Best hotel prices month by month, destination by destination


Best hotel prices swing almost 50 percent based on the month of travel


best hotel pricesMany travelers already have their sights set on where to go in 2018. Booking.com, has created a “best hotel prices” calendar for the coming year to help travelers of all budgets find the best value-for-money at major North American destinations for each month of the year. The calendar shows the big changes in hotel costs across North America based on the time of travel.

Some overall accommodation prices can vary by almost 50 percent based on the month of travel to various North American cities. That kind of change in best hotel prices can make an amazing difference in the cost of a vacation.

To form these recommendations, Booking.com first looked at the average price per night of 3, 4 and 5-star accommodations in the most popular global cities. Then, to determine which cities to recommend for which month, they looked at the yearly overview of pricing fluctuations to determine the best weeks to stay in the selected destinations*.

The differences can be dramatic based on what month travelers plan to visit different cities. Price swings range from almost 40 percent to 15-20 percent depending on the month of destination visit. That means a New Orleans or Las Vegas $200-a-night hotel in the most expensive month might only cost around $110 in the lowest priced month. The change in the price of lodging is dramatic in many destinations.
