These rates are for The Saint Hotel in New Orleans in December 2014.
I have been tracking New Orleans rooms in December for my 2014 trip and this appears to be the local properties' way of placing a default price into the box 330-350 days out, until they are ready to set a price (they have been going down). They also have room restrictions (for a while you could not book more than one room/I need 3/ at the JW or Marriott on Canal). Several of the properties were listed in the mid-teen thousands when the 12/20-27 nights first went up.
December (as few better than razorbackfan knows) around Christmas is a great week for rates in New Orleans with the JW last year around $100, the Marriott on Canal less than $90, SpringHill $79 and the very nice Marriott at the Convention Center (which I know about thru razorback's write up) around $104 - so I'll just out wait them, they do go down, but it does make it harder to match up with airline awards available soon.
Initially seeing the Residence Inn listed at $79 and then viewing the rates go up to $899 for each night the rest of the week irritated me, but then I realized it was just another example of "no blackout guarantees with blackouts" , no service fees unless there's a service fee, points credited unless they're not, etc etc. The way of the traveler 2014 and beyond.
