Market forces dictate prices, so there individuals willing to pay those prices. If you got the money, why not? For me, I would hedge paying those prices, although have paid $1,500 for suite and $450 for and adjoining room at the Ritz-Carlton at Dana Point, California to entertain a dear friend from Japan, because he desired and experienced a stay at a high-end hotel with an ocean view in the USA.

Just ignore holidays or make alternative dates for them and then go on the off times to avoid being scalped or gouged.

Nothing like being stuck in a Kihei or Lahaina traffic jam, although I've read that Honolulu traffic is a craziness all of it's own.
