Why are Pesach Hotels so Expensive?

Trudging in the snow, it’s time for many orthodox Jews to celebrate their alleged holiday of freedom by parting with about $4000 per family member for some fancy Pesach hotel.  (Do the math: including the flights, rental car, etc.) The experience is unlike anything Moses had in mind when he instructed the children of Israel to celebrate the holiday once they cross the Jordan River.

I guess he was thinking that they’d simply remember the old days, tell some great stories, and share some BBQ with what seems to be a stale pita. Fast forward to 2011 and you have the Pesach hotel experience. The annual ba’al tashchis fest and 9-day long chillul hashemordeal takes place at about a dozen of the fancier hotels in the country.
