Hotel Search Engines

February 12, 2012

Straight away one cannot narrow results by NOTting out bed bugs.

It is nice to see vertical search engines get some press. MakeUseOf presents a roundup of the “10 Best Hotel Search Engines to Get the Best Deals When You Travel.” The article makes its case for each choice, complete with screenshots. See the write up for details.

Writer Saikat Basu remarks:

These ten hotel search engines are at the forefront of the pack, and there are more of them. Most of the websites in the hotel search category are quite similar…offering a mix of hotel reservations, reviews, and great deals. . . . Having a few of these hotel search engines bookmarked helps you to cross-check the best deals and plan your trip with low overheads.

A good idea for the frequent traveler. Basu’s first choice is Google Hotel Finder. (Nice to see Google doing something right.) Next are Bing Travel;; Laterooms; Tripadvisor;; Hotels Combined; Hotwire; Venere; and Roomkey.

Odd, there’s not a single gnome or retired starship captain among them. Now for the antihistamine ointment.

    But, the gnome and retired starship captain are so fun to watch! Thanks for the alternative choices, though. Will definitely keep them in mind next time I book.
