You need to take into account the savings over TWO days.

CC
Savings from Discounted Registration: \$100
Savings per day if implementing ROB:
The savings would then be: \$110 - \$70 = \$40 for one day
The saving for two days would be: \$80

So even if this person were to shift to outside the block, he or she would still lose \$20 in savings from the discount registration.

Sanity Check:
Total Cost With Discount Registration: \$620 + (2 * \$110) = \$840
Total Cost With ROB Strategy: \$720 + (2 * 70) = \$860

Same process of analysis for the other hotels..

What would be even better, is if you post the solution to HMHPA. You can use my previous post as a template. You'll benefit more by doing this than by simply reading my solution.

HMHPA

Savings from Discounted Registration: \$25
Savings per day if implementing ROB:
The savings would then be: \$104 - \$79 = \$25 for one day
The saving for two days would be: \$50

A study has shown that if this registration discount is equal to at least half the potential savings of an attendee's particular cost-saving strategy, the attendee is much more likely to reserve a room within the block.

half of \$50= \$25 which is equal to Savings from Discounted Registration .

So it is No for HMHPA . Am I not correct ?

Your logic is sound but read the question once again. It is asking whether a person would spend less by using the ROB. The answer is yes, because \$50>\$25.

Now lets change the question.

Is an HMHPA attendee likely to stay in the block or to use the ROB?
Then the answer would be: the attendee would most likely stay in the block because the registration discount is equal to at least half the potential savings in the ROB strategy.

So basically, the question is simply asking which number is greater, not about the likelihood of an attendee staying within the block. Hope this makes sense!
