Super Bowl Hotel Rates Rising Nearly Tenfold In N.Y., New Jersey

Data from CheapHotels.org showed that while many hotels in New Jersey and N.Y. have “jacked up their rates" the week of the Super Bowl in February, "none has done more so than the Howard Johnson Inn, whose 857 percent increase over its normal rate is the highest in the area,” according to Jeff Goldman of the Newark STAR-LEDGER. That increase is “far more excessive than another lodging just east of the stadium -- the Holiday Inn Express North Bergen, which is raising its rates from $127 to $902.” CheapHotels.org data showed that the Econo Lodge in Jersey City, which normally charges $100 per night, “wants $700 a night Super Bowl week.” The site noted that there are “still hotels in Manhattan offering rooms for less than $200 per night” (NJ.com, 11/19).
