The most expensive spring destinations in the United States

Poipu, Hawaii.

In Poipu, the survey revealed that visitors will have to spend $397 on average per night for the most affordable double room.

The resort town of Poipu, located on the southern side of the Hawaiian island of Kauai, is the United States' most expensive spring destination, according to a survey by Cheaphotels.org.

The survey compared hotel rates in destinations across America during May 2022. Only hotels rated 3 stars or more and located close to a beach or city/town center were included in the survey.

In Poipu, the survey revealed that visitors will have to spend $397 on average per night for the most affordable double room. The port city of Charleston, SC ranks as the second most expensive destination, with average rates of $374 per night, while another Hawaii island town, Wailea, completes the podium with average prices of $354 per night.

Compared to spring 2021, rates have increased significantly across the board, with these hikes seen particularly starkly in Hawaii, where travelers can expect to pay up to 75% more this spring. However, the biggest increase is reserved for Charleston and Boston, where rates are more than double what they were a year ago.

Key West, the priciest destination in 2021, now ranks as only the 5th most expensive this year at $340 per night. The most expensive destination in California is the small city of Calistoga, where visitors can expect to pay nightly rates of $335 this spring.
