  1. Traveling and exploring new places is a passion of ours at MapQuest. And as any traveler knows, finding the right place to stay during a trip can make all the difference.

    Since February, users have been able to book hotels directly on MapQuest. Today we’ve rolled out our first major innovation on that product:  Hotels at Destination. With Hotels at Destination the hotel booking experience is seamlessly integrated into the MapQuest experience.

    When you search for a long route, we now suggest hotels at your destination that might interest you:

    Hotels on Map - Pin at Destination

    When you click to see the hotels, they are now arranged on a map taking into account distance from your destination. You can then sort them by price and popularity:

    And you can then check out hotel details:

    We’re very proud of the new hotel search functionality. We’re continuing to innovate on this product and you will see improvements in the near future.
