Hi,

I'm from Austria and this will be my first time using priceline to book a hotel in key west. My husband and I have been in Key West two years ago (we booked via hotwire - that was simple) and stayed at the Sheraton Suites and one night at the Hyatt. 
I read a lot about priceline but I didn't understand what's the best way to book. Therefore I'm here...I hope that you can help me. We are searching for a nice beachfront hotel (but neither Casa Marina nor "The Reach").

1. Key West 

2. old town (Sheraton Suites in new town is also ok)

3. 05/07/2014

4. 05/11/2014

5. 3

6. minimum 4 (except Sheraton Suites: 3.5)

7. Express deal: maximum were 3 1/2* for 198$ per night (new town)

Casa Marina 439
Westin  434
The Reach 379

8. Priceline

9. Getaway to the KEys
Key Largo
Key West New Town
Marathon
Marathon Key Colony Beach


3.5* (only for Sheraton Suites): 
Marathon
Marathon Key Colony Beach
Getaway to the Keys

10. 200$

11. yes
12.yes
13.yes


Thank you very much for you effort.

I would recommend that you start at $160 and raise $10 per free re-bid. Key West is a very difficult location to bid on Priceline.

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.

You can bid again tomorrow. It's doubtful you'll be successful anyway. As to 3.5*, you cannot put any restrictions on your bid so I don't understand what you mean by mentioning the Sheraton Suites. Be sure to read the introductory comments on the Hotel List.

Please continue to bid through our link to Priceline and do not bid through a Priceline email.

What are your plans now? Are you going to continue to bid every few weeks?
