Intellistrand has launched its 100th Web site on the City Hotels Network. Site visitors can view more than 50 hotels per city in
locations throughout North America, the Caribbean, Europe and Asia.
The 100th site launched, http://www.vancouverhotels.travel, comes 11 months
after the first City Hotels Network site, http://www.vegashotels.travel, was
produced by Intellistrand in December of 2005. By utilizing the Network,
viewers are able to search sites including http://www.newyorkcityhotels.travel,
http://www.parishotels.travel and http://www.cancunhotels.travel where they can make
reservations, research travel deals and learn specifics about particular
hotels in 100 cities worldwide.
In addition to the advanced booking features that offer a quick and
easy reservation process, the Network provides interactive maps powered by
Google Maps that allow the viewer to determine the hotel’s exact location
in relation to other attractions, which are listed on every Network site.
Each site also offers a “best selling” feature that ranks the most
requested hotel listings for each city, providing travelers with an idea of
what fellow travelers are selecting as their accommodations of choice.
Photographs are included to provide the viewer with a glimpse of the hotel
and its amenities before they make their selection.
