AUSTIN, Texas, June 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- The latest analysis by Upgraded Points compares the average nightly costs of Airbnbs and hotels across 100 of America's largest cities.

"Hotels have long been the go-to choice for travelers seeking comfort and convenience, but Airbnb has grown in popularity as an alternative, offering unique stays and a taste of local life," said Keri Stooksbury, editor-in-chief at Upgraded Points. "When choosing between comfort and uniqueness, cost plays a huge role, and we wanted to find just where you could find the best accommodation deals."

Study Methodology

To compare the cost-effectiveness of staying at an Airbnb versus a hotel, Upgraded Points analyzed the average nightly prices of Airbnbs (entire places) and hotels in the 100 largest U.S. cities. Airbnb data was sourced directly from Airbnb, while hotel data came from Kayak. The analysis used average nightly costs for each city, with hotel prices based on a single room for two adults. Any nightly cost over $1,000 was excluded as an outlier.
