Website Consolidates Hotel Reviews
If you feel compelled to research hotels before you stay in them but hate all the time it takes to sift through countless traveler reviews, Raveable (raveable.com) may be able to help. Using patent-pending technology, the site automatically categorizes and recommends hotels based on summaries of millions of traveler reviews across various other sites. It reveals opinions buried inside of reviews, so users can see rants and raves about a hotel’s location, service, rooms and other amenities at a glance. Raveable does not enable travelers to write reviews, but instead describes itself as “Cliff Notes for hotel reviews,” with abbreviated versions of reviews found on such sites as TripAdvisor and MyTravelGuide. Raveable covers more than 33,000 U.S. hotels, resorts and bed-and-breakfasts.
