Each night, the Unofficial Guide collects almost 100,000 new hotel quotes from dozens of websites offering rooms in Orlando, for up to 10 months into the future. Because this information is so useful, we’ve created a simple search tool to help start your search for the best hotel bargains in Orlando. Click here to try the hotel search tool.
One thing that’s always bugged us about hotel search engines is that they never provide context around the rate they’re offering. Unless you’ve followed the market for six months, how are you supposed to know whether a $149 rate at the Marriott is a good deal or not?
Our new search tool fixes that problem by telling you what other people have paid for the exact same room, from every website, all throughout the year. You’ll be able to compare the rate you’re getting with the lowest, average, and highest rates over the past year. Using this information, you’ll be able to judge whether the rate you’re getting is good.
Since we’ve got a database of almost 40 million quotes, we’ll also predict whether the rate you’re quoted today is likely to go up, stay the same, or go down in price during the next week.
A couple of points:
1) The search tool works best for non-Disney hotels. We recommend a Disney-specialist travel agency for Disney hotels.
2) The search tool is new. Drop us a line if you notice anything odd happening.
3) Also let us know if you can’t get the rate shown from the vendor we quote. That shouldn’t happen very often.
Good luck with the hotel searches!
