Hotel rates, 7/19-21

Anybody know what the deal is with hotel rates in the city this weekend?

I could fly to Paris stay the weekend for less than the cost of hotels this weekend.....

It's always busy in the summer, and there are a couple of good sized conventions (10K and 25K), plus the Pitchfork Music Festival west of downtown.

It's supply vs demand - not gouging.

Even it's busiest time, unless they are only selling a Presidential, no one sells over 1,000.00.
