TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Montreal is the most affordable city in North America for travelers, according to a new survey from CheapHotels.org. The survey compared 30 popular destinations in the United States and Canada based on their cost of lodging this fall.
Hotel rates during October served as the comparative basis in coming up with the rankings. The majority of big cities reach their highest hotel rates during October, according to the survey team of Cheaphotels. As such, that month is the most suitable in which to undertake such a comparison.
In Montreal, travelers will have to pay, on average, only $49 to stay in the least expensive double room. That figure is the lowest among all 30 destinations surveyed. It has to be noted that only centrally located hotels rated at least 2 stars and having a positive average client rating have been considered for this survey.

An average price of $214 per night for the cheapest available double room during October positions Beantown in the survey’s number one spot. The most expensive city in Canada is Calgary, which ranks twelfth most expensive overall in North America with an average nightly rate of $103.
