Nice one Marriott. Increasing pricing to $2067 for 2 nights while the event is on. It’s not that I can't afford it, I won't pay extortionate rates. 


Wow, that’s crazy. Luckily there are a number of much more affordable hotels in the vicinity and parking is ample at the convention center for those that visit during the day. 

I stayed at the Hyatt this year when I went and even used award points and it was fine. They even had the shuttle buses that take you to the event. I'm with you and usually like to stay at the show's Host hotel but these prices are just crazy!

Maybe I should Airbnb my house for $5000 per night

during Axpona.  Will consider Audio note gear in partial trade. Hope no one is offended that I didn’t run an official Audiigon advertisement for this!

If you are referring Axpona   2023 in Illinois? Plenty of hotel near the venue. Iam local so I know the area.Lots of good restaurant as well in that area.

@jayctoy Yeah, I know. In 2019, I stayed in the one a good walk/short cab ride away but it was a drag compared to being in the hotel. So I promised the next time, I’d stay in the mothership. Not to be, unfortunately thanks to Marriot greed.

Fail to see a real problem.

@celtic66 That is some link. Anyhow, it’s meaningless because it’s not for the dates of the show. In fact,, show you must now stay 7 nights to qualify for their largesse.
