The 'who' behind the hotel review

February 24, 2008|Vani Rangachar

Travelpost.com, acquired by Sidestep.com in 2006, is another entrant into the hotel review world.

What's hot: It tries to do what TripAdvisor.com does: provide user reviews of hotels. But Travelpost adds profiles of the users, so you'll know the gender, age, the type of traveler (budget or luxury) and whether he or she was traveling for leisure or business. I loved the listing of Wi-Fi in airports and their charges.

What's not: The site does not have the volume of listings and reviews that TripAdvisor does. A search for hotels in Fiji turned up nada; no luck either for the Ritz-Carlton in Laguna Niguel. I saw only two reviews (both negative) on the Beverly Wilshire. For now, I'll stick with TripAdvisor.
