Last week, I took an overnight business trip to Nashville, Tennessee for a meeting. It's not the most glamorous or exciting way to travel, especially when you're in and out in one night. My office is very mindful of budget issues and we try to save money whenever possible. So, how do you plan for a trip that doesn't cost an arm and a leg and provides the creature comforts that you need to work?
Enter Room 77.
Room 77 is a new hotel search website that allows users to find excellent deals gleaned from the top hotel search functions, narrowing the searches by specific parameters set by the user. Need wifi? No problem. Room 77 finds the cheapest options in the locations you want with free wifi. Want a free breakfast? Narrow your search to only include those that include breakfast in the price (a great feature for families who travel). You can also search for special rates, like AAA or Senior discounts if you want to. You can narrow your search by the amenities you want, the star-rating of the hotel, and the Trip Advisor score.
What I really liked about Room 77 is that all the information is displayed on one page, and shows Room 77 deals along with deals from other vendors like Expedia and Orbitz. Instead of searching through ten different sites for the very best deal available, Room 77 does all the work for you, showing the best deals first. I have used other search engines that do this, but open ten different windows at a time, which was way too much seizure-inducing activity on my screen. I liked Room 77's clean, easy user interface.
In addition to narrowing searches by amenities and price, Room 77 also allows users to research hotel layouts and room views, and availability of parking and shuttle service as well. They also offer an exclusive Room Concierge service with fast checkout on 4 to 5-star hotels or stays more than $400.
Whether you're planning an extended family vacation or a quick business trip like I was, Room 77 will give you all the tools you need to plan your trip and choose a hotel that is right for your needs and within your budget. Room 77 also has a convenient iPhone app, so you can make plans right from your phone.
Never wonder whether you’ve gotten the best deal on your hotel room again. Check out Room 77 when planning your next travel adventure!
