Nashville Voted Most Expensive Urban Destination to Visit

October 28, 2016 1:21 am

Ever wondered where the priciest city spot in the U.S. is? Surprisingly, the answer isn't New York or Los Angeles, but Nashville. A recent CheapHotels.org survey found the southern city to be the most expensive in the country, based on the cost of its lodging.  

The survey compared hotel rates of the 30 most populous U.S. destinations during the month of October. That month reflects the timeframe during which most U.S. cities reach their highest average hotel rates.

At an average price tag of $261 for its most affordable room, the capital of the U.S. state of Tennessee leads the rankings. It has to be noted that only hotels rated at least 3 stars and centrally located have been considered by the survey.

Only slightly less expensive is Boston, Massachusetts. At an average rate of $257 per night, it ranks second most expensive on the survey. Washington, D.C. completes the Top 3 podium at an average overnight cost of $192. 

At the opposite end of the spectrum, another Tennessee city, Memphis, ranks among the rather affordable destinations at an average rate of $142 per night for its least expensive double room. By far the cheapest destination is Las Vegas, Nevada, where an overnight visitor can find a room for around $60 per night.

Below are the 10 most expensive urban destinations in the United States. The prices shown reflect the average rate for each city's cheapest available double room (minimum 3-star hotel) for the period spanning October 1 through October 31, 2016.

1. Nashville - $261 
2. Boston - $257
3. Washington, D.C. - $192
4. San Francisco - $187
5. Portland - $185
6. New York City - $184
7. Phoenix - $182
7. Austin - $182
9. Chicago - $178
10. Houston - $176
