5* The Gray Milano Duomo 2/7-2/9 $288/nt

This forum should only be used when Hotwire was able to beat Priceline for a comparable hotel since Hotwire's ratings do not always correlate with Priceline's ratings. Posts that do not meet this criteria will be removed.

This is one of those rare cases when Hotwire has a hotel that Priceline does not (for now). I bid up to $325 in the Old Town/Duomo area with no success. There was a Priceline Express Deal for a 5* at $428 for Friday and Saturday that disappeared and now only shows Saturday available. I have no idea what the hotel was but the vacation package is showing the Four Seasons and the Boscolo hotel. Boscolo is at approx. $404 so I don't think it was that hotel but who knows! Anyways I am looking forward to this new spot, seems very nice. I used the Hotwire link:)

Thank you for using our link to Hotwire. How do you know that Priceline doesn't have this hotel rated 5*?

I don't, however all I can surmise is that the room rate now is 280 euros or $380. I bid to$325 which would leave a $55 discount per night if it was accepted which it wasn't. So that's where I drew my conclusion. Also I read many places and also experienced myself that "Priceline almost always has the lower rate". So if the hotel is available it's rate is higher than Priceline, at least in this instance. We will see if it comes up in the future:)

I now agree with you as when I checked the Express Deal earlier today for a 5* which this hotel is rated by Priceline (I checked the retail listings also), the Express Deal was over $600.
