Secret hotels are becoming progressively in demand, and with that extra travel providers are offering opaque booking promotions. Typically, all the agents provide the star rating for every resort and a passage on the neighbourhood and amenities so you can make an educated decision as to whether the establishment is for you. Lastminute also utilise Google Maps for each listing, with a marked out section of where the hotel is positioned. It’s also important to point out that normally the name of the secret hotel will imply it’s location. For instance Hotwire list their secret hot rate hotels under a title explicitly connected to a district or landmark.
So why do these hotels and resorts decide to list anonymously? The establishments in the secret hotel collection are often four or five stars, and therefore do not like to reduce their rooms in public. They therefore list without stating their name, so that they are able to keep their guest rooms full without customers waiting for cut rates before they book. The secret hotels concept ensures both the customer and the property are content.
