hotels.com is rolling out a new room rate calendar feature to help travelers quickly identify the best room rates available at the property of their choice.The rate calendar, which appears on the `Rooms & Rates’ tab for each property on the hotels.com site, is color-coded to give users a quick, at-a-glance view of pricing levels for each day. Green indicates the lowest room rates, beige indicates moderate prices, and orange indicates the highest prices.
In addition, the calendar displays the actual price for most properties, so that users can compare specific cost differences among different dates. hotels.com provides calendar data for six months into the future.
“For travelers who are flexible in their plans and mindful of costs, the rate calendar is an invaluable tool,” said Scott Booker, chief hotel expert for hotels.com. “This site feature is designed to help customers make a more informed decision; we will continue to focus on providing resources to help make the property research, selection and booking process as simple as possible.”
