A a very high profile hotelier friend sent me an article just now from Hotel News Now. As his email interjected, I sit here agape and slack jawed at the prospect the US hotel industry could go down the chute.

According to Trivago Hotel Price Index, this May, Finland (157 euros, up 37 percent), Romania (92 euros, up 28 percent) and Sweden (178, up 26 percent) are among the countries with the greatest price increases in Europe.
Spring period comes with price increases for many European hotels, which is normal considering that March kicks off a fresh travel season.
