getaroom.com, new booking site from the founders of hotels.com
Internet veterans Bob Diener and David Litman have launched new hotel rooms booking site www.getaroom.com which promises some outstanding savings on room rates. These are the guys that founded Hotels.com back in the day. For their new venture, they're claiming that rates will be 50% lower than most, and at times even lower, meaning the rates would be the world's cheapest hotel room rates!
Even better, pricing and the property you'll be staying at are completely transparent (take that, PriceLine!). So when booking the traveler will have peace of mind and knowing that if a pool is necessary, a pool they'll get.
There are three ways to save with getaroom.com:
- Everyday low rates for savings of 50 percent off regular rates
- Unpublished rates offering discounts for an additional 10 percent to 50 percent in savings
- Daily deals enable travelers to save yet another 10 percent to 40 percent off their hotel rooms compared to internet rates offered by other websites
Getaroom offers hotel rooms in only the most popular destinations and the properties that offer the best values. This means travelers can avoid the clutter and confusion of most other sites. There's even a U.S.-based call center if the online customer service isn't enough for the traveler.
Getaroom currently offers accommodations only in nine U.S. cities: Anaheim, Los Angeles, Boston, Orlando, Miami, San Diego, Chicago, New Orleans, San Francisco, Las Vegas, New York City and Washington, D.C. More cities should be added soon, we'd hope.
