>You act as if $500+ a night is reasonable...
double bed. I know because I've stayed at many on business. For $510, you get
three private bedrooms, a kitchen, living room, dinning room, laundry, yard, etc.
Not to mention free phone calls, and much better TV reception.
Granted there are many people overpricing their homes/condos/apts, but you can
find reasonable rates.
