Columbus Day dates?

Back to New York next month *giddy moment* and just wondering when Columbus Day is; how long the public holiday lasts and if that's the reason, or the perennial supply/demand scenario, that hotel rates mid-October seem higher than same time last year?

Time to check out betterbidding :-)

I think Columbus Day is Monday, Ocotber 8th. It only lasts a day and that is probably the reason why the rates have increased since it is a 3 day weekend for some.

It is Monday, Oct 8th this year. The beautiful fall weather also causes this to be popular time of year to visit.
