San Francisco Hotels Ripping Off Stranded Travelers?
Thousands of flights were postponed or cancelled following the tragedy, leaving many travelers stranded in the city. Apparently, the sudden surge in demand for hotels led many establishments to up their prices – in some instances, dramatically so.
According to an NBC News report, mid-range hotels in San Francisco (which typically charge around $100-200 per night) were listing their rooms for ten times the usual rate. One example included a Best Western hotel, which had bumped its sticker price from $149 to a whopping $999 for a one-night stay.
NBC found many other hotels in the city were also charging significantly above the usual tariff.
We want to know, have you seen or been asked to pay an exorbitant price for a San Francisco hotel room following the plane crash?
