Marco Island, located a few miles from the Florida Everglades and close to Naples, is the most expensive beach destination in Florida, according to the latest survey from CheapHotels.org.
The survey specifically compared the hotel rates of 20 popular Floridian destinations for this year’s February and March time period, the high season for most beach destinations in the Sunshine State.
In Marco Island, travelers will have to spend an average of $302 per night for the most affordable double room. It bears pointing out that only hotels located close to the beach and with a positive average client rating were considered for the survey.
The following table lists the 10 most expensive beach destinations in Florida. The rates indicated reflect the average rate for the cheapest available double room (minimum: 3-star hotel) at each locale for the time period spanning February 1 through March 31, 2014. Although this survey comes from CheapHotels.com, I am linking out to TripAdvisor pages where you can compare prices from multiple sources for your specific vacation dates.
