NewswireToday - /newswire/ - Palo Alto, CA, United States, 2005/10/06 - The November 2005 issue of Consumer Reports directs readers to "hotelshark.com" to "get travelers' opinions" on hotels. The recommendation is the latest in a string from major publications this year. .

The piece highlights problems with printed travel guides that use star-based rating systems. Inconsistencies between different star schemes "can lead to letdowns once you’ve checked in." As the article notes, "you can’t always count on the stars to guide you."

HotelShark.com has never used a multiple star-based rating system. Instead, the site awards fins to hotels that are reviewed, on the whole, positively by guests. A fin appears as a small, gray icon to the left of a hotel’s name within a given city index on hotelshark.com. The fin system gives travelers a quick way to find well-liked hotels in a given area.

The Consumer Reports recommendation is the latest in a string from major publications this year. Last month, the Washington Post called HotelShark.com a "widely used" trove of "up-to-date information." In May, the New York Times advised business travelers to Europe to visit the site to “learn as much as you can about the accommodations.” The Chicago Tribune called HotelShark.com an "unbiased" source of hotel "reviews written by real-world travelers." And in January, London's The Independent (UK) called HotelShark.com one of the ten best travel websites in the world.

HotelShark.com is not affiliated with any of the aforementioned publications.
