NEW ORLEANS – New Orleans is the most expensive destination in the world for hotel stays over this year’s New Year’s Eve period, a new survey has revealed.

The survey by TravelMag.com compared accommodation rates across 60 major global cities. For each destination, the price for the most affordable available double room for a 3-night stay from December 30 to January 2 was recorded. Only hotels with a central location and rated three stars or more were considered.

Compared to regular rates during the month of January, travellers will have to spend a massive 182% more for overnight stays in New Orleans.

Only slightly more affordable are Miami Beach and New York City, which complete the podium with rates of $1184 and $1164, respectively, for 3-night stays. Syndey and Rio de Janeiro came out as the most expensive non-US destinations, with minimum rates of $1089 and $1087, respectively.

Out of the 10 US cities considered by the survey, Boston and Chicago are the most affordable at around $500 for a 3-night stay. The least expensive destinations in the world to spend New Year’s Eve are Hanoi and Phnom Penh, where you should find a room for below $40 per night in both cities.
