Google has launched an experimental search tool called Hotel Finder, which is specifically designed to help users find the perfect hotel. Hotel Finder search options are:
Figure out where to stay: To help you figure out where the action is, Hotel Finder shines a “tourist spotlight” on the most visited areas of U.S. cities. We select an initial shape for you based on what’s most popular or you can draw a shape around the area where you want to stay, e.g. on the ocean or along Sunset Boulevard.
Get a good deal: In the “Compared to typical” section, you can see how each hotel’s price compares to its historical average, so you can tell if it’s good value for your stay.
Keep a shortlist: As you flip through the results, add the hotels you like to a shortlist to easily keep track of the ones that interest you.
Google has stated that Hotel Finder is an early experiment, and it’s currently only available for locations in the U.S.
