Secret hotels are becoming continuously more in demand, and with that more travel agents are offering opaque booking deals. As a rule, all the travel agents divulge the star rating for each property and notes on the neighbourhood and features so you can make a knowledgeable choice as to whether the property is for you. Lastminute also integrate Google Maps for each listing, with a marked out section of where the resort is situated. It’s also worth mentioning that often the name of the secret hotel will intimate where it’s located. For instance Hotwire list their secret hot rate hotels under a name explicitly related to a district or landmark.
So why do these hotels and resorts elect to list without publishing their name? The properties in the secret hotel collection are often 4 or 5 star, and for that reason do not want to discount their suites publicly. They hence list in secret, so that they are able to keep their suites full without customers waiting for cut rates before they book. The secret hotels construct makes sure that both the guest and the property are content.
