Finding a great hotel with all the amenities in a central location is usually fairly easy. If you’re like many travelers, the real challenge is making sure you’re getting the best rate when booking your hotel stay. Hundreds of hotel booking sites claim to offer the lowest rates, but only DealAngel compares hotels and provides insight into which properties are offering the best value on any given night.
Type in the name of your destination to get started researching hotel deals on DealAngel, then click on the dates when you’re planning to travel. DealAngel will present you with a color-coded calendar, which shows which dates are the most and least expensive in the town you’ve chosen. Click “Go” to see a map with markers that show the locations of all the hotels available during your trip. In addition to its maps, DealAngel also lays out hotels individually with prices, and uses a grading system to show how good of a deal you’ll be getting at each property. A $100 room at the Hilton isn’t necessarily a better deal than a $150 room at the Marriott, which is why DealAngel’s rating system comes in handy when comparing value versus price.
To come up with its ratings, DealAngel tracks daily price fluctuations at thousands of hotels. The app then automatically compares this pricing data to other factors like location, amenities, and ratings to determine where the real deals are hiding. The information DealAngel uses comes from dozens of hotel websites, and visitors are directed back to those sites – and away from DealAngel – when it comes time to actually make their reservations.
