Planning a trip to the USA? Assuming they actually let you into the country, you can save a ton of money on accommodation by visiting your destination in an off-peak season. This chart from Hipmunk is a cheat sheet for seasonal hotel rates at popular US cities.

Scoring a cheap hotel rate is one of the best ways to save money while travelling. The trick is knowing when and where to find the best hotel prices. Hipmunk’s chart makes things a little easier for people holidaying in the US – it shows you how to get cheap hotels without staying in a dive.

Besides telling you when to visit one of these cities to save on hotel rates, the chart also tells us how much we can expect to pay for a hotel in US dollars. If you’re planning a trip during the US summer, you might want to save California for another trip and head to Florida or Arizona instead (or Vegas, baby!).
