This is cool. A friend forwarded to me this Techcrunch article about a startup website called EveryLodge. EveryLodge presents a clean Kayak-like interface to help you find flash-sale hotel deals. These are the hotel deals you find on sites like SniqueAway, Groupon Getaways, TripAlertz, LivingSocial, etc. Besides being a helpful website, this startup seems to have found a way around legal barriers to consolidating data from these sites. It will be interesting to see if the site survives legal challenges. I hope so, because after spending a few minutes with it I’ve found it quite helpful.
With an upcoming trip to Paris in mind, I was able to use this site to quickly filter by location:
I saw that there were two hotel deals in Paris. However, when I put in the dates of travel (in August), the deals disappeared. This wasn’t at all surprising since these flash sales tend to be near term deals, but it was very cool that I could determine that so quickly and easily. Nice job EveryLodge.
