FWIW the Crowne Plaza web site lists rooms for Thursday though Saturday  
night of Dayton at $165.00 plus tax. This is up from $153.67 for one week  
Don't know if you can actually make a reservation that way.
About 10 years ago I pissed off at CP Dayton, and have stayed at cheaper  
places up north. This year we stayed right across from the airport for  
$50/night plus tax for a double. Not fancy, and you have to drive back after the  
suites, but certainly cost effective.

This is a 70% increase

I  thought that $125 a night for the average rooms & service that we get is 
a  bit high... but $209?

The DoubleTree 2 blocks away is just as nice and  under $100 a night

I bet that if enough people call the Crowne directly  and voice an opinion 
and threaten to go elsewhere, they might have a change of  heart.  I'm 
currently in email contact with the marketing manager...  probably gonna talk to 
him tomorrow.
