I have always shook my head and said to myself who the hell would pay over $400 per night for a hotel room? Well, I've become one of those people. We just returned from Spring Training and we stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn in Old Town Scottsdale. I understand supply and demand and the hotel was walking distance to Scottsdale Stadium, the Spring Training home of the SF Giants. It was filled with Giants fans and conference people. I got the feeling we were the only ones paying full freight. Everybody else had coupons for food and drink. Nice hotel with pool & workout area, decent bar with a great happy hour. King bed with fridge & microwave, but OMG, I never imagined I would pay that much for a hotel room. $1,800 for four nights with taxes. We have paid in other cities, but never that much. But, I haven't paid for a room in Vegas in over 30 years and it is sticker shock. I know others are going to pipe in about how much they have paid, but still a shocker to me and the fact that I even booked it. We used to stay at the Travelodge on 5th St (now closed) and that was fine. Just your basic motel. I guess just less for the nieces & nephews to inherit, no kids. After saving all our lives, we are definitely in the spend mode. Vegas in 3 weeks, then San Diego, then Portland ME. Vegas again in Oct, Nov & Dec.
