With the holiday season around the corner, Google plans to make your user experience more comfortable by updating Google Hotel Search for desktop with their Material Theme.
With the addition of the Google Material Theme, a lot more information can be fit on the canvas. From the main Search results page, if you search for a city along with the word “hotel”, a card that includes a map and list of places to stay appears.
When you click a result, a new page with tabs for an overview, prices, reviews, about, and photos of the hotel appears. You can also see information like availability, ratings, and location summary with things to do at a glance.
There’s also a fullscreen price comparison tool, reviews that feature a search capability, about with hotel amenities listed, and more photos.
