I was surprised about cost to attend recent tournaments

I expected hotels in Brooklyn to be very expensive but found nice hotels within walking distance for $150-$200 a night. I was expecting double that. If you traveled by car, hotel parking was outrageous however. I flew in and did not need a car.
Rates for hotels within walking distance in Charlotte were much more expensive that Brooklyn, a big surprise to me. I felt lucky to find an Airbnb for only $200 a night. Most were around $300 and hotels were higher. The good news was that I could take an express bus from the airport to downtown so I did not need a rental car.
Hotels in Greensboro are certainly the cheapest but almost none are within walking distance so I have to rent a car which adds about $40 a day after taxes, etc.
I was very negative about Brooklyn but not as much anymore relative to cost. However, the weather in Brooklyn both years was crap. Sub-zero wind chills at night the first year and a 9" snow storm the second.
