Map Features

We’ve kept our popular map view so you can still see hotels on the map, but we’ve added new features! Now, layer on Neighborhoods, Heatmaps, or your Google Calendar to the map to help refine your search.

  • Neighborhoods: Click the compass to see a list of neighborhoods in the city you’re visiting. Then, click the check box to see all hotels in that specific area. For some neighborhoods, we have descriptions to give you more context to the area – click the eyeball to read more information!

  • Calendar: If you travel for business or tend to have a crazy calendar, you can now integrate your calendar to see where your meetings or appointments are on the map. Find hotels right next to your meeting location so you don’t have to trek too far!

Visual Refresh

Best of all, we’ve updated our entire design, and you now have alternative ways to search for hotels. If you don’t like using the map, then switch to the list view. We’re also giving you more ways to personalize and focus your search to meet your exact needs. Filter hotel results however you’d like – price, stars, reviews, property type, amenities, and chains. And while you’re busy researching hotels, you can now bookmark your favorites along the way. When you’re done flipping through pages, click “Bookmarks” to see all of the hotels you’ve selected.
