Hi Rich,

At double the price they only have to sell 1/2 the rooms with 1/2 the house 
cleaning expenses to come out on top.  IMHO you and others are going to have 
to turn more than 50% to another location to get their attention.  They 
consider it a "captive audience", and that a certain percentage of people 
will just shrug their shoulders, and pay out the nose.

I have seen this in a number of situations, in particular airline tickets to 
certain cities when there is a LAAAAARGE convention being held.  They look 
at the scenario in the light I presented above, and then anything over and 
above that is gravy and they are way ahead.

Mis dos centavos.

Milt, N5IA
