Methodology:We took our list of cities from Euromonitor’s Top 100 City Destinations, omitting seven cities due to lack of data. We then used Booking.com to find out how many hotels there are in each city, and of those how many are five-star hotels. This site also gave us the average costs per room of a night in a five-star hotel in each city.
