The new update makes the HotelsByMe travel application universal. Now the same application is viewable on both iPhone and iPad with user interfaces tailored to each device. While there are a number of sites that offer hotel reservations, most do not address the needs of mobile shoppers. The end result is an online shopping experience that can be very time consuming for consumers trying to find the right hotel for the right price.
With HotelsByMe’s newly released app, now users can find a hotel on the iPad in just three easy steps:
Step 1: FIND. Hotels are plotted on a map to give users a visual cue of the physical location of each property.
Step 2: VIEW. Relevant information — such as room rates, guest reviews and photos — are presented in a concise, easy-to-read format.
Step 3: BOOK. The new simplified, single-screen check-out process is only two taps away from the initial search screen.
While HotelsByMe has simplified its new app, it hasn’t sacrificed functionality. In fact, the HotelsByMe app has added new features. During a hotel search, shoppers can now seamlessly switch between multiple hotel views: on a map, as a list or by individual hotel properties. Using the new filter feature, shoppers can also locate the perfect hotel based on their specific needs. Finally, HotelsByMe has integrated TripAdvisor reviews, enabling users to make their choice based on "wisdom of the crowd."
By partnering with Expedia® Affiliate Network (EAN), HotelsByMe is able to offer its users access to over 110,000 hotel properties, TripAdvisor® reviews and exceptional customer service.
