The® Hotel Price Index™ (HPI™) is a regular survey of hotel prices in major city destinations across the world. The HPI is based on bookings made on and prices shown are those actually paid by customers (rather than advertised rates) for the first half of 2011. The report largely compares prices paid in 2010 with prices paid in 2011.

Are you looking for a luxury hotel that won't break the bank? Are you planning a visit to Europe but don't know which cities are affordable? Organizing a business meeting and looking for the ideal destination? Let the® Hotel Price Index™ (HPI™) help make those decisions for you.
