Groundhog Day Hotels Pricier Than Super Bowl

PUNXSUTAWNEY, PA (CNN) —  Groundhog Day is Thursday, and some people are willing to shell out big bucks for a glimpse at Punxsutawney Phil.

Hotel website Trivago recently looked at average hotel rates in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, where Phil appears every Groundhog Day. The average price for a one-night hotel stay in Punxsutawney around Groundhog Day stands at $450 a night.

By comparison, a hotel room in Houston where Super Bowl 51 happens this Sunday, is $340.

Punxsutawney hotel prices are a lot more reasonable once Groundhog Day ends. Trivago says the city’s average hotel price falls more than $300 the day after Groundhog Day.
