A new survey from TripAdvisor (http://www.tripadvisor.com) confirms that location is the top ranked factor in determining that a hotel is great. This insight comes as no surprise to the founders of http://www.seeyourhotel.com who have built a website for travelers who care about location. Using sophisticated technology combined with reviews, videos of hotel rooms, and online booking capabilities, their website helps visitors find hotel rooms that are close to their meeting, destination, or family gathering. Now at their two year anniversary point, the website creators have found that high gas prices, a desire to explore a city on foot, and a burning desire to eliminate travel hassles have lead more 50,000 visitors a month to their website in search of a hotel in a convenient location.

According to founder Jean-Francois Noel, "The location of your hotel can change the whole perspective of your trip. If you're traveling for business, you probably want to get where you are going quickly. But you don't necessarily want to be in some deserted downtown no-man's land. If you're traveling for pleasure, you usually want to walk and discover and experience the area up-close--not from the back seat of a cab. We are pleased that after two years of development on our site, an external survey has confirmed what we know to be true. "

Using sophisticated technology combined with reviews, videos of hotel rooms, and online booking capabilities, http://www.seeyourhotel.com helps visitors find hotel rooms that are close to their meeting, destination, or family gathering.
