In the News: Hotels.com launches 2010 Hotel Price Index

Now, I’ve only used hotels.com once before [to book our hotel in Rome, which, if you’ll remember, we ended up LOVING], so I’m not an expert, but I think I would tentatively recommend it to friends.

Anyway, Hotels.com has just launched its 2010 Hotel Price Index, a bi-annual report from the site that reveals average hotel prices in major cities around the world based on actual Hotels.com customer bookings. The first report, just released, shows that “global hotel prices are rising; nevertheless, prices are still low.”

Other information included:

Cities that saw average prices drop this year:
Tampa, FL—down 11%
Sacramento, CA—down 4%
Seattle, WA—down 1%

Other cities where prices were still low included Chicago, Orlando, Honolulu and, internationally, Freeport in the Bahamas, Dublin and Madrid.

Check out the full findings here.

Bis bald, friends!
