I have been reading Peter Earley's Super Casino and I have found it fascinating. The one thing that shocked was the prices of hotel rooms in Las Vegas in the early 1970s. He mentioned that the going rate was over $60 on the Strip. Circus Circus, however, began to change the pricing dynamics. One could book a room for $18 per night. Now, Circus Circus was going to a certain degree after a different segment of the market but it is pretty amazing to think that the price of rooms haven't changed much in 40 years. I realize that supply and demand factor into the calculus but basically, outside of luxury hotels, one can find a room for the same price today as you could in the 1970s.
