When you choose your dates and location for a hotel, you’ll be given the secret hotels with vacant rooms. For every secret hotel, you’ll be presented with their star rating, a detailed description including tip-offs as to what’s close by and a passage detailing the services you can look forward to. It’s essential to read the description thoroughly, as typically it will intimate what the property is well known for, for instance audio/visual equipment for business guests or an award winning spa perfect for romantic breaks. Normally the title of the secret hotel will also give away a crucial detail.
