Room photos not enough? Site offers videos of hotels

September 02, 2007|By Vani Rangachar | Vani Rangachar,Los Angeles Times

Now there's a Web site where you can check out hotel rooms before you book. will show you videos of hotels in 13 European cities.

High-quality videos show exteriors, lobbies, dining areas and guest rooms, including bathrooms.

You can choose hotels by price range from no dollars (no dice) to $600 a night. Listings include ratings and comments, and Google maps showing location.

I saw some surprises, including London's Kensington Close Hotel & Spa at $187 a night.

To check availability, you're redirected to partner sites, and gets commissions for bookings. But I couldn't get the rate on dates I tried in September.
