Miami, Florida (PRWEB) November 26, 2011
It used to be that booking a room and researching your destination required multiple online searches… No longer. BestHotels.com announces the re-launch of its flagship website — a one-stop destination for snagging the best room rates in real time, along with city maps, travel articles, reviews on featured hotels and more.
“BestHotels.com functions as an up-to-the-minute resource both for domestic and international travelers,” stated company spokesperson Spencer Dobbs. “We’re dedicated to providing our users with access to the best room rates, as well as insightful information about popular destinations and events.”
The redesigned BestHotels.com distinguishes itself with robust content in four destination categories: Seasonal, Landmarks, Activities, and Events. A sampling of current articles finds valuable tips for staying in New Orleans during Mardis Gras, taking in the Paris Jazz Festival, enjoying a mint julep at The Kentucky Derby, or beating the heat at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival.
A streamlined user interface allows visitors to conduct a quick room search from anywhere in the site, on any city in the world.
“In today’s Web 2.0 world, consumers are not content to be passive,” Dobbs continued. “Users want to feel like valued players at their favorite websites. That’s exactly what we strive for at BestHotels.com.”
Other new features include:
- Featured Hotels: delivers reviews, amenities and ratings on the hottest hotels around the world.
- My Viewed Hotels: keeps a running display of users’ recently viewed hotels for easy comparison.
- Nearby Hotels: tracks sought-after hotels in any targeted search area, as well as those offering discounted room rates and packages.
- Maps: Expands or zooms in for a street view of any hotel’s location and surrounding attractions.
- Booked Hotels in the Area: tracks recent reservations at comparable hotels in the user’s search area.
Lush photography from featured locations helps put travelers in the mood to escape their daily grind. Freelance travel writers from around the world contribute regularly to the updated site’s content, which includes traveling on a budget, local attractions, hotel reviews, event coverage, and more.
“We wanted the updated site to capture some of the romance of travel, as well as provide users with a quick, painless way to shop for the best rates,” said Dobbs. “The new BestHotels.com is more than another bargain bin for discounted rooms; it makes you feel like you’re already on vacation.”
