The new design uses a grid and card interface that shows hotel cards sorted by your search filter. You can further filter down the search results on the map by zooming in and/or dragging the map around. You can also change your date range, price ranges, review ranges and more, as well as specify which amenities are required and more.
Why it matters? If you are a hotel provider, the design change to hotel search results in Google could impact your bookings. Keep an eye on the change, how your bookings and traffic change with it and make any necessary tweaks to improve your traffic from Google search.

This document presents details on the development of the 1 - 100 ENERGY STAR score for hotel properties. More information on the overall approach to develop ENERGY STAR scores is covered in our Technical Reference for the ENERGY STAR Score, available at www.energystar.gov/ENERGYSTARScore. The subsequent sections of this document offer specific details on the development of the ENERGY STAR score for hotels.
Then, for each city, we searched for the lowest rates each site could find at four specific downtown hotels in varying price ranges for a mid-week, shoulder-season stay three months out. By avoiding high-season or holiday spikes as well as last-minute discounts, we aimed for the most normal base prices.
Expedia, Travelocity, and Orbitz are corporate sister sites that deliver identical results. We went with Expedia, but the outcome will pretty much be the same at all three.
Property promotion is an ad format for hotel campaigns that allows advertisers to increase consideration of their property by promoting it into a prominent position in hotel search results. Property promotion ads aim to drive incremental outbound clicks, while retaining expected conversion rates and booking value.
Property promotion ads let you increase consideration of your property by promoting it at the top of search results. You can choose which properties to promote and set a bid that aligns with your business objectives.
An eligible impression is awarded for every active bid in the property promotion query geography (at the hotel city level) and is capped at the number of available ad positions for the Google Ads account.
With a share of more than 90% of the search market worldwide, Google should be a top priority for hotel marketers and revenue managers when it comes to being found online. The challenge is that hotel search results are often dominated by big hotel brands and online travel agencies (OTAs), driving organic listings down the page and making it harder for smaller, independent properties to compete.
As an independent hotel, you will need to work with a connectivity partner to set up and manage your Google Hotel Ads campaigns. A proud Google integration partner, Cloudbeds can automatically push your rates and availability to Google in real-time, increasing your visibility and direct bookings. We can help you activate your free booking link.
Levinson is one of thousands of poor, sick or highly vulnerable people left to languish and at times die in unstable, underfunded and understaffed residential hotel rooms overseen by a city department that reports directly to Mayor London Breed, a yearlong investigation by The San Francisco Chronicle found.
These properties have rooms that are often smaller than what the city allows for a standard parking space, in buildings where tenants typically share a bathroom and kitchen with neighbors. Many residents in these hotels struggle with drug addiction or have mental and physical disabilities, their lives upended by financial crises and other traumas.
Instead, at the hotel in the heart of the Tenderloin, ceilings have collapsed on tenants, thieves have stolen from their rooms, and bedbugs have left welts on their arms and legs, according to public records and interviews with 15 residents.
Beginning in the late 1940s, most of the properties were torn down or converted to make room for apartments, office buildings and tourist hotels. Many of those that remained fell into disrepair; welfare officials started using the rooms as shelter for the unemployed and elderly.
The arrangement, called master leasing, is a boon for building owners, who can secure more than $1 million in rent each year. About 15% of the leased SRO units were funded by the local health department and provided robust on-site support. The rest, including the Care Not Cash hotels, were overseen by the city Human Services Agency and offered much less help.
At the Hillsdale Hotel on Sixth Street, hot water was out for at least a week over the winter, prompting inspectors to call for an administrative hearing to speed repairs. Episcopal Community Services, a major supportive housing provider that manages the Hillsdale and Henry hotels, declined several requests for an interview.
Shaw, executive director of the Tenderloin Housing Clinic, said he regularly visited his hotels before the pandemic and did not see problems with maintenance and upkeep. When there are issues, Shaw said, his staff and the building owners address them as quickly as possible.
Under internal guidelines, HSH is supposed to conduct site visits at supportive housing programs that receive federal funding, like the Winton, if serious issues are identified. But records obtained by The Chronicle show that agency staff members have not physically inspected the hotel in more than three years.
In the past year, Breed has pledged to open buildings that look more like Kelly Cullen. Using a record $1.1 billion budget for homelessness services and a windfall in state grants, she plans to buy hotels with private bathrooms and, when possible, kitchenettes.
The $1.1 billion is earmarked almost completely for new programs, because much of the money comes from Prop. C. Just $14.2 million, or less than 2% of the funds, will go toward boosting services for residents in existing supportive housing hotels and apartments.
Then, in early 2017, Yates accepted a room at the Kelly Cullen Community. His kidney disease had made him eligible for the hotel, which housed homeless people with acute medical conditions. He asked his new case manager for a unit with a kitchen so he could eat healthy, and he asked to be able to see the sun.
Hotel Thacher, Main Street, Biddeford, 1955. Built in 1847 and opened as the "Biddeford House", this brick block with 100 rooms was the largest hotel in York County at the time. The name was later changed to honor Biddeford's famous Judge George Thacher, who was member of both the Continental Congress and then the first U.S. Congess in 1789.
Bryan A. Giglia, Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are pleased with our operating results in the third quarter which reflect continued strength in leisure travel and incremental growth in corporate and group demand. During the quarter, our operators aggressively grew room rates and delivered operating margins that were near pre-pandemic levels, despite rising costs. We are particularly encouraged by the increasing business volume we saw in September at our urban and group-oriented hotels which contributed to comparable portfolio monthly RevPAR that was above 2019 levels for the first time since the pandemic began. These positive trends have continued into October with our portfolio maintaining strong rates as occupancy continues to rebuild."
Mr. Giglia continued, "During the third quarter, we successfully allocated capital by making strategic investments in our portfolio, initiating a value enhancing repositioning of our recently acquired resort in Miami and returning additional capital to our shareholders. We recently completed the guestroom renovation at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco and continued to advance the Westin conversion at our hotel in Washington, DC. These internal investments are expected to provide strong returns by enabling the hotels to better capture additional business as corporate and group events increasingly return to these markets. We are pleased with the initial performance of our recently acquired hotel in Miami, which is pacing ahead of expectations leading up to the start of its transformation to Andaz Miami Beach next year. Additionally, we continue to return capital to our shareholders through quarterly dividends and additional share repurchases. Our balance sheet retains capacity for additional capital deployment, and we continue to explore ways to recycle capital into higher growth opportunities."
