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.

As you remember, back in FebruaryHotel Search on mobile refined the lookup algorithm, price filtering, and other aspects. The new update for the desktop version brings “modern look and feel.”

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. 

Search results page with queries featuring a city and “hotel” appear in card.

Viewing all the hotels on the list or expanding the map will yield a full screen page where rounded boxes with thin outlines are present throughout from the map to cards for hotels.
