Secret hotels are becoming increasingly sought after, and with that additional travel providers are providing opaque booking deals. Normally, all the agents divulge the star rating for each establishment and bullet points on the location and services so you can make an informed choice as to whether the resort is for you. Lastminute also utilise Google Maps for each listing, with a marked out zone of where the resort is located within. It’s also worth noting that normally the name of the secret hotel will allude to where it’s located. For instance Hotwire list their secret hot rate hotels under a title explicitly associated with a neighbourhood or point of interest.
So why do these hotels and resorts choose to list without publishing their name? The properties in the secret hotel collection are often four or five stars, and as a consequence do not care to reduce their suites in public. They therefore list without stating their name, so that they can keep their suites full without customers waiting for deals before they book. The secret hotels notion ensures both the customer and the hotel are content.
