Have you ever felt that it would be great if you could find some honest and frank reviews of the hotels that you come across? Well, here comes the Oyster Hotel Reviews blog that publishes client-oriented hotel review and advices. The blog is aimed to help you escape all the trappings of the hotel websites and see into the real truth about the hotel. The blog makes use of the experiences and the incidents that its professional reporters face in various hotels. There are over 600 undercover hotel reviews in the blog and a reliable source of information on the hotels.
The blog makes for an interesting and entertaining read and the “Photo Fakeouts” feature is one of the most popular features in the blog. In this feature, the undercover reporters of Oyster are assigned to take photos in the hotels, which are then compared with the often-misleading marketing pictures that hotels have put up on their websites. The “Bundle Breakdowns” is yet another popular feature in the blog where the benefits, as well the drawbacks of the hotel are meticulously broken up and explained.
The Oyster Hotel Reviews blog is headed by Jenna Bromberg who is the former Editor of the industry blog HotelChatter. She is assisted by her Oyster reporter Paul Brady, the former Editor of the widely read travel blog Jaunted. The entire team at Oyster Hotel Reviews is an extremely talented bunch. Indeed, the reviews in the blog manage to provide accurate, useful, honest and authoritative insight into the hotels.
