Press for Room 77

Last June Ireviewed the hotel site Room77.comand its feature of showing the view from specific rooms in a hotel. It is kind of like SeatGuru for hotels. has grown over the past year with new features. The website now loads a more traditional looking hotel rate search homepage. Room77 is a metasearch engine that compares rates from different hotel booking sites in the way functions, but with more useful search capabilities for the loyalty traveler seeking hotel points and group rates.

We're doing our best to keep up with the ever-shifting landscape of hotel booking sites, but there's certainly been a lot to keep track of! The latest: Room 77, which made a name for itself by being able to match up guests with the exact room they want, is now allowing guests to earn loyalty points from bookings made through Room 77. In other words, you no longer have to choose between the convenience of window-shopping for hotel rooms and the satisfaction of using the hotel's loyalty program.
