Hotel Shopping Enhancements

Travelers often have travel preferences/policy settings configured that exclude or prohibit results. This leads travelers to believe the inventory is unavailable or that the tool is not working. The new centralized messaging section located above the hotel options will provide additional information to the traveler.

Previously, certain room types could be removed from hotel results using policy. Unfortunately, travelers wonder why certain rooms they saw on off-channel sites did not exist in our option set. When a room violates policy, a new message has been introduced at the top of the room results. The message clarifies out-of-policy rooms are now available to be viewed, but not booked, at the bottom of the room list.

Dynamic Hotel Filtering

Filters may be selected to narrow the result set. The number of properties available for the remaining unselected filters will be show in (xx).

In the above screenshot, there are no Choice Family properties available that also meet the selected criteria of having 4 Crown Ratings. The shown message will appear when the user hovers over the Choice Family filter. This enables travelers/travel planners to quickly narrow their search results.

In Policy Filter

Previously, travelers would not see properties that violate policy. This led to dissatisfaction with the tool because they believed the tool was not returning all results. Travelers can now filter down to only show properties that are compliant with policy. Alternately, they will be able to deselect it to see all properties, including those that violate policy.
