DealAngel – Find Vacation Values

Finding a great hotel with all the amenities in a central location is usually fairly easy. If you’re like many travelers, the real challenge is making sure you’re getting the best rate when booking your hotel stay. Hundreds of hotel booking sites claim to offer the lowest rates, but only DealAngel compares hotels and provides insight into which properties are offering the best value on any given night.

Type in the name of your destination to get started researching hotel deals on DealAngel, then click on the dates when you’re planning to travel. DealAngel will present you with a color-coded calendar, which shows which dates are the most and least expensive in the town you’ve chosen. Click “Go” to see a map with markers that show the locations of all the hotels available during your trip. In addition to its maps, DealAngel also lays out hotels individually with prices, and uses a grading system to show how good of a deal you’ll be getting at each property. A $100 room at the Hilton isn’t necessarily a better deal than a $150 room at the Marriott, which is why DealAngel’s rating system comes in handy when comparing value versus price.

To come up with its ratings, DealAngel tracks daily price fluctuations at thousands of hotels. The app then automatically compares this pricing data to other factors like location, amenities, and ratings to determine where the real deals are hiding. The information DealAngel uses comes from dozens of hotel websites, and visitors are directed back to those sites – and away from DealAngel – when it comes time to actually make their reservations.

Practical Uses:

  • Find a great deal on a hotel near Disneyland
  • Splurge on a luxury hotel when rooms come down in price
  • Save your company money when booking corporate travel
  • Feel confident that you aren’t being taken advantage of when booking an upcoming vacation

Insider Tips:

  • Visitors can select a specific travel date or a range of potential dates
  • DealAngel gets its data from 30 hotel websites
  • DealAngel tracks price changes on a daily basis
  • The web-app gets a cut of the profit when people book rooms through links on the DealAngel site

What we liked:

  • People who use DealAngel can be confident they aren’t getting ripped off
  • The web-app is free for anyone to use
  • DealAngel takes other factors into account besides room price
  • DealAngel finds people the best overall value, not just the cheapest price

What we didn’t like:

  • DealAngel only searches 30 hotel websites, which means the web-app could be missing out on valuable data elsewhere on the web

  1. Great review of our service! Just a slight correction: globally we search upwards of 100 different channels, not just 30. For the US, 30 sites give a solid coverage of the market, as many hotels are only present on 4-5 sites. We are also adding new channels all the time, including special rates only accessible via log-in. Stay tuned!

  7. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
