Plaza 500 Hotel Charging $ 7,500 For 6 Night Stay


Recommended Posts

You're looking at several thousand dollars to get a hotel for the Olympics, and that's not even a downtown hotel.

According to Global TV, the Plaza 500 at Cambie and 12th is charging $ 7,500 for a 6 night stay and they're not even downtown.

The same 6 night stay right now this month February at the Plaza 500 is only $ 750. And it's only a basic hotel across from City Hall and a White Spot restaurant and mall.

When that TV crew tried interviewing a manager at the Blue Horizon on Robson about their multi thousand dollar rates, the TV crew was shown the door.

What the F is going on in this screwed up town?

It's called supply and demand....ridiculously high prices are quite normal in any Olympic host city.

Ya and our hotel rates have generally been really cheap here, we are going to New York in May and are looking at $400 a night US for a marriot. I'm betting even at those prices the rooms will fill, if not they will start to come down closer to the games. On the tripadvisor forums people have even talked about staying in Nanaimo and taking the ferry every day and the ferry and/or air fares aren't phasing them.
