Bidding Assistance: 4.5* Kauai Poipu 11/21 - 11/28

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.

I reconfirm what I said about Hotwire vs. Priceline. You are just bidding too much lower than Hotwire's price which is definitely too high based on retail. Yes, I would absolutely try again in about a week. Keep monitoring Express Deals. You may have to shorten your stay and pay retail for some nights or try the extend stay feature but not before the last minute (since you get only one opportunity to try it).

Express deal price is now down to $214, and Hotwire price is down to $195 today. Retail is still at $299.
I tried bidding up to $185 on priceline, but no luck yet. I'll try again in 2-3 days.

Priceline will accept 5%-10% less than the Express Deal. I would bid again tomorrow. Please continue to bid through our link to Priceline and do not bid through a Priceline email.

I suspect you're within $2-$5 of an acceptable bid.

You certainly are patient. That's the way to use Priceline.

Actually the hotwire price has dropped to $190 for my dates, so I'm hoping Priceline will follow suit soon - I tried up to $190 today unsuccessfully. Express deal is still at $214.

If you're confident the Hotwire 4.5* hotel is also a 4.5* on Priceline, I would go ahead and purchase it. I will tell you, however, whenever anyone thinks Hotwire has something that Priceline doesn't, they are virtually always disappointed in the outcome.

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.

I'm currently getting $199 for a 4.5* from Hotwire and nothing from Priceline.
