Secret hotels are becoming more and more sought after, and with that extra travel providers are providing opaque booking deals. Typically, all the travel providers expose the star rating for every resort and a passage on the neighbourhood and features so you can make an educated choice as to whether the property is for you. Lastminute also utilise Google Maps for each listing, with a marked out zone of where the resort is situated. It’s also worth noting that normally the name of the secret hotel will intimate where it’s positioned. For instance Hotwire display their secret hot rate hotels under a name specifically connected to a district or well known attraction.
So why do these hotels and resorts elect to list without publishing their name? The hotels and resorts in the secret hotel collection are often 4 or 5 stars, and therefore don’t wish to discount their suites in public. They therefore list anonymously, so that they can keep their suites full without people waiting for reduced rates before they book. The secret hotels notion makes sure that both the customer and the property are content.
