Looking for some top tips for finding the best hotels on Use our top 3 searching hacks below to make your booking process even easier!

  1. allows travelers to filter their search results in a number of different categories. We have found in the past that we get the best results when filtering accommodations by Review Score (determined by travelers like you) as opposed to by star rating, because let’s be real; even a five-star resort can have awful service.

  2. Hit that Deals button! Filtering to see accommodation options that are offering great deals during your stay will increase your chances of getting even more bang for your buck!

  3. Use the Map View feature. Sometimes it can be difficult to judge just how close your accommodations will be to local tourist sites, bars, restaurants etc. and using the map feature to narrow down your search results even further will guarantee that you end up staying exactly where you want to be.

Sifting through reviews can be A LOT to take in, and if it’s your first time visiting a new location you may not even know exactly which hotel or neighborhood is right for you.
