Large hotel chains and online retailers face price-fixing suit

Plaintiffs claim hotels and sites that sell rooms conspired to set minimum prices

Hotel chains such as Hilton Worldwide Inc. and online retailers such as Expedia Inc. are facing accusations of antitrust violations.

According to two plaintiffs, several large hotel chains and websites that sell hotel rooms conspired to set minimum prices on rooms to compete with small online retailers that sold rooms more cheaply. The suit, filed yesterday in California federal court, seeks class action status.
