We are cruising out of Tampa on May 25th on the Legend for DH 60th B-Day. Our daughter lives only 30 minutes from the Port but we wanted a special night before the cruise and to be close to the port. Checked out all our choices and knew I wanted down by the Port. My desires were the Grand Hyatt or the Marriot. The total price with taxes was running between $155.00 and $175.00. My first choice was the Grand Hyatt.
Wanting the best price I could get I decided to take my chances and name my price with Priceline. Yesterday I did it for $60.00 and was rejected. You can only bid every 24 hrs unless you are willing to change your location or star rating and I was not. Well, I just did it again for a 4 star hotel for $75.00 and it was accepted and I got the Grand Hyatt for $75.00..........yippee!
Total cost $97.19 including travel insurance. I realize this may put us on the 2nd floor and with a city view instead of a Bay view but I will see what happens when we get there. Maybe they will upgrade us. I paid this much for a room at Quality Inn last month and no perks.
