Sounds like a good price to me. I’ve paid that much for hotels in smaller cities.

At major or boutique hotels that sounds right for the DFW area, if not actually a little cheap.  In OKC we had rooms for 2 at $99 and rooms for 4 at $150 at a downtown Sheraton (and that was the block discount rate).

It depends on what type of hotel, what day of the week and what type of room. Prices vary greatly based on these things even within the same city.

Without looking at your actual post, I was thinking $300 (for a nice room like downtown).  $125 is totally reasonable.  If it was under $100 I actually might think it was sketchy.

That actually sounds really good to me as a weekend rate at a Sheraton!

okay, so this is a really nerdy way to answer your question, but hopefully helpful–i used to travel a lot for work and we had to make sure our hotel expenses came in at or under the government per diem rate since we often were on government contracts. the gov’t rate is generally lower than what a hotel would cost at normal, market value. for ft worth it says the gov’t rate is $138, so it sounds like you got a really good deal 🙂

Sounds right to me! Average price here in Philly for a block is $200.

I used to work for a hotel in Baltimore, and it was usually anywhere from $149-$229, depending on what’s going on that night.  If you’re concerned about the rate, don’t be afraid to try to negotiate!  You might get further than you think!  My wedding is in a rinky-dink town in PA, and my guests are still paying $94 per night for a Courtyard Marriott there…

Did you ask for a better price for your room block? Ours was also at a Sheraton on a Saturday, (and not in a major city)and I negotiated for a $20. decrease in the price per room. The price you got is still a lot less than our rooms from ’09!
