New Year's Eve in Nashville among nation's priciest

Which cities in America will set you back the most when you open your wallet or purse for a New Year's Eve crash pad?

With a nightly rate of $365 for the least expensive room, Miami Beach emerged top of the rankings as the most expensive in accommodation for the last night of the year.New Orleans is the second most expensive destination in the world for overnight accommodation this coming New Year's Eve, according to a survey by

And Nashville completes the podium positions, with rates of $304 and $284, respectively, for the most affordable room.

The survey compared hotel rates in 50 major cities globally. For each destination, the price for the cheapest available double room for a 3-night stay from 30 December-2 January was recorded. Only centrally-located hotels rated at least three stars and with generally positive guest reviews were taken into account.

Cancun is the priciest non-US city with a rate of $228 per night, ranking it 5th overall. The Scottish capital of Edinburgh ($221) in the UK is the most expensive "European" destination, while Rio de Janeiro ($206) in Brazil came out as the priciest city in Latin America.

The survey results also highlight how the Covid-19 pandemic is still impacting significantly on hotel prices globally. For example, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and Sydney, Australia, both of which were among the most expensive destinations for New Year’s Eve accommodation, pre-pandemic, back in 2019, rates are between 40-50% lower this year.

In Hong Kong, which has largely restricted incoming tourism to try to stop the spread of coronavirus, prices are down even more, by up to a startling 70%.
