The Palace Hotel is offering a discount

Some hotels around the Bay Area showed their capitalistic spirit by reportedly increasing hotel rates up to five times the average in response to the Asiana plane crash on Saturday.

According to NBC Bay Area, those hotels were caught charging $1,200 for rooms that normally would cost $200 a night.

The San Francisco Travel Association took notice of this reported greed and decided to capitalize on the public relations nightmare, offering discount rates at five city hotels for those affected by the crash of Asiana flight 214.

Passengers whose flights were delayed or cancelled can book discounted rooms until Thursday at the Fairmont, Laurel Inn, Palace Hotel, the Radisson at Fisherman's Wharf, and the Warwick hotel. Rates range from $129 to $209. Guest may have to show proof that their flight was cancelled or a relationship to a passenger.

A "more than 100% discount"!? Are they actually paying you to stay there, or does someone need to go back to grade school and relearn their arithmetic?
