Hotel Discrimination? Rate Gap?
"A lot of women are saying they're not feeling like they're safe when they're traveling to a strange city," a spokesperson told The Grand Rapids Press.
Access to those rooms will come at a $25- to $30-per-night premium over the standard rate of about $229.
Wait a mintue, is that really legal? Not just the part about discrimination against men from staying on the 19th floor, but the part about about discrimination against women for having to pay more than men for basically the same room? Isn't this evidence of a "rate gap" because men are paying only 88% of what women pay?
A spokesman for the Michigan Civil Rights Commission said he was uncertain about the legality of a hotel offering a women-only floor.
