Charleston ranks as the most expensive destination in the United States this spring for travelers, according to the latest survey from CheapHotels.org. The survey compared all U.S. destinations based on their cost of lodging during the month of April 2015.

Specifically, the survey pitted the destinations against each based on the minimum price travelers will have to pay to stay in the cheapest available double room. It bears mentioning that only centrally located hotels and inns with an overall rating of at least 2 stars and with a positive average client evaluation have been considered.

In Charleston, the second largest city in South Carolina, visitors will have to spend an average of $221 per night for the least expensive double room. Only slightly less expensive is Key West, taking the second spot on the survey with an average overnight rate of $219. Another destination in the Florida Keys, Islamorada, rounds out the Top 3 with an average nightly rate of $203 for the most affordable double room.

Nashville, Boston and New Orleans are three additional cities that landed in the Top 10. Another three beach destinations make an appearance as well, namely Santa Monica, California, Tybee Island in Georgia and St. Pete Beach in Florida.

The following table shows the 10 most expensive destinations in the USA this spring. The prices shown reflect the average rate for each destination’s cheapest available double room for the time period spanning April 1–30, 2015.
