Now this is a great little website for the seasoned traveller. is a website that provides a map based facility to allow you to find hotels on a map. I had a quick play using New York as an example as this is where we will be heading off to in July of this year.

The website allows you to search for a location by using either the search facility or the drop down boxes provided. Once you have selected your location the map adjusts to your selection and all the hotels in that city or town will appear on the map as little orange icons. If you hold your mouse over the icons you can view the name of the hotel and if you want more info on that hotel a little pop box appears with more detail. You can then click on the link in the pop up box to book the hotel.

The map also shows places of interest as blue icons which is excellent if you are wanting to stay close to a particular attraction as all the hotels surrounding that attraction will be shown on the map.

I love the Satellite option. Once this button is clicked the map changes to a Google Earth style view so you can actually see your hotel from above as if you were looking down from a plane. You can also zoom in to see even more detail.

The Hybrid button is also another great option. When this button is selected you can view the Google Earth view with all the street names so you can see exactly where you are.
