Is it fair to raise the rates 3x from week to week?

I'm a 20 year Marriott Rewards member and have two upcoming trips to Las Vegas in May.  I booked the first week at the Cosmopolitan on the strip at a rate of $150 a night.  I went to book the second week, which is exactly one week later and the rate is $470 a night.

I called the hotel to ask why and was told that they were busy that week and that all hotels raise their rates when they are busy.


Personally I consider this price gouging and is something I would never do to my customers.

What do you think?
