Is it cheaper to book rooms on Tuesday?

I'm asking about the actual booking, not the dates I'm staying.

I know that with airfares, the deals come out on Tuesday and Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday are the most expensive days to book a flight. Over the years I've saved a few bucks knowing this.

Is the same for booking hotel rooms? I could book today(Sunday) and be on budget, but should I wait a couple of days?

Thanks in advance.

Why not just book today? If the rate goes down, cancel and rebook.

I don't think it has anything to do with Tuesdays. It's more due to yield management on the property: for example this year bookings vs the previous years for same month/day, events taking place, conventions, etc. Hotels will adjust daily rates to yield the best revenue.

Asmy date to go to Vegas got closer the room category I wanted at the Caesars dropped in price. From the time I started looking to the time I booked the total amount dropped by $200.00. This was in a 3 week span of time.

Hope this helps.

Actually from my personal experience,including yesterday [Sat] I got the cheapest airfare even compared to the Tues fable.I've checked fares on the past 5 Tuesdays and never saw any discounted rates.Also, I booked travel on a Sat [9/22] which was cheaper by $100 than any other day of the week..

I never heard anything about cheaper booking on a specific day of the week.I do know that if you have a casino host etc there is no difference.

If you're booking directly with the hotel and its a rate you're happy with go ahead and book it now. Then keep checking and if the rate goes down just call and get the lower rate.

right there

I have heard of that theory applying to flights not hotels.
