When you pick your dates and location for a hotel, you’ll be presented with the secret hotels with vacancies. For each secret hotel, you’ll be shown their star rating, a short description including hints as to the rough location and a passage mentioning the features you can look forward to. It’s important to read the description meticulously, as usually it will intimate what the property is good for, for instance an onsite conference centre for those visiting on business or an onsite bar ideal for romantic breaks. Normally the title of the secret hotel will also divulge something about it.
Secret hotels are advantageous for both the customer and the property. Hotels part of the secret hotels collection can guarantee rooms get booked up without advertising their name in the public domain, whilst guests can save up to 35% off the normal room price. As demand increases for this revolutionary notion, more establishments are being added to the collection across the world and more travel agents, such as Hotwire, are offering their take on the opaque bookings idea.
