World's most expensive hotels

By Aditi Chengappa     Feb 26, 2010 in Lifestyle
Despite the worldwide decrease in hotel rates in 2009 due to the weakening economy, Moscow, Abi Dhabi and New York still boast the most expensive hotels in the world.
The year 2009 saw a worldwide decrease in hotel rate due a globally unstable economy. In an ANI report however, a survey reveals that the Russian capital Moscow tops the list of expensive hotel rooms with an average price of $420 a night.
Coming in second is the capital city of United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi, with rooms costing an average of $350 a night.
A close third is New York City, known for its sky-scraping luxury hotels with rates to match; rooms cost an average of $320 per night even though most Manhattan hotels lowered their price last year.
The survey was conducted by Hogg Robinson Group, an international corporate travel services company and had found that in most cities, room rates had dropped considerably last year. Given that people were cutting down on travel costs, hotels offered discounts to attract vacationers.
"The average cost of a room in New York in 2008 was $415, which was about 23 percent higher than last year," the survey reported.
The only other U.S city to feature was Washington with an average of $285 a night.
