Sticker Shock!  How much would you pay for a hotel?

We were thinking about going to an upcoming New Orleans Saints game if we could buy reasonably priced tickets on NFL Exchange (Saints tickets are sold out); however, when I checked out hotel prices, I was flabbergasted!  Not only were several hotels sold out, but the prices of those remaining were unusually high--Ritz Carlton-$549; New Orleans Marriott-$899, and Residence Inn New Orleans Downtown-$699--+ tax.  I can't find any other "special event" happening in The Big Easy that week-end.

 

The most I have ever paid for a hotel was $212+tax for the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans a couple of years ago.  We have stayed at hotels in Europe on points that would have been in the $400-$800 range.  I would never even consider paying that much for a room, no matter what was going on.  It wasn't too long ago that I hesitated when the rate was over $100.  Now, I just briefly hesitate when it is over $150.  But, $500+.....No way.

 

My questions are WHAT IS THE MOST YOU HAVE EVER PAID FOR A HOTEL?  WHERE WAS IT LOCATED?   WAS IT FOR A SPECIAL EVENT?  WOULD YOU DO IT AGAIN?
