Bidding Assistance 4 1/2* Waikiki Marina 1/16-1/19

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.

Are you asking for a bidding strategy or posting a winning bid (the title)? I'm confused. You cannot bid for a specific hote.

Based on the Express Deal rate, your limit is too low. You can expect a winning bid of 5%-10% less than the Express Deal rate. What is your backup plan for these high season dates?

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.

Just tried 189, 193, 199 and all faied.

I think I should reconsider the maximum budget

or look for 4* hotels as a backup plan both in Marina and Waikiki beach area.
