We've gotten emails from several folks who have seen (or been quoted) lower rates for the Maron Hotel. That rate was most likely for a standard room, not a suite. All the rooms in the WestConn block are suites or king suites. The regular price for suites/king suites is quite a bit higher. You are certainly free to book a less expensive room if you'd like.
So.....if you'd like a suite for a discounted price, ask for one of the WestConn rooms.......if not, just ask for (or search on) a standard room. Don't forget, you always have the option to split a suite with a fellow student, which would bring your total stay down from $89 per night to $44.50 per night.
