Are you in the market to save money on your upcoming business trip? Then how about booking a secret hotel. Did you know that you could save up to 35% when you elect to book a secret hotel? That’s correct, 35%! A growing number of people are becoming acquainted with the virtues of booking a secret hotel, as more locations are opening up and more 4 and 5 star hotels and resorts are joining the collection. In 2013, Hotwire declared that an additional 5,000 hotels would be added to their collection.
So how do they work? Well, when a hotel has unfilled rooms but does not wish to promote markdowns in public, they can list without stating their name via travel agents like Lastminute. Potential customers can then read a thorough description to find out more about the hotel. They will also be able to see the star rating and a list of amenities. However, they will not be able to view any pictures of the rooms or it’s name until the booking is confirmed.
