    Best Western's in the US are generally gross hotels....
    I'll only stay at Best Western's in Asia where they are pretty good (stayed in one in Shinjuku and in Seoul).

    And the area where Giants Stadium is.... that area is not the nicest area for hotels... West Orange, no thank you.

    West Orange and the Meadowlands arent even close. I have to call you out on this.

    To go back on topic, why in the world would a BW ever be at that price point even with a worldwide special event?

    sorry must be confusing with one of the other Oranges.... That area of NJ near meadowlands is not known as the best. Sorry for any confusion.

    In my opinion I can't think of a worse place to have a super bowl than Giant's Stadium. and that's coming from some one who was born and raised in NJ. Location and traffic wise, that area is horrible.

    Yep. Check out hotel rates for racetracks when NASCAR comes to town. The hotels charge this much because they know people will pay. If people wouldn't pay, they wouldn't charge that much. Simple.

    You're thinking of some other area. The oranges are south and west of the meadowlands. The area around the meadowlands was a big swamp with light industrial. When the stadium was constructed, hotels were built in the area. The area east going toward Hoboken and Weehawken have added nice hotels int he area, although non a BW.

    The meadowlands is a mess on regular game days, this is only going to be worse. At least now there is a direct rail access.

    It's sad to think about, but someone will pay it, thus justifying the rate increase. Then next year other hotels in the area will do the same.

    If someone is able and willing to pay, why is that sad?

    That's the whole idea. That's how a capitalist, free market economy works.

    I used to go to a trade show around the Meadowlands. I never saw any place worth more than $140 a night.

    If anyone needs reasonable hotel rooms for the game, I have three booked. I can't make it this year and I would be happy to add someone else's name to the reservation. You won't get any points, but the hotel rate is very cheap for Superbowl. Send me a pm if interested.

    You know the old "service industry" saying, "If you've got it, abuse it." :D

    When I use to live in Richmond people always said that many of the hotels near the racetrack made their years during the two race weeks. They basically could just shut the doors the rest of the year.
