Getting The Most From The Comparison Tool

Selecting your destination and entering your dates is just the start. Major cities will show hundreds of available hotels, so the numbers have to be trimmed down to just those which exactly match your needs.  That is where you find the real power of the comparison search engine ... the Refine Your Search tools.

The following example shows how to use those tools to find exactly the right hotel at the right price for the right dates.

Example: Let's say you need a hotel in New York city that:

  • is located in the Times Square district

  • is rated 4 star or better

  • has a price of not more than US$750 per night

  • has 24 hour reception, high speed internet and room service.

Start by running the search with your dates and New York as the city.  Once the results are available, you can start to refine them to your exact needs using the following options

  • Star Ratings: Define the quality you want.
  • Price Range: Slide bars to set upper and lower price limits.
  • Places: Set the location you want by choosing from:
    • Districts & Boroughs
    • Suburbs & Districts
    • Airport proximity
    • Entertainment Centers & Things To Do
    • Landmarks
    • Institutions (universities, hospitals etc)
    • Type of Property (hotel, resort, condos, b&b, vacation rentals etc)
    • Guest Ratings
    • Property Features
    • Guest Facilities
    • Theme (business, vacation, honeymoon, sports and recreation, historic etc)

In a matter of minutes, a list of hundreds of hotels can be narrowed down to just a select few that exactly match the criteria you specified.
