Global Hotel Price Changes
A new infographic from Hotels.com showing some of the Global Hotel Price Changes from 2010 to 2011.
The research revealed that:
New York was the favourite travel destination for UK travellers in the first six months of the year despite the average hotel price in the city hitting £160, according to the latest Hotels.com Hotel Price Index™ (HPI®).The 6% rise followed strong demand from domestic travellers and a surge of overseas visitors cashing in on the appreciation of their currencies against the US Dollar.The Big Apple was one of six US cities in the top 20 list with Las Vegas, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Orlando and Miami also featuring as the Pound held its own.
I like the design experiment with the Polar Area Diagram (Nightingale Rose Diagram), but the colored sections relating to two different axis are a little hard to understand. I really like the monument silouettes for each destination. Very similar to an earlier design InfoNewt did for them about the Hotel Price Index.
The infographic is missing some form of copyright license and the URL to make it easier to find the original infographic.
