Knowing that a source of anxiety for travelers can be whether the travel experience will live up to expectation, hotels in each Collection are determined using a combination of data sources to reveal the best quality and best value hotels in spectacular destinations. Travelers can browse accommodations by the type of travel experience they desire and by destination, making finding a great place to stay easier than ever. "We know travelers spend an immense amount of time researching accommodation, from reading reviews to checking multiple sites for peace of mind on price, location and quality," says Dan Reed, Expedia's vice president of merchandising. "We created Collections to do all that work for you. When selecting the criteria for these properties we wanted to ensure our customers could confidently book from a Collection type, knowing that that would be the exact kind of holiday they would receive and the quality and value would be excellent. These are all hotels which are backed by our customer reviews, fit the type of holiday the customer is looking for and are a great value, helping travelers find the best hotel for every experience."
