A look at spring travel data tells us that average hotel rates are still down slightly over last year, hovering around $156 for a domestic hotel stay and $218 for an international hotel stay. When you compare these numbers to hotel prices in 2008 and see that they’re down 14 percent and 11 percent respectively, you can’t argue that they’re a real steal.
