I was just looking at the top three hotels on TA today - and thought their prices looked a little unlikely.
As such, I checked the hotels' websites for their rack rates at peak season just to compare. TomTom Suites for example, which TA show an average cost of €559/night, was showing a deluxe suite at €190/night! A massive difference - and one that is likely to put visitors off pursuing bookings any further. In fact, it shows the Four Seasons as being cheaper (and the cheapest I could find a room there for with breakfast was €550)!
At the other end of the scale, TA shows the Sebnem Hotel as averaging €57 - but for a double room at the same period as I searched for TomTom Suites, the rack rate is starting from €90.
Anyone know where these figures come from? They are just so misleading to people using TA to help decide on hotels!
