Support Skift’s Independent Journalism

Did you know? Skift has newsrooms in New York and London and full-time editors in Singapore, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, too.

The last 5 years have seen a major shift in the way travelers search for hotels online.

Some years ago when the traveler emancipated from Travel Agents and started doing their own hotel search the typical search could would have started with a broad query such as “Hotel in New York” and then drill down from there, as the traveler created their shortlist of hotels.

Not so anymore
