ONE CLICK ACCESS
Direct links to the most popular sections of the site give the end user the
ability to instantly find specific property types in specific locations without
exhaustive searches. Economy, corporate, extended stay hotels, etc., as well as
resorts and meeting planning space can be easily accessed from any page.
Our “Hotel Specials” directory lists current and upcoming promotions, discounts,
and other incentive programs submitted directly to HotelRooms.com by each
property. To date, no other service available on the Internet has provided a
unified, unbiased, non-commissioned marketplace which gives the hotel-seeker
access to hundreds of discount offers directly from hotels.
Visitors to HotelRooms.com quickly learn that in order to view property
information, they actually visit each hotel’s website. This is a key factor in
increasing the look-to-book ratio achieved through our site, since even the most
experienced and savvy net user feels less reluctant to make a purchase directly
from the supplier of the product, as opposed to an intermediary or re-seller. In
most cases, people also feel that by shopping directly, they are not exposed to
prices which have been marked up for the sake of profit margins, and as a result
they feel comfortable that they are getting the best deal.
A hotel-seeker visiting HotelRooms.com is not forced to perform a reservation
online. Having full access to each property’s information, they have the choice
of GDS, email, fax or phone to book a room. This empowers the HotelRooms.com
visitor in a fashion rarely found on travel sites, which enforce the use of
online bookings to generate commissions.
Leaving the reservation method open to the traveler results in an increase of
trust and confidence, rather than the feeling of pressure to make a purchase.
Ultimately, this results in a positive purchase experience; one that brings
visitors back to HotelRooms.com.
