Pricelined a hotel room in Detroit for a few weekends from now for a friend and my wife. Friend tells us that we can try priceline, but they would prefer a certain hotel. I tell them we will end up in no less than a 3* place. I win the bid and we don't get the hotel the friend wants. Now they tell us they don't want the room and they went out of the way to book a 2.5* place without telling us leaving us in the dry for $150. Not a lot of money, but still a friend shouldn't stick another friend like that. Heck we were trying to be nice saving them some cash. Instead they pay $98 a night with tax.

We are at this place: http://www.radisson.com/livoniami

Friend is here: http://detroitlivonia.place.hyatt.com/hyat...place/index.jsp

Am I wrong here or do I have a right to be angry? If I should be angry what should I do to get even with this loser?

I'm not putting any ideas in your head, but Keerock lives around there and he is a very effective enforcer...

After the guy told you to book a certain place, and you refused, what did he say? If he said, "fine," you should punch him in the face. If he said, "No, don't bother," then you're the ### hole.

Priceline doesn't work like that. We made a bid and it gave us the Radisson. Friend wanted Hyatt Place which was a possibility. We told them we had secured two rooms at the Radisson and they told us sorry about that but you will be have to find someone else to use that room. Then they booked the Hyatt.

i know how priceline works, but it's not the only gig in town. if a friend asks you to take them out for sushi, i wouldn't think you would roll to mcdonald's and tell them to order a filet-o-fish, cuz it's fish. if a friend asks you to book a specific place, priceline should also not be an option. are you william shatner's nephew or something? why so hell bent on using priceline?

Kinda crappy of your friend, but both of you should have communicated better on the front end.

They wanted the Hyatt, you wanted to convince them you could save money and get somewhere rated just as good as the Hyatt.

I'm not understanding how many people are on this trip and how many rooms you were trying to book. So did they come out better financially on their deal or not?

I can tell you what you DON'T do. Don't let this fester and pull some kind of passive-agressive woman crap where you bring this up 6 months later. Either:

1) Swallow it. It's not worth losing the friendship. Eat it and admit that maybe you both messed up a bit and yeah, you got screwed, but it happens and get over it.

2) Sit down and talk to the guy. The women will make this worse, so don't get them talking. YOU and your buddy talk. He'll either get angry or get defensive or get passive-agressive, pay you and think of you as a (rhymes with woosh) for a long time. - Or some other far less likely alternative.

These are the only two choices you have if you're any kind of man. Honestly, I'd say choose #1 and make the best of it. It WILL ruin a vacation and you'll end up p'ing away even MORE money on a vacation where you'll both be miserable. But, if you can't let it go - and I mean COMPLETELY - you AND your wife, then have the cajones to sit down and talk to the guy.

I always use priceline. I save tons of money using it. I usually can get a Courtyard by the Marriott going for $129 a night plus tax for $75 a night after taxes. Seems stupid to me not to use priceline...

no they are spending $250 for 2 nights at the Hyatt when they could stay at the Radisson for $175 and no tax. They booked the Hyatt knowing they were spending more and leaving me hanging with two rooms as well. I think it is a **** move.

Now that we finally have a clearer picture...these aren't real friends. Certainly not ones worth keeping.

If you were my friend, even if I didn't like the hotel, I would have sucked it up and just accepted the room.

Only a real couple of losers would INTENTIONALLY STIFF YOU for the extra rooms you booked, at a cheaper rate no less.

Only way he can make amends is if your friend lets you bone his wife in the extra hotel room you booked.

Here's what I do. I make a reservation for 4 at a really swanky restaurant. Do the surf and turf, order a bottle of wine, get a couple of apps. Get dessert.

Before ordering dessert, sneak off to go take a leak and call a cab. Come back, eat dessert and then act like you have to take a phone call and step away from the table. While you do that have your wife head like she's going to the bathroom and both of you head back to the hotel in the cab and leave them with the bill.

When they ask WTF, say, "we decided we didn't like that restaurant and wanted to go home and that you will have to find someone else to pay the rest of the bill. Sorry for the short notice."

I don't know how the pre-purchase conversation went down, but they could easily write, "He booked with priceline knowing I only wanted to stay at the Hyatt beforehand and he wants me to stay at the Radisson. I think this is a **** move" based on the lack of information we have. If your friend agreed to gamble on priceline and is stiffing you because it didn't turn out the way he wanted, he's a jerk. If you went ahead and booked with priceline even after your friend told you that he was only open to staying at the Hyatt, you're the one being unreasonable.

They told you they wanted to stay at the radisson.

You told them I can save you $ by using priceline. No radisson guarntee though.

They said???

If they said "ok" then they should pony up the $

It sounds like you pushed the priceline on them, and they didn't stand up and say radisson or no go.

Fault-both of you

You for not knowing your friend well enough and ramming prioceline down there throat

Them for not saying radisson or no deal

Your friend is a jerk, but those Hyatt Place's are pretty cool. I stayed in one in Cincinnati night before last and was pretty impressed with the concept and the room.

Okay, this is just a lack of communication on both sides, but he said he wanted a certain place and you booked somewhere else, so I don't believe he owes you anything.

Turn this into a positive. Use this as an opportunity to take your wife out for a romantic evening. Take her somewhere special for dinner and then have a nice bottle of wine or whatever waiting in the room. Order breakfast in bed. Make lemonade out of lemons here and score points with the wife while you are at it.
