Here’s an interesting site for those that hold elite status with travel brands and/or have a large social media following. Hotelied was created as a “’dating site’ for hotel stays that matches travelers with a curated selection of hotels and discounted rates.” Hotelied offers exclusive rates tailored specifically to members’ profiles, and they currently have a network of hotels in New York, Los Angeles, Miami and Palm Springs, with a larger (and international) rollout planned over the next year. From the website:
“Hotelied members begin the process by creating a travel profile, which includes their frequent flier and hotel loyalty programs as well as their LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter profiles, with Instagram to follow shortly. Hotelied culls the information together, while keeping it confidential. Once a member is ready to search for travel he or she may enter travel dates or a destination to see the rates that various hotels will offer. From here, Hotelied compares the member’s search parameters and profile with that of the hotels’, and finally provides hotel options for the member to select. As the Hotelied system does all the matching, members’ profiles are never shared with the hotel partners. Members may decline to enter information into their travel profile, but the more information they provide, the more likely they will be to gain access to a wide variety of exclusive rates.”
Every hotel’s dashboard is apparently different, meaning each one offers different rates to different members, as designated by the hotel. An interesting concept. Have you used it?
