Cheapest and Priciest Labor Day Hotels

By on

Traveling this weekend? Hopefully not to Seattle.

A new survey by Cheaphotels.org says that city has the most costly Labor Day weekend hotel rates. Visitors will “have to pay at least $312 per night to stay in Washington State’s largest city,” the survey says. “And that’s only if they’re willing to settle for the cheapest available 3-star hotel room.”

The regular going rate in Seattle is $188, but the city hosts the annual music and arts Bumbershoot Festival on Labor Day weekend, which “annually attracts close to 100,000 visitors to the city.”

Many cities are actually cheaper on Labor Day – Boston, New York, San Francisco, and Austin among them.
