Average Hotel Room in New York Costs $350
Yikes. No wonder New York is the self-professed city that never sleeps: At an average of $350 a night in a hotel room, who can afford any shut-eye?
That figure spiked $50 in May from a year ago, according to figures released this week by the official marketing and tourism organization for the Big Apple. And even though 90 percent of all those spendy rooms were filled (that's some 2.05 million rooms), we're still betting the $99 rooms at the Jane Hotel couldn't come any quicker for travelers en route to New York.
