Six of the largest hotel chains in the business have partnered together to launch Roomkey.com, a new hotel search engine.
Owned by a joint venture of Hilton Worldwide, Marriott International, Hyatt Hotels, InterContinental Hotels Group, Choice Hotels International and Wyndham Hotel Group, the site searches their inventory of nearly 30,000 hotels, according to the Washington Post. Once customers select a hotel from their search results, they are routed to the hotel’s Web site to book the room.
The new site will allow hotels to save the money they would normally be paying to 3rd-party booking sites like Expedia and Priceline.com.
What do you think of the new website?
