I'm staying in a friend's room next weekend but did a quick check to see how much rooms would be in case I wanted to get my own. No thanks. With the Stones in town, the debate, etc and everyone has money again, 5* rooms are going for over $600 a night and even some 3 and 4* are pushing $300. I These rates are the highest I have ever seen, except for the chutzpah-breaking weekend of Dec. 31, 1999 / Jan 1 2000 when hotels were asking so much money (wouldn't it be fun to have people pay $2000 a night to celebrate the year 2000?) that everyone just decided to stay home.
