Finding the right hotel can make or break your vacation, so with this in mind, we’re introducing Hotel Finder, a new experimental search tool specifically designed to help you find that perfect hotel. Google Hotel Finder makes it easy to narrow down the options:
Figure out where to stay: To help you figure out where the action is, Hotel Finder shines a "tourist spotlight" on the most visited areas of U.S. cities. We select an initial shape for you based on what’s most popular or you can draw a shape around the area where you want to stay, e.g. on the ocean or along Sunset Boulevard.
When you’re ready to book a hotel, you’ll find a selection of booking options from a range of available partners or directly from the hotel.
Wonder how Hotels.com and other major players that Google has lured into the fray over the years feel about this?
They are being investigated by authorities in the USA and Europe, and they pull a stunt like this?
These guys are slick, and this is not the engineers at work, this is the MBAs and lawyers performing.
But what's the difference between transactional and advertising monetisation anyway.
We're talking useless semantics in the monetisation process ...
