Google Enters Hotel Meta-Search Via Google Maps

Google - New York hotels with prices smallAFTER years of speculation Google has finally made its move into travel meta-search by offering hotel price comparison on Google Maps. “Today we started experimenting with a new feature, visible to a small  portion of users, by showing specific prices for selected hotel listings,” the company said. “When you search for hotels on Google Maps you’ll be able to enter the dates you plan to stay and see real prices on selected listings. You can click on the price to see a list of advertisers who have provided pricing information for that hotel, indicated by the “Sponsored” text, and click through to reserve a room on the advertiser’s site.” See full blog post.
