San Francisco—A drop in leisure travel is resulting in cheaper hotel rates at most major cities across Canada, according to the latest data from, a discount travel site.

Its October report outlined the top five cities in Canada where hotel rates have dropped the most. Calgary made the top of the list with an 11 percent drop, followed by Niagara Falls and Montreal, which both dropped 10 percent.

The popularity of fall business travel sends workers to large business centers such as Vancouver and Toronto, which boosts prices. But the drop-off in leisure travel means good deals are still open for casual travelers in spots such as Calgary, the gateway to Banff and the Rockies and Niagara Falls, according to the report.


When compared to the same time last year, hotel prices in Vancouver are down nine percent, and 10 percent in Quebec City.
