From there, you can choose your city and travel dates, and request amenities. Members can personalize their booking experience by filtering hotels based on their amenity preference. All members signed in via Facebook Connect automatically have their profile photo sent to the hotel for inclusion on the GM’s VIP List and instant recognition upon check-in.
Also, members can discover who within their Facebook friend network has recommended a particular hotel. Recommendations and reviews can also be posted to the member’s Facebook Timeline.
