Why are some hotels doing this?
Money. typically hotels have to pay a 10% commission to the network, which is shared with the affiliate.
Hotel want to cut out the middle man, keep the 10% commission, and instead have people book through their own site instead of large network or affiliate sites.
Book people don't usally find hotel by browsing their sites, they search using online hotel site that list all hotels.
Good for them, bad for affiliates.
