One of my biggest pieces of advice for booking a hotel has always been to ask yourself why. And the answer should be beyond the obvious “I need a place to stay for the night”.
Because millions of people are booking into hotels every night. But how many of them are actually getting their choice right?
For instance, you’ve researched an amazing place for a couples getaway, but realized on check-in that it’s popular among families, and a very noisy resort. Or you’ve booked a dull business hotel, when you were looking for colorful nightlife.
It happens more often than you might think, despite having amazing resources and insight which allows us to research these things.
How to Book Hotels That Match Your Travel Style Perfectly
Spoiler Alert: We’ve discovered a new hotel search engine which has 1.2 million hotels at rates cheaper than any other online booking site (seriously). And, by crunching data about your interests, it matches you with hotels which reflect your travel style.
The Importance of the Right Hotel
It’s not good enough to book the right hotel anymore – if you want a memorable vacation you need to book the right hotel for you.
You need to know who is leaving a glowing review (are they a business traveler, couple, backpacker, family etc), and what the hotel is excellent for. You need to answer why you’re traveling, identify your interests, and ask why a hotel has been given a rave review.
At this stage I can hear you thinking “crap. That’s a lot more research for me to do”. Because in the long list of hotel search engines out there, not one of them asks you about your interests, and crunches big data to find the perfect hotel for you.
Though I stand corrected on that statement, because that, in a nutshell, is Nustay; a new hotel booking engine which matches search results to your travel preferences … and it doesn’t hurt that they offer the cheapest prices on more than 1.2 million hotels too!

Nustay.com: How it Works
Nustay.com promises unbelieveable discounts on your dream vacation, and the best hotel experience of your life. A bold claim, but they don’t lie.
From first impressions, the platform is like any other hotel booking site. It’s a search engine which operates in the same way you’re used to, except that the results are personalized to match your interests and travel style. And except for it’s prices. It offers some of the best hotel rates I’ve seen in a long time.
With over 1.2 million resorts and hotels available to choose from, Nustay is one of the largest hotel search engines online, and they offer discounts of up to 72% on market price.
Wondering why you haven’t heard of it? It’s fairly new. But with a unique twist on a very well established market, I dare say you’ll soon be using Nustay over your other bookmarked sites.

A membership website, you’ll be prompted to sign up for an account (it’s free). After having registered, you can link your social media profiles, fill in your interests, and rate what’s important to you in a hotel room. This strengthens your profile, and is data used to find you the best hotel.
You enter your location, your travel dates, the number of rooms you’re after, and hit search. You’ll get search results based on what’s important to you, with options to filter based on your type of vacation, ie romantic, party, family, or a wellness retreat. The more of a match you are with a hotel, the higher the discount you receive.
Too Good to Be True?
Let’s be honest, it’s a claim that most hotel search engines make, so when we hear that a hotel search engine claims to offer better prices than other third party booking sites, I’m skeptical.
It would take a fresh and creative approach to the established business model to be able to offer big enough savings and incentives to pull people away from their already bookmarked sites.
But using big data, advanced algorithms and data from social media to match travelers with hotels according to their preferences, Nustay has a unique twist on a very well-established market. By personalizing the current way we book hotels, I can see it disrupting the hotel industry as we know it today.
And, after having extensively compared their prices, they really do offer the lowest hotel rates.

Why Their Prices are so Amazing
For travelers, the advantage of Nustay hotels is obvious; as a hotel guest, why wouldn’t you want to find the perfect hotel at the best price?
But hotels are benefiting too; by providing guests that are most likely to enjoy the facilities and style the hotel offers, Nustay is able to bring hotels guests that spend more time in the resorts and enjoy the services that they offer. Leading to a better experience for everyone involved.
Thus Nustay have been able to secure the planet’s lowest prices simply because of their ability to tell if guests and hotels match. And this makes it something truly unique to the market.
