LOS ANGELES, Aug. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TopTenReviews.com announced its most recent results of reviews of online hotel booking service websites in the country. The top spot went to Priceline.com. Hotels.com was ranked second place. HotelReservations.com, a website owned and operated by Media Market Group LLC of Century City, California, placed third in this national review of the top ten hotel booking services offered online.
The review quoted some of the reasons that it chose HotelReservations.com ahead of more popular or better known brands: “Through partnerships, HotelReservations.com dabbles in other aspects of your vacation, like airfare and car rentals, but more than most other hotel booking sites we reviewed, the focus was on lodging.... The right hotel-booking site can help ensure you get the most for your money. We are convinced HotelReservations.com is the right hotel booking site for many people, especially those travelling abroad. This site works with over 120,000 hotels worldwide to find you the best hotel deals.”
Ravi Rao, President and CEO of Media Market Group LLC, said, “In the crowded field of online travel websites, being singled out and placed in the top three sites in the nation, particularly alongside such well known global brands, is most gratifying. Our goal is to make it quick and easy to find, research and book with the least amount of effort. Our innovative and hard-working team will take heed of the weaknesses that were cited in the review, find solutions and continue to pursue excellence. This endorsement will truly keep us motivated to further enhance user experience."
