London price hikes during Olympics

I'd like to gather opinion on this one - is it fair that my regular rate is hiked up 3-4 times for the 4 weeks of the Olympic games?

 

I stay at a London Marriott hotel for probably 45 weeks of the year, and have done for a number of years.  I cannot afford to pay this rate for work purposes, so I will have to stay somewhere else.  Is it right for Marriott to cash in on events like this at the expense of regular and loyal customers?

 

Apparently as a Platinum Premier member I have "guaranteed availability", which is fine, as long as I am willing to pay an exorbitant rate.
