    Room rates for this year’s Independence Day holiday weekend are running about 60 percent higher than July 2021’s average daily room rate.

    A survey of room rates for July 2-5 conducted Tuesday indicated the average price of a hotel room in Las Vegas for the Fourth of July weekend is $201.92 a night.

    The higher hotel room rates coincide with an American Hotel & Lodging Association study that found Americans are more conscious of inflation and higher gasoline prices when making travel decisions.

    The AHLA indicated that Fourth of July is the summer holiday when most people are expected to travel, with 32 percent, compared with 25 percent for Memorial Day and 27 percent for Labor Day.
