    It is really hard to believe that the average is only USD 137 when I look at my various US bookings.
    But my US stays are work related and the locations are usually in towns and cities.
    Be interesting to have statistics by brands, and even more interesting if breakdown is available by individual hotels.
    That will be a great read.

    I can believe it. I've stayed in a variety of places across the us and even in east bumble towns the costs are higher than I remember them being in the past. In a way I consider it a postiive sign that the economy is doing better.

    I was really trying to say that most of my US stays have rates higher than USD 137.
    So to me, USD 137 average sounded lower than what the ground situation is.

    My upcoming SFO trip returned rates around USD 220 - USD 250.
    I was looking at Hilton, Starwood and IHG properties. :)

    Yeah. Not in Singapore certainly for the major chains but to be fair, there are also lots of those "basic" hotels

    "Decent room IN the U.S." and US$137 just don't seem to go together either, IMO, nowadays. Much higher in many cases, even before the extra fees, at least at the larger chain's properties.

    Government hotel rates have gone up a lot during roughly the last half year. In principle, this should reflect prevailing rates actually charged by decent but not luxurious properties in various locations.
