A new report from one of the world’s largest online hotel search sites lists Springfield and Branson among “America’s Best Value Towns & Cities.”
The report from Trivago.com ranks Branson number one as the best value city in the country and Springfield at number seven.
The rankings were compiled using Trivago’s Best Value Index, which uses the annual average price of a standard double room and the city’s average hotel rating by trivago.com users.
About three million overnight visitors come to Springfield each year, according to the Springfield Convention & Visitors Bureau.
Jeff Seifried, president and CEO of the Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce, says having the number one spot in the rankings is probably one of the city’s greatest accolades.
