Yes, to some extent. The problem, as I've heard it, at Grandma's is that there is such a shortage of rooms that the prices aren't just quite a bit higher but outrageously higher. When I ran Chicago, I paid about a $50/night premium for a downtown hotel overlooking Grant Park. The price I paid for what I considered a luxury hotel room was less than $50 more than what people are apparently paying to stay in a dorm room at UMD for Grandma's. Essentially, in Duluth, people are paying big city luxury hotel prices and well over the normal Duluth bed and breakfast price to stay in a college dorm. I wouldn't be surprised if some people would balk at those prices given the lack of amenities while they wouldn't at similar prices for much greater amenities elsewhere.
