New Guide from Hotels.com Pinpoints top casino, spa, romance and
shopping hotels based on verified hotel guest reviews
TORONTO, May 6, 2014 /CNW/ - Today, Hotels.com™ recognized some of the top U.S. and Canadian hotel properties with the release of a summer hotel guide based on reviews from
travellers who have actually stayed in the hotels.
To ease the sometimes confusing maze of identifying the perfect hotel,
Hotels.com is showcasing the top-rated properties within the categories
of casino, spa, romance and shopping based on its database of more than
10 million verified, guest-submitted hotel reviews. Travellers can let
Hotels.com guests serve as their guide in choosing the hotels that best
cater to these themes in the most popular destinations.
Using genuine hotel reviews that are verified upon the completion of
each guest's stay, Hotels.com compiled the list of top properties
according to average guest rating, total submitted reviews and total
5.0-rated hotel reviews. Hotels.com will release a more extensive list
of top picks with an upcoming guest review report later this year.
"Unlike some travel websites, our guest reviews can only be written by
Hotels.com customers upon completion of their stay," said Taylor L.
Cole, APR, travel expert for Hotels.com. "We created this handy report
with a dual purpose - to provide travellers with the most helpful
information from other travellers and to recognize our hotel partners
that are the best at what they do, according to hotel guests."
The report coincides with the latest TV spot from Hotels.com - 'Obvious
Lies' - which illustrates the benefits of verified guest reviews. In
the new ad, a family finds itself arriving in a room that is "more
murdery than the reviews said," when Captain Obvious™ informs them that
Hotels.com genuine guest reviews are written by travellers who have
genuinely stayed at the property, and that "Hotels.com would have
mentioned the finger."
