The survey compared hotel rates in 30 Midwestern cities. To be considered, hotels were required to have a minimum 3-star rating and have a central location. For each destination, determined the average rate for the least expensive double room during October 2020.

Grand Rapids topped the rankings with an average rate of $127 for the most affordable double room. Cincinnati and Ann Arbor complete the podium, with average rates of $118 and $116, respectively.
