Good call. ISTE 2016 Denver might have something to do with it. The OP picked a bad week to come to Denver. Major conferences do tend to fill up hotels.

I just find this comical myself, how much people will trip over themselves to come to this state.

I usually stay in motels myself because I am not well-off and I prefer no-frills plus motels usually have free WIFI.

I don't stay in motels here but I do check the rates. The rates on motels I pay in San Diego, nice Los Angeles suburbs are a good $20-$30 cheaper then what I would pay here.

I can't understand why people would pay more just mountains when they can have mountains and beach.

It seems as though the rates are Sunday-Thursday are nearly double what they are in Las Vegas and Phoenix.
Oh dear god. It's supply and demand. If the hotels were unable to make money, they would lower the rates.

For what it's worth, Denver has been an in-demand destination for at least the better part of the decade. I worked in the hotel industry (front desk) when I moved here in 2004 and worked in that industry until 2009. The same thing was typical back then. Hotels around the city sold out at high rates for big events and those who failed to make reservations got to sleep in their cars because there were no rooms available. People act like this is some kind of brand new phenomena due to weed. This is what happens when the economy is good in your region. Visitors drop big dollars. It could be worse... 5 star hotels in Greece are going for pennies on the dollar. Oh, the horror... Denver is in demand. The economy is way too strong. The sky is falling!

Thank you for all the comments.

Hats off to Dreaming for AirBnB. I can sleep on someoneís couch for $30 in the Denver apartment complex I just moved from. Yes, there is a 99% chance they are serial killers and cannibals, but I will take my chances to spend a night in Denver.
