Hotels.com gets a makeover

The folks from Hotels.com came into the office yesterday to show off their site's latest tricks. Their site now allows you to filter results by price range, amenity, property type, guest reviews, and (hotel.com's) ratings. Every one of their 75,000 hotel, condo, and B&B; listings also has a new interactive map, which can help you figure out the distance—both walking and driving—to most addresses and landmarks. There's also a calendar that's color-coded to give you a rough sense of the hotel's recent rates (orange is expensive, green is cheap, yellow is in-between). Thankfully, in May, Hotels.com stopped charging its onerous—their word, not mine—$25 cancellation/change fee in May. A tip: You can find exclusive weekly deals in their Tuesday e-newsletters.
