Google’s Hotel Finder now helps you find a room near your favorite landmark

Google’s Hotel Finder now helps you find a room near your favorite landmark

Launched last July, Google’s experimental Hotel Finder just got itself a brand new feature, making it easier to narrow down your choice of hotels when you’re traveling.

The tool, which makes it easy to find hotels, shows you their location on a map, as well as additional details including location, rate, images and reviews. Google also makes it easy to find out where to go to book your stay at the best price.

Google has just announced a new feature which allows you to search for hotels all over the world, based on their distance from a specific location of your choice.

The feature will come in handy for just about anyone – from businessmen who want to find a hotel close to the city centre, to tourists who want to be close to the city’s most popular attractions.

To use the new feature, all you have to do is search for a landmark or address in the area you want to stay. Google’s Hotel Finder will show only the hotels that can get you to that exact spot in 20 minutes, using public transport.

You can tweak the results depending on your preference, changing the time it takes to get there to anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes, and you can also choose walking distance, as opposed to how long it takes to get there via public transport.

In addition to finding hotels using time as your search parameter, you can also look up hotels in a selected area, or in popular areas.
