Hotel rooms scarce for Harley-Davidson's 110th anniversary celebration


MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker has invited Harley-Davidson riders from China to attend the company’s 110th anniversary in Milwaukee during the Labor Day Weekend.

But the question is whether they could find a place to stay.

The Journal Sentinel says hotel rooms are already scarce – and homeowners are placing ads to rent part of their humble abodes.

Some arrangements are far from cheap. A Pewaukee homeowner advertised on Craigslist that up 30 tents can be pitched on two acres of property – with a going rate of $100 a night for the privilege of sleeping on the ground.

Brent Foerester of Visit Milwaukee says the pickings will remain slim, even as people cancel reservations. Rooms that were $200 a night a few months ago are higher now.

The Iron Horse Hotel has the most exquisite week-long package, at a cost of $9,900 for two people. That includes a deluxe room plus tickets to all the Harley anniversary events.

Over 100,000 visitors are expected for it. Walker issued his invitation to Chinese bikers Tuesday, when he helped open a Harley dealership in Tianjin. It was part of his 10 day trade mission to China.
