I placed a "bid" (offer) through priceline for a hotel in South Beach, Miami. I got "acceptance" for a hotel called "Whitelaw".
I arrived to the hotel late at night and was informed that an additional $15 per night would be charged over and above what I paid through priceline. I did not agree and said that I will take the matter with priceline which did not inform me at the time of making the offer or when I accepted it; nor do they let one retract their bid once there is "acceptance" on one's offer. The extra $15 are not a resort fee but a fee of "let's rip off a customer" type.
Priceline rather than refund that money and take it with hotel which missrepresented the facts at the time they accepted the bid, is supporting the hotel and hidding behind a "resort-fee" clause in their contract. Shame on them for cooperating with those scam artists.
Monetary Loss: $30.
