    Looks like the ChiCom Hotels ain't doing so well...

    Plenty of hotel rooms are still available for the Beijing Olympics.

    The director of Beijing's Tourism Bureau, Zhang Huiguang, says the crunch that was predicted doesn't seem to be happening.

    She said that about 500,000 foreigners were expected for the Games, a figure Beijing officials have long been predicting.

    She said only 77 percent of capacity at Beijing's five-star hotels have been booked during the Aug. 8-24 Olympic Games, and the four-star hotel rate is only 44 percent. And it's even lower for three- and two-stars.
    I wonder what a 2 Star is like there??? :D

    Wouldn't want to find out. Maybe people are afraid that they're building those new hotels like they built the schools that collapsed during the earthquake.
