Secret hotels are becoming more and more sought after, and with that additional travel providers are providing opaque booking promotions. Normally, all the travel agents expose the star rating for each establishment and notes on the area and services so you can make an educated decision as to whether the establishment is for you. Lastminute also integrate Google Maps for each listing, with a marked out zone of where the hotel is located within. It’s also worth noting that often the title of the secret hotel will refer to it’s location. For instance Hotwire list their secret hot rate hotels under a name clearly linked to a neighbourhood or landmark.
So why do these hotels and resorts choose to list without stating their name? The hotels and resorts in the secret hotel collection are often 4 or 5 star, and as a consequence don’t want to discount their guest rooms publicly. They thus list without stating their name, so that they can keep their rooms full without customers waiting for offers before they book. The secret hotels idea ensures both the customer and the property are content.
