"Spring Break is here, and even though travel prices are generally up over last year, there are still plenty of spots offering fantastic deals during this peak season," said Clem Bason, President of the Hotwire Group. "We're seeing popular warm weather destinations in places like Florida offer fantastic value. This is a great time to take advantage of locales where prices have typically been much higher."
Over 1.8 million hotel rooms go unsold across North America every night, and for over 10 years, Hotwire has worked with hotels, airlines and car rental companies to fill this unsold inventory. As a result, Hotwire offers travelers amazing deals, every day of the year, across a variety of markets. Through Hotwire's deep understanding of the industry and unique relationships, consumers have been able to save millions of dollars on all their travel needs.
About the Hotwire Hotel Rate Report
The Hotwire Hotel Rate Report will run results during the second week of each month. Results are calculated by looking at Hotwire stay dates for select regions in the current month, and comparing prices in the current month against Hotwire prices in the same month in the prior year. Prices are compared within the same star rating categories for consistency, and the percent change in price for each region is generated as an overall average of the changes in those categories. The prices in the charts above are examples for a particular star rating category within that market, and actual prices may be higher or lower than the example that is provided.
