Austin is Third Priciest City in Texas, According to Survey


Austin is the third most expensive destination in Texas based on the
cost of its accommodations. That is the determination of a recent survey
conducted by

Specifically, the survey established for 30 destinations in the Lone
Star State the rate an overnight guest will have to pay to stay in the
cheapest available double room. Only centrally located hotels rated at
least 3 stars were taken into consideration. The month of April 2018
served as the survey's comparative basis. It was selected because it
just so happens to be the month during which most Texan cities reach
their highest average hotel rates.

To stay in the Texan capital this spring, travelers will have to spend
an average of $174 per night for the least expensive room. Only two
cities are pricier: Odessa in the western part of the state known for
its cowboys and oil rigs and Waco in the central heart of Texas.

Dallas ranks fourth most expensive in the state at an average nightly
price tag of $158. Proving themselves to be a bit more affordable are
Houston and San Antonio. Both rank in the survey's midfield with average
rates of $112 and $107 per night, respectively. Texas's least expensive
city, by a wide margin, is the military boom town of Killeen in the
center part of the state. Bargain seekers should be able to find a room
there for slightly more than $50 per night.

The following table shows the 10 most expensive destinations in Texas
based on the average rate for their cheapest available double room
during the time period spanning April 1 to April 30, 2018.
