A night in a hotel on the world's leading destinations is less than 14 percent from last month and down by nearly 22 percent from October 2008.
Dubai and Rio de Janiero are the only cities to increase their hotel prices since last month, at 10 and 3 percent respectively. Compared with October 2008 every city's average hotel price has fallen by double digit percentages except Marseilles, along the Mediterranean Sea in France, which is still down 8 percent.
