Share Article

San Francisco, Boston and, of course, New York are the most expensive cities for budget travelers, according to a recent report from Cheaphotels.org.

In its first Budget Hotel Report, Cheaphotels.org compared hotel rates for 2- and 2.5-star hotels in the 30 most visited U.S. cities in the month of August. As expected, New York City ranked number one for the most expensive average nightly rate of $147, while Boston came in second at $130. And, San Francisco rounded out the top three with $125 per night.

Following is a Top 10 list of the most expensive budget lodging cities.

1. New York                 $147
2. Boston                     $130
3. San Francisco         $125
4. Washington, D.C.     $107
5. San Diego                $106
6. Seattle                     $105
7. Philadelphia             $101
8. Baltimore                 $96
9. Los Angeles             $ 93
10. Chicago                 $92

In addition, Cheaphotels.org compared hotel rates in popular neighborhoods of six top tourist cities. These findings revealed significant pricing differences. For example, in New York’s Times Square area, budget hotels averaged $225 a night while Long Island’s budget hotels averaged only $135. In L.A., budget hotels in ritzy Santa Monica and Marina del Rey averaged $175 while L.A.’s Downtown district offered rates of only $90 a night. In Chicago, you can stay in a budget hotel near the Chicago O’Hare Airport for only $80 a night, but if you book a budget hotel room on The Loop, it will cost you $134.
