Report: World's priciest stays are in New York City, St. Moritz, Macau

Priciest places to stay in the world? New York City, St. Moritz and Macao top the list, report says.

If you've ever paid less than $246 a night for a hotel room in New York City, consider yourself lucky. That's the average price for any type of lodging in the Big Apple — and the most expensive average room rate in the world.

Mountain resort town St. Moritz, Switzerland, with an average $183 for a room, and casino-filled Macao, China, with an average $168 for a room, follow the Big Apple.

The prices for a night's stay may not seem super-high, but they reflect an average of all types of lodgings in a city, including airbnb listings,  five-star hotels and hostels.
