Google’s Hotel Finder is now a little more mobile as the company has ported its desktop site to mobile-ready. Visit and search for your destination by price, hotel class, user rating and distance. You can also look up hotel amenities, photos, reviews and locations on a map. Once you find the perfect match, you can jump right into any of Google’s booking partners and seal the deal.

You want to save more time you say? Well fine then, how about using Google Wallet to complete your reservation by looking for “Buy with Google” for any Google Wallet-ready partner. If you don’t have Google Wallet, have no fear as you can enter the payment info once you book your first hotel and Google Wallet will save your information so you don’t need to enter it back in every time. 

Google’s Hotel Finder service is available in more than 100 countries on both desktop and mobile. Use of Google Wallet to book hotels is only available in the US and Google says it has plans to “expand more broadly soon.” Google’s hotel finding service is similar to their Flight Explorer, in that its another service that is not a distinct part of their search service and seems like an offshoot Google project they may incorporate directly into search in the future.
