (as the form specifically states), that you will NOT be bidding if we identify the Express Deal for you. We are very serious about our rules. We don't modify them.

Thanks for reminding me of that rule.

Before I decide to use the Express Deal, may I ask how much approximately I will need to bid a 4*?
Thanks.

You said when bidding, it had to be a hotel with an 8 rating and that cannot be guaranteed but likely 10%-15% less than the Express Deal.

Thank you for posting your bid. Why did you bid higher than the Express Deal rate?
