Twenty months on from its initial launch of hotel rate predicting, Hopper is applying some of the secret sauce learned from flights to its hotel search and booking service.

The inventory comes from a number of different suppliers and also via direct relationships with properties in 1,600 cities globally.

The standard online travel agency metrics is not something that Hopper is shouting about with its latest announcement - moreover how it is introducing a number of particular features that have been implemented elsewhere in the company.

Hopper has tracked historic rates and combined them with real-time pricing to "accurately forecast prices" for its inventory.

It claims users will be able to also secure private rates for properties that are nor ordinarily available online.

Other cheaper prices from package products, member-only, geo-fenced, closed user and pre-purchased block rates are also secured via the app, the company says.

The artificial intelligence-led tech behind the scenes will also learn preferences over time to create personalized recommendations for a user in a destination.
