Expedia deploys Google Streetview for new hotel search system
Expedia is taking hotel search and user experience extremely seriously it appears with the launch of a new system that combines search, maps and Google Streetview.
The ExpediaHotelView project was developed in the UK and will probably be rolled out to other Expedia country sites after a testing period.
Run within a microsite, HotelView allows the user to search for a location or individual hotel. Relevant properties from the Expedia system around the world are plotted on a Google Map and the user can browse information about each hotel.
