Most times when you’re looking for a hotel, you’re looking for a room in a specific place. When I’m booking hotels in a known destination, I often will use Award Mapper
(SEE ALSO: Award Mapper – finding hotel rooms)
But there are also cases when you’re taking a longer road trip, and you need intermediate hotels along the way. In that case, IHG has a way to find hotels along a route
This is from the main IHG.com site, but there is a similar link on all the brand pages (HolidayInn.com, etc.). Once you click the link, you’re taken to a page where you can enter your origin and destination, along with a few other filters, such as specific brands to include/exclude, distance from route, etc.
You can zoom in and around, and it will show you the different hotel options that you have to find hotels along a route.
Other hotel sites that let you find hotels along a route
There are other hotel brands that also give you the ability to find hotels along a route. Here’s a screenshot from La Quinta, showing their ability to find hotels along a route
I actually like La Quinta’s interface a little better, as they don’t group the hotels, letting you individually pick out the hotels that you find along a route
According to Internet research, Marriott used to have the ability to find hotels on a route, but no longer offers it. I also could not find any ways to find hotels along a route for Club Carlson, Best Western, Hilton, SPG / Sheraton or Hyatt.
Did you know about the ability that certain hotel chains have to find hotels along a route? Did I miss any chains that offer it? Let us know in the comments
