Hotels sun28 aug 2013 why so expensive ?

Was hoping to stay in San Fran on sun 28 aug to wed 31 but hotels seem particularly expensive compared to other weekends. Does anybody know why ?

That's before the holiday weekend so not sure why those hotels are so expensive.

There is a large convention going on at this time, "VMWorld 2013;" expected to have ~20,000 attendees. (it actually runs 8/26 - 8/29.)

While it's likely that many of these attendees are local to the Bay Area, it's also pretty certain that a good number of them will travel to SF from elsewhere (and some of those from the Bay Area may choose to stay in the city to avoid commuting).

As an FYI one of the Top Questions includes a link to a convention calendar where you can find out this sort of thing. It's certainly worth checking out if you want to avoid the spikes in hotel demand and get cheaper rates.

Suggest one read the Top Questions on any forum before posting. That can help you with the Convention Calendar, where to stay, list of budget hotel and what to see and do in SF.

The first two posts on this SF forum have the top 10 questions to get you going
