A survey has found that Moscow, Abu Dhabi and New York City have the world’s most expensive hotel rooms.
Even though there was a worldwide decrease in hotel rates in 2009 because of the economic climate, the average cost of a room in Moscow was $420 (£268) a night. It’s the fifth year in a row that the Russian capital has had the dubious honour of topping the list.
Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, was the second-most expensive, with a room costing about $350 (£224) per night on average.
New York City, which is famous for its sky-high luxury hotel rates, came in third with a room costing about $320 (£205) per night, despite most Manhattan hotels lowering their prices last year.
Average room rates in London fell by five per cent to £151 ($236), placing the capital in 29th position on the list.
Of course, with the economic downturn still being felt, it continues to be a buyers’ market, with hotel chains seeking to entice travellers with cut-price deals. Luxique can secure the best possible rates at luxury hotels throughout the world. Check out our unrivalled selection!
