Secret hotels are becoming continuously more in demand, and with that extra travel providers are offering opaque booking offers. Normally, all the travel agents divulge the star rating for every hotel and a passage on the neighbourhood and facilities so you can make a knowledgeable decision as to whether the establishment is for you. Lastminute also include Google Maps for each listing, with a marked out area of where the resort is located. It’s also important to point out that usually the title of the secret hotel will intimate it’s location. For instance Hotwire display their secret hot rate hotels under a title explicitly linked to an area or point of interest.
So why do these hotels choose to list without publishing their name? The hotels and resorts in the secret hotel collection are often 4 or 5 stars, and thus don’t wish to discount their guest rooms in public. They hence list without stating their name, so that they can keep their rooms full without customers waiting for reduced rates before they book. The secret hotels idea makes sure that both the guest and the property are content.
