The Midwest’s most expensive hotel destination isn’t the region’s largest city, which doesn’t even make the top five in ChicagoHotels.org’s survey. Instead, it’s Cincinnati, where the cheapest available double room goes for $186 per night. At the other end of the spectrum is Wichita, KS, where a double room starts at $87 per night.
Another city in Kansas, Topeka, rounds out the bottom five at $97 per night. Chicago is surprisingly affordable at $157 per night, an average that puts the Windy City in eighth place among the 30 Midwestern cities ranked by ChicagoHotels.
After Cincinnati come a pair of college towns: Ann Arbor, MI and Madison, WI, both at an average of $184 per night. ChicagoHotels’ survey is based on May pricing for hotels ranked three stars and above, since most cities in the Midwest reach their highest average nightly rates during the month.
