Start-up Room 77 lets you see your hotel-room view before you arrive
Travelers: Ever walk into your hotel room and let out a sigh of extreme sadness when you saw the view of an ugly concrete parking garage?
If you answered yes, then you’ll definitely want to know about Room 77, which publicly launches its searchable website and iPhone app (above) today. Hotel Check-In already spoke with founder and board chairman Brad Gerstner to give you the scoop immediately.
USA TODAY Travel also assembled a photo gallery that illustrates just how widely views can vary in a single hotel and among a single room type, such as a “deluxe king.”
The database – already being lauded by tech savvy Starwood – is expected to be useful for both business travelers who like to get the most for their money (including VIP views), and vacationers who may may have saved up for two years to go on their dream Hawaii vacation.
