US Hotel Rates Expected to Rise

TripAdvisor, in its latest Trip Advisor Industry Index, found that U.S. hoteliers expect pricier rates for the fall travel season. Nearly half (47 percent) expect rates to go up higher this year compared to the same time last year, while only 16 percent expect comparatively lower rates

I just experienced the first round of rate hikes as nightly prices on a couple of motor coach groups increased by 15%.

Fortunately I had already made the bookings so the old rate was locked in!

Make you hotel reservations before this increase! Make any reservations before they increase.
