Really? To fly me on the day before and return me the day after (7th-9th) to somewhere else in the States costs between 600-700 depending on destination. In a quick search, I just found a hotel and flight package to London for the same days for 980, just 300 more and that includes hotel for two nights as well.
It doesn't seem that pricey to me.
