A survey conducted by our correspondent in Abuja on Tuesday, May 17, 2022, revealed that most of the hotels in the Federal Capital Territory have been booked,

Visiting the major 5-star hotels in the FCT, Pulse gathered that Transcorp Hilton Hotels, Maitama, now costs N243,000 per day against its average price, N107,000 for small rooms. 

Also at Sheraton Hotel, the average price for small rooms,

which used to be N70,000 is now pegged at N120,000 when our correspondent reached an agent to book a room.

Some of the hotels in the Utako and Wuse axis which share proximity to the ruling party’s secretariat located on Blantyre Street in the Wuse 2 district and that of the PDP’s National Secretariat, Wadata Plaza, Wuse Zone 5, have no room left for booking.

It is also observed that the 3-star hotels in Abuja metropolis that cost an average of N15,000 have now been increased to N25,000 and N30,000.
