Dec 25, 2007
Hotel booking has undergone a sea change in recent times. Even the traditional way of online hotel booking has been vastly better off with a lot of modern facilities and services added in. One of the pioneers of this concept of new hotel booking is undoubtedly hotel booking system, have not wasted anytime to add their own frills and laces to the routine online reservation method. Here we take a look at some of these new features that have been put into place, largely due to the famousness of hotel booking agencies and such various websites.

1. Careful attention to user preferences.
Till not very long ago, online hotel booking meant selecting a hotel from a list of hotels and other staying facilities present on a website, and making the payments, etc. But now, online booking is not just a one way process; it has become much more interactive. The online booking process is supplemented with a strong team of expert people, who would speak with the clients and suggest to them the exact kind of hotel they are looking for. Clients are meant to put in their requirements, and then a team of people analyze those requirements and come up with the best suited option. Not only does this help in saving costs, but it also provide the kind of stay the client really wants.

2. Providing good value for money.
Most of these online services for hotel accommodations are globally operative. They have complete relations with most hotels around the world. When they place the hotels on their online catalog, they are providing a good international visibility for the hotel. Hence, you could say that the website does much more for the hotel than the hotel do for the website. It is not unexpected, therefore, that the hotels do not mind giving a few concessions to the websites. These concessions are passed on to the clients. Hotel connect, in special, provides as much as 50% off on the rates of the hotels for people booking through the website.

3. Not just online services.
Today's online hotel booking services are not just online. They employ teams of people who follow up with the hotels from across the world, and actually solicit them to join their ranks. The focus is not just on the topnotch five and four star hotels as it was until a few decades ago. On hotel connect, you will even find lots of two and three star hotels. All this becomes good for the clients who are looking for an economical stay. These teams of people even act as advisors to the clients and as negotiators when they drive good bargains with the hotels listed on the website.

4. Extremely quick service and guidance on the stay.
Other thing is that the websites will not leave you in the lurch once the booking is done. You can coolly forget those past years when you had to wait for weeks to get the tickets of your online booked hotels. With hotel connect and such services, the top booking time delay are two days. Also, you will get a detailed guide on how to reach the place, a brochure of the place, a city map and other relevant information.

5. Customer follow-up and feedback.
Even when your stay is over, you continue being considerable to the hotel booking online. They will ask your feedback and your reviews, and might even put it up on their websites to guide other people.
