, a hotel room liquidation website that offers bargain rates at thousands of properties spanning more than 1,200 destinations worldwide, was officially launched yesterday.
Although the privately owned site will compete head-to-head with established giants like Expedia.com, Hotels.com and Travelocity.com, BetterHotelRates.com is expected to attract a strong consumer following for several reasons.
Pure Hotel Liquidator Pricing: Many so-called hotel discounters offer a mixture of discounted rates and retail rates, so you can`t always be sure of getting a bargain. By contrast, BetterHotelRates.com lists nothing but pure hotel room liquidator inventory at bargain prices.
Broad Range of Destinations: Hotel discounters typically focus their efforts on the busier (and often more expensive) convention cities and major metropolitan markets. However, the BetterHotelRates.com database of more than 1,200 different U.S. and international destinations includes everything from the biggest cities to the tiniest hamlets.
Diverse Hotel Selection: BetterHotelRates.com lists hotels in every price range—economy, mid-market and luxury—so you`re bound to find a bargain that fits your budget. And depending on your mood, you can choose anything from brand-name hotel chains to specialty boutique hideaways.
Detailed Hotel Information: BetterHotelRates.com contains a wealth of information about each property—a map, pictures, amenities, transport, nearby attractions, etc. You are not faced with having to book `blind`, only to be disappointed when you arrive at your destination.
Useful Search Options: BetterHotelRates.com contains no advertising and is extremely easy to navigate, even for the novice Internet surfer. There are several ways to search, including by zip code or popular attraction (for example, Disneyland or Times Square) among others. Adjusting your search parameters to include all hotels within 100 miles will often enable you to uncover bargains at nearby towns that are cheaper and less crowded. This is especially useful for consumers who are either traveling on a budget or looking for a weekend getaway close to home.
