Priceline Hotel Bidding

When bidding for a room, can you specify that you would like ocean view, ocean front as well as 1 bed or 2 beds? I guess I am asking if you are able to specify your wishes as to the type of room you get.

We booked our hotel in Maui via Priceline and if I remember correctly you tell them how many people will be in your party and from that I suppose they determine how many beds you need. It was only two of us so no big deal. I doubt they would try to put 4 of you in one bed! lol

You can't specify the type of view you want though. We got ocean view at the Sheraton when we originally won but that may have just been luck? It seems like I have read on here where some got the mountain view room from a Priceline bid.

I believe that it is only hotwire where you can specify the number of people in the room. Priceline is different and you can be out of luck if there is a need for more than 1 bed. Read up on both before you start bidding for a room.

You cannot specify any room placement or beds on Priceline. You get the lowest price room available when you check in. I have always been able to get 2 doubles or 1 king etc. once I won the bid and confirmed with the hotel. Sometimes I"ve been upgraded to better rooms if available.
