Secret hotels are becoming more and more popular, and with that additional travel providers are providing opaque booking offers. Generally, all the agents disclose the star rating for each hotel and notes on the location and services so you can make a knowledgeable choice as to whether the hotel is for you. Lastminute also integrate Google Maps for each listing, with a marked out zone of where the resort is located. It’s also important to point out that typically the name of the secret hotel will imply it’s location. For instance Hotwire list their secret hot rate hotels under a title explicitly related to a neighbourhood or landmark.
So why do these hotels opt to list without stating their name? The hotels and resorts in the secret hotel collection are often four or five star, and as a consequence do not wish to reduce their guest rooms in the public domain. They thus list anonymously, so that they are able to keep their rooms full without customers waiting for reduced rates before they book. The secret hotels construct ensures both the guest and the property are content.
