Narendra Somani, president of Hotel & Restaurant Association of Gujarat (HRAG), was quoted by Financial Express saying, “Tariffs would shoot up in coming days for February 23 and 24 as there is an unprecedented rush for booking on the dates. Prices of suit rooms would go even higher as there is a limited number of such rooms. Such rooms are being booked for celebrities, industrialists and top leaders,”

Even bookings in ordinary hotels would be difficult to book a room in the twin cities as people will start searching for rooms using online platforms the moment the dates of the mega event are finalised. "We have kept a few rooms reserve for an emergency also for February 23rd and 24th,” said Rajesh Sinha, business head of The Blues Hotel.
