A new survey comparing average hotel rates across 50 cities puts San Antonio at the bottom of its list this year, but in this case, being at the bottom of the list is a good thing for travelers. Results of a survey by Cheaphotels.org, a subsidiary of Booking.com, ranked hotel rates in 50 cities from most expensive to least expensive in 2022.

The survey placed Alamo City 50th with an average hotel rate of $107, claiming it to be the cheapest among the 50 cities on the list after Omaha, Nebraska with a rate of $109. San Antonio’s neighboring city to the north, Austin, didn’t fare as well, ranking second with an average hotel rate of $255 just below Boston at $262.

Dallas came in 10th with an average hotel rate of $198. On average, in the 50 cities surveyed, hotel rates have increased by around 30%. Hotel prices surveyed by Cheaphotels.org in centrally located hotels of three stars or higher were considered for the survey. The hospitality industry has been hit hard over the past few years amid the COVID-19 pandemic when people were ordered to stay indoors.

More luxury hotels are now popping up around San Antonio, but the Express-News reported in June 2020 that it would take years to restore the industry.
