The cheapest stay at the most luxurious hotels in Manhattan will still set you back nearly $1,000 a night.
New York City’s Mandarin Oriental and The Ritz-Carlton Central Park are the most expensive city hotels in the U.S., according to a recent report from Luxury-Hotels.com.
While the Big Apple certainly dominated the list, increasing competition could impact rates.
“More and more luxury hotels are being built in Manhattan…and there are more luxury Airbnb flats and that puts pressure on the luxury market,” said Daniel Derger, who oversaw the survey.
For the survey, Luxury-Hotels analyzed rates for a double room for a one or two-day stay in October in cities with more than 500,000 people. Mondays and Tuesdays were excluded from bookings.
October tends to be the most expensive month for luxury hotel bookings, thanks in part to heavy business travel, according to Derger.
