You also want a hotel that suits your needs and preferences, whether you are looking for a family-friendly place, a romantic getaway, or a business trip. But how do you find the best hotel for you among the thousands of options available online?
That’s where Google Hotel Finder comes in. Google Hotel Finder is a powerful and easy-to-use tool that helps you discover, compare, and book hotels for your trip. You can use it to find hotels that match your criteria, learn about their features and location, and compare prices from different booking partners. You can also use it to support sustainable hotels and find great deals. In this blog post, we will show you how to use Google Hotel Finder and travel the world with confidence.
How to Use Google Hotel Finder
Using Google Hotel Finder is simple and intuitive. You can start your hotel search on Google in two ways:
- Go to google.com/travel/hotels and enter your destination, dates, and number of guests. You can also browse popular destinations if you are just exploring.
- Start on google.com and search for “hotels in” the city or region you want to visit. You can also add requirements, like “pet-friendly” or “near downtown”. Within the search results, you may find a list of four hotels with a map. Click on it if you want to continue your search on Google.
After you enter your search terms, you will see a list of hotel results and a map that shows the same results. By default, these results are sorted by relevance, which considers dozens of factors, such as your search terms, location, price, user ratings, and reviews. Your results may also be personalized based on your browsing activity, recent searches, and previous bookings on Google.
You can adjust your results with the filters and sort options at the top of the page. You can:
- Adjust your dates or the number of guests in your group.
- Filter by price range, user rating, hotel class, amenities, deals, eco-certification, and more.
- Sort by relevance, price (low to high or high to low), rating (high to low), or distance from a point of interest.
Each hotel result gives you a snapshot of that hotel. You can find information like the average user rating, key amenities, and the lowest price from Google’s booking partners that can be booked for your dates. You can also see if the price is a good value compared to similar hotels in the area by looking for a “Deal” or “Great deal” badge. You can also identify hotels whose sustainability practices meet the standards of accredited organizations by looking for a green “eco-certified” badge.
