When it comes to hotel prices, Connecticut ranks 18th among the states although it borders the most expensive (New York), the second most expensive (Massachusetts) and the fifth most expensive (Rhode Island) states, according to the Hotel Price Index just released by Hotels.com.
I know. I was thinking the same thing. Rhode Island has a hotel? (C’mon, I’m kidding Ocean Staters. You got all the good beaches, so you can take a joke.)
Connecticut’s tourism authorities never tire of ignoring my suggestions for slogans, but I think this calls for another attempt to stop those tourists passing through between New York and Boston.
Connecticut: When you’re almost there, it’s cheaper here!
