Hotels.com is it out with its annual Hotel Price Index ranking of travel destinations, including the cities that saw the greatest YOY increases in the price of a room.
And by a wide margin, the mind-bogglingly charming Charleston, S.C., tops the list, with a 46 per cent increase to $130 from $89.
The site does not provide information about what drove the increase. The city did not even make it on to the list of top 30 domestic travel destinations (a list topped by Las Vegas).
