Google has been ramping up its transportation search features for desktop and mobile, but now it is shifting into full on travel mode with its Hotel Finder experiment.
The Next Web reports that the utility is “designed to help users find the perfect hotel.” Easier said than done, of course, but maybe something that Google creates is just crazy enough to work.
Google’s Hotel Finder (not to be confused with HotelFinder.com) can find the ideal accommodation for a particular user based on a few different priorities, such as location and budget. For example, when searching for where to stay, the user can draw shapes around neighborhoods using a mouse rather than searching by individual addresses.
