Some friends from Shanghai asked me to make hotel  reservations during the Olympic games.
                The prices were so high.
Maybe the chinese should have cheaper prices in the hotels.We can not pay so expensive hotels.      

What do you think?                           Why so expensive..

During the month of August all hotels in Beijing are occupied 100%. There are still some rooms available but at a premium price. Afaik during this time there is nothing available at a decent room rate. In 4 or 5 star hotels rates at USD 750 plus per night are the norm.

Olympic games are a bonanza for hotels. This is nothing extraordinary. It was the case in Athens, Sydney and elsewhere

supply and demand

That is because someone is willing to pay that price. I bet people will try to sell their hotel space during the games. I got a great plan too and it's free. It's call television.
