Do you want to stay at a 5-star, luxury hotel but the cost is too high in cash or points? Thanks to Asher&Lyric crunching the numbers from TripAdvisor, we have the costs of 5-star hotels in the top 100 destinations around the world.
This Chart Shows Cost of 5-Star Hotels in 100 Top Destinations Around the World
This means that, instead of going for that 5-star luxury trip in Manhattan, you may want to use some of that money for airfare instead and get a fantastic deal on the beach at a 5-star hotel in the Dominican Republic. The average difference, according to their research, between those two places during peak season is over $700 per night! The peak season average for a 5-star in NYC can run $1,100 per night while a 5-star in the DR would be $350.
Yes, I understand you will get different experiences outside the hotel but if you are looking for that high-end, luxurious vacation hotel, it may save you some money to take a look at the chart. Or, if you are using hotel points, you can get a good idea of what your points could get you in value!
