Hotels in the U.S. - additional information
The monthly average daily rate of hotels in the United States increased annually for the last six years. Each year, the month with the highest average daily rate was either July or October, which indicates the peak travel times. In 2016, the average daily rate of U.S. hotels was 123.97 U.S. dollars for the full year, increasing by over 45 dollars in the 15 years since 2001. Like the U.S., the wider region of the Americas has experienced a period of general growth, becoming the second most expensive region in the world in 2016.
The average daily hotel rates of some U.S. cities soar well above the national average. Among the most expensive cities are San Francisco, New York and Boston. According to TripAdvisor, the average cost of staying in a four star hotel in San Francisco was more than 380 U.S. dollars per night. Despite the cost, some of these cities are still counted within the most visited cities in the U.S. In 2015, 12.3 million international arrivals visited the city of New York.
In terms of hotel brands, Holiday Inn Express was the most common, with almost two thousand properties across the states in 2015. Hampton Inn, of Hilton, and Super 8, of Wyndham Worldwide, also had a high number of properties. According to a national survey by market research company Nielsen Scarborough, 29.24 million Americans had spent a night in a Best Western hotel in the past years as of spring 2017.
