The “book it now” option allows users to choose from several room types and pay the current best available rate online. The “bidding” option gives users the chance to decide the rate they would like to pay.

Whether people are visiting friends and family, traveling for work or simply looking for a getaway, independent and boutique hotels almost always guarantee travelers enviable locations, distinctive esthetics and unparalleled service.
