Secret hotels are becoming increasingly in demand, and with that extra travel providers are offering opaque booking offers. Normally, all the agents divulge the star rating for each property and a paragraph on the location and features so you can make an educated choice as to whether the property is for you. Lastminute also integrate Google Maps for each listing, with a marked out area of where the establishment is positioned. It’s also important to point out that often the name of the secret hotel will allude to it’s location. For example Hotwire list their secret hot rate hotels under a name explicitly connected to a district or well known attraction.
So why do these hotels select to list anonymously? The hotels and resorts in the secret hotel collection are often 4 or 5 stars, and for that reason do not like to discount their guest rooms in public. They thus list without publishing their name, so that they can keep their suites full without people waiting for reduced rates before they book. The secret hotels idea makes sure that both the customer and the establishment are content.
