    I used the "Mystery" hotels a few times in the UK, but it was always easy to work out which hotel it was prior to booking, so no mystery, just a hefty discount.
    Now, though, it is much harder to work it out.

    My statement is based on anecdotal evidence from three sources.

    1. A Wotif hotel advertiser commented that they are getting increasing bookings through Wotif and now always have some inventory set aside for Wotif customers.

    2. A Wotif senior manager indicated that they are growing their corporate business and hope that the integration of the airfare business will improve this. Their annual report is showing 140,000 rooms sold per week.

    3. Businesses that I speak with in the SME sector have a growing acceptance and use of Wotif on business travel.

    4.
    Hitwise awarding Wotif.com the number 1 ranking in the “Travel – Destinations & Accommodation”
    (http://www.wotifgroup.com/images/200...ual_report.pdf)

    Hope that helps but unfortunately nothing in hard figures.

    Re: Wot Hotels

    I would agree that many SMBs are using WOTIF, in the mistaken belief they are getting a good deal, more often than not they are getting non flexible rates at prices that are flexible when booked elsewhere. Regardless it is a handy reference for working out what is available in a location!

    Re: Wot Hotels

    Note that the Wot hotels change, for instance the 5 stars in adelaide go from 2 to 1 to none over the next few months, so working out what it will be in May is a little bit hard, at least the choices are limited compared to bigger cities.

    The timeliness of information is always important. That is what I was thinking with a dedicated Wot Hotel thread. ie

    The 5 Star Wotif Hotel this week[insert date] in Adelaide is XYZ.

    Re: Wot Hotels

    Does anyone happen to know for sure if the Wot Hotel for Wellington is the Holiday Inn Wellington?

    I suspect it is, but without being sure I won't book through wotif as I have never been to Wellington before so don't want to end up somewhere I don't like and don't know the location !

    If you are not worried about points why not use the IHG Family and Friends program:

    InterContinental Hotels Group | Friends and Family

    Its actually $10 a night cheaper than the mystery deal (which does look like its the HI):

    THANKS!

    I had no idea about the family and friends deal...awesome

    AFF does it again!

    EDIT For my night its $5.50 more expensive than the Wot Hotel deal per night, but with the booking fee its only $5, and this way I'm guaranteed the hotel I want! Thanks again!
