HotelMaps.com is a new hotel finder built around maps. Easier to use and offering more immediate information than conventional hotel finders, each hotel icon on the map is marked with a room price and star rating. In areas where hotels are close together, icons are grouped into clusters to avoid overlaps. Room rates and star ratings are permanently visible on the map, allowing the user to scan the most relevant information at a glance, thus accelerating the selection process. This sets HotelMaps.com apart from other map based hotel finders, which usually use dots or markers and lack immediate pricing information on the map. At launch, more than 200,000 hotels worldwide are available via HotelMaps.com. Once the user enters travel dates and hotel requirements, HotelMaps.com sources real-time room rates and availability data from more than 30 major travel sites and displays the best prices directly on the map.

The way we choose the hotels we stay in around the world is definitely changing with the technology that's available these days. Up until now it's been a case of trawling through sites and comparing prices and locations for your given destination. HotelMaps is a simple to use travel and map app that changes things somewhat by delivering an informative overview of the best accommodation available in your desired location and with room prices at your fingertips.
Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure this year, location will be a key factor in choosing a hotel. Is the beach nearby? How far is the exhibition center? Is the hotel situated next to a highway? All these questions can easily be answered with a map. With this idea in mind HotelMaps have developed a global hotel search engine built entirely around maps. HotelMaps offers you hundreds of thousands of hotels directly on Google Maps and focused on location, price and star rating. Comparing hotel prices can save you a lot of money and HotelMaps allows you to check room availability and get room rates from many major travel websites at the same time. The best price will appear directly on the map. So you can check price and location of all available hotels at one glance. Enter your travel dates and you can check room availability and actual rates from major travel websites and show you only available hotels.
