and you didn't know the SB venue nor date of the game long before this when inventory was available throughout the city???????? just proves the old adage that those who wait lose, or in this case, pay thru the nose.......

What's amazing is that while the room rate is jacked up 10 times the normal rate at the Ritz... but parking is a real bargain at $40... wonder why that's not marked up to $400 night? Guess it wouldn't look good. I wonder if anyone actually books these rooms at those rates?
