Google Hotel Finder Goes Mobile

google-hotel-finderGoogle’s Hotel Finder, which launched in June 2011, is now available on mobile devices.

Google said all you need to do is go to www.google.com/hotels directly on your smart phone and search for your destination. Listings will come up almost immediately, giving you the ability to filter the search results by price, hotel class, user rating and distance. Each hotel listing page will show you photos, hotel amenities, reviews and its location on a map.

Google will also let you book the hotel directly through the site using Google Wallet or your credit card.

Google said availability is currently available in the U.S. for stays within the country. But Google added that they “hope to expand more broadly soon.”

    Wonder how they will pull the search results? By GeoLocation? Booking Engine?

    Interesting and useful post.

    I will try this new resource by google and test It.

    Currently I am more than happy with a “traditional” search engine

    I discovered few months ago.

    I have to travel a lot for my business, mostly in Europe,

    but often in the States. Before I used to use sites like Travelocity,

    but I quickly found the better way to find deals is to go to

    the second level-those sites like http://reservelowcost.com

    Who compare the hundreds of different booking sites in one

    single search. So you not only see trivago or expedia

    deals but ALL of them in one place. I must’ve save over

    3,000 euros since I started using them. I agree, just

    using one of the top booking sites is not the best idea.

    By the way ,Let’s see How Google/hotel works and what

    kind of results gives and I will make a decision.

    Thanks!
