Uncover the truth about hotels with Oyster.com
[tools / technology / travel]
Oyster.com has a team of “special investigators” who “visit, photograph, review and rate each hotel.” Why? Because, like people, hotels choose to put their best foot forward when it comes to selling their services. They share the most flattering pictures - even if they’re old or from an angle that doesn’t tell the whole story. (I’m looking at all you with Facebook profile pictures from more than a year ago!) Oyster calls them out and makes sure you aren’t stuck with a bad vacation. Hopefully, TripAdvisor buys them so we won’t have yet another site to visit before booking travel ;)
Side note: I still don’t understand why their website is Oyster.com. Can someone explain??
