Just a week after launching an amazing iPhone app, Hipmunk added a new feature to its popular travel site that allows you to find and book a hotel.The hotel finder is just as simple and intuitive as the flight finder. When you select a city, you’re shown a map display with each available hotel marked with coloured dots. (Green dots for cheap rates, red dots for pricey rates).
You can filter your search with a variety of map overlay features such as nearby dining, entertainment, and hotel amenities. Each hotel also has customer reviews from Yelp that you can view within Hipmunk.
Once you’ve selected a hotel, Hipmunk will direct you to the website you can book your room at. (Either a travel site like Orbitz or the hotel’s home page).
We tried out the hotel finder today. Check out our tour to see how it works. Click here to visit Hipmunk and get started.
