Oyster.com Checks-in to 40 More Cities in Three Months
Special Hotel Investigators Visit, Photograph, Review and Rate Each Hotel, Uncovering the Truth, before it's "uh-oh" Time
NEW YORK, December 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Oyster.com, the hotel tell-all, has been keeping its hotel investigators busy the last three months. They've been trotting the globe, investigating nearly 600 hotels in 40 new cities, and photographing all the dirty little details that hotel websites won't show you. The fast-growing hotel authority now features 80+ vacation destinations, and thousands of hotel reviews.
The hotel investigators at Oyster.com know more about hotels than anyone else. How? Because they've been to each one, personally. They rate and review each hotel and compare it to all the others in its class. They take hundreds of accurate photos of every property, so that travelers know exactly what they're booking into.
"The more hotels we visit around the world, the clearer it becomes how necessary Oyster is. Having been around the world for Oyster, I know how important the opinion of our experts is - after all, this is a product you can't see before you buy and can't return once you arrive," says Elie Seidman, Co-founder and CEO of Oyster.com. "Unlike other hotel review sites, we send our own expert investigators to figure it all out. Our experts see all the hotels and compare them to each other. They know which hotels really are the best. On Oyster, you're not just going to find a good hotel - you're going to find the best one for you. It's a second opinion you need to have to ensure you're going to have the very best possible hotel stay."
