has announced an all-new hotel reservation engine delivering the most amenity choices on the Web. Now more than ever, travelers will be able to search for the exact criteria they want in a hotel - whether they require a pool, meeting facilities, or a child-friendly atmosphere.
“Choosing a hotel online can be a daunting task. With all the choices available, it is essential for travelers to have easily accessible and robust information,” states Michael Thomas, President and CEO of OneTravel.com. “While many travelers like to choose a hotel by location or hotel chain, it’s extremely useful to sort through the mix with amenities. Oftentimes a laundry facility or restaurant on the premises can make or break a hotel in terms of convenience and likeability.”
In addition to offering 16 amenity choices during the search process, OneTravel’s new hotel engine provides plenty of ways to deliver results travelers want. Search features include:
¯ Basic location search by city, airport, or address;
¯ Optional search functions including hotel name, hotel chain, room rates, star rating, and distance; and
¯ Amenity options such as fitness center, golf, modem lines in rooms, business centers, 24-hour check-in, and more.
Once targeted results are returned, travelers can quickly sort the listings based on features most important to them. Sorting capabilities include star rating, distance, and OneTravel’s exclusive Smart Value hotels - those properties designed to give consumers the best bang for their buck. Additional organization and decision-making tools include:
¯ A built-in search bar on the results page that allows travelers to easily modify their parameters;
¯ Area selections that permit users to filter results by general locale such as “Downtown Orlando” or “Disney World Area”;
¯ Photos and descriptions for most hotels;
¯ Graphical amenity displays, which allow travelers to see amenities at-a-glance by hotel;
¯ Detailed maps from MapPoint; and
¯ Talkback Reviews, which provide detailed feedback from travelers who previously stayed at the hotel.
From the initial search to the reservation process, OneTravel’s new hotel engine makes it easy to find the right property at the right price. Even the check out process is streamlined and straightforward, displaying important details travelers need to know before they book, such as cancellation policies and rate restrictions for each hotel.
