$184 for the Boston area actually seems very reasonable to me.

@busyinboston:  I ran into this in DC. I found that the hotel I wanted to block cost $99 a night on Kayak, but they were charging $150 for a room block! What we did was recommend 3 hotels in the area and have people book directly. I was honesty about why on my website and people seemed to be really happy to save money. I am seeing a lot of good deals for that area on Kayak, so you might want to consider it.


When my good friend got married, his wife booked $175 a night hotel. I looked on Kayak for their city, booked a $110 a night room, and all of my friends joined me. I almost always book directly now (even when there is a room block, I will book directly at that hotel if it is cheaper).

Yeah I’m having my wedding in upstate NY, and the cheapest I could find was $128/night, and that’s at a shitty Holiday Inn Express… lol. $184 sounds like a good price for the Boston area. 🙂
