When you pick your dates and location for a hotel, you’ll be given the secret hotels with available rooms. For each secret hotel, you’ll be shown their star rating, a detailed description including pointers as to what’s close by and a passage specifying the amenities you can expect. It’s highly recommended to read the description thoroughly, as often it will detail what the property is useful for, such as meeting rooms for those visiting on business or spa treatments ideal for romantic breaks. Usually the title of the secret hotel will also divulge something about it.
Secret hotels are a win win for both the customer and the hotel. Hotels part of the secret hotels collection can make sure suites get booked up without advertising their name in the public domain, whilst guests can save around 35% off the regular suite rate. As demand increases for this fresh concept, extra properties are joining the collection across the globe and more travel agents, such as Expedia, are offering their take on the opaque bookings concept.
