MIAMI – Feb. 10, 2021 – Key West is the United States’ most expensive destination on Presidents Day weekend this year based on cost of lodging, according to a survey conducted by Cheaphotels.org.
The survey compared hotel rates in destinations across America for February 12-15 – the dates for this year’s Presidents Day weekend. Only hotels rated 3 stars or more and located close to a beach or city center were considered.
In Key West, travelers will spend $472 per night for the most affordable double room, the survey revealed. Breckenridge and Beaver Creek, two ski resorts in Colorado, complete the podium at nightly rates of $432 and $412, respectively.
While rates are stable in Florida and the ski resorts compared to last year, you will find significantly more affordable rooms in Hawaii. While Lahaina was at a rate of $572 per night, the priciest destination for the Presidents Day weekend in 2020, you will find a room for less than $200 this year.
Charlotte Smith from Cheaphotels.org estimates that there are about 60-70% fewer tourists in Hawaii this Presidents Day compared to last year. Current travel restrictions on the islands of Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Lanai, and Hawaii (Big Island) include a negative Covid test prior to departure. Otherwise, they face a 10-day quarantine.
