Female travelers beware of Priceline.
Priceline - Name Your Price Hotel - Complaint
If you are a female traveler, who may travel alone for business or personal, beware of using Priceline's "Name your Price" option. I recently booked a hotel for San Francisco through Priceline. After bidding, I received confirmation of a hotel. Usually, this is a good thing, however, this time, I was confirmed in a hotel that had reviews from several websites, including TripAdvisor, that this hotel was in a seedy location, surrounded by homeless people, criminal activity and people defecating around the premises.
After reading all these reviews I promptly called Priceline to help change this hotel. I explained I was a female, traveling alone, and this location seemed to pose a danger to any tourist. Upon several emails and phone calls, basically, Priceline could care less about the safety of their customers. I would NOT recommend using Priceline to any traveler, especially, female travelers.
