$5000 A NIGHT!! Mike Tyson fight BOOSTS hotels rates

Herenton says he intends to talk with fight promoters to help ensure they don't gouge customers. Nikita Flynn, public relations manager at The Peabody downtown, said the hotel received some inquiries regarding prices Friday afternoon in the wake of Herenton's meeting but said the hotel is confident its fight-time rates are fair. "The rates may appear more expensive than our regular room rates," she said, but that stems from special fight packages offering a variety of amenities. A double-occupancy room at The Peabody normally ranges from $225 to $1,675 a night. One fight package carries a $5,000-a-night price. The package includes two tickets to the fight at $1,200 each, flowers, a bottle of Dom Perignon and specially engraved Lewis-Tyson signature wine glasses. "There are probably some businesses that are price gouging but our prices are justified," Flynn said
