my husband and I traveled to Grand Canyon - Bryce - Zion - Death Valley - Vegas at Christmas last year. Now, my parents want to make the same trip in September. We are pretty last minute making reservations, and when I looked online it seems like most hotels close to the parks are either fully booked or extremely expensive (200$ per night for 1 room for two people).
Do you think it is best to wait until more rooms become available? Or will it only get worse? I am wondering whether rooms are maybe "on hold" for travel agencies that sell organized trips and therefore reserve rooms?
Thanks a lot for your help!!
