Company

Business description: Room 77 makes it easy to find the hotel room that's right for you. We've mapped virtually every floor in a given hotel, so you can see for yourself how they're laid out. Don't like to be near the elevator? No problem. Prefer an ocean view? Got it. Explore a hotel with our maps and expert advice, from the comfort of your seat or the palm of your hand. What makes us experts? We're not just engineers or veterans of the hospitality industry; we're all deeply passionate about travel, and have stayed in countless hotel rooms over the years. And like you, we want to make the most out of every hotel stay. Our team has done extensive research about the hotels we feature, and we've also chatted up the front desk staff to get the inside scoop on the best rooms. All this, combined with a lot of algorithmic mumbo-jumbo enables us to show you the best (and worst) rooms based on your preferences. Don't get us wrong -- we love technology. But we believe our rating system should be dynamic, based on how travelers truly feel about their rooms. If you don't agree with how we've ranked the best rooms in your favorite hotel, we want to hear about it. Or if you've got a hot tip to share, let us know -- and feel free to contribute to our database by using your handy dandy mobile phone to upload photos, rate rooms, and share tips. Your fellow road warriors will thank you (we already like you).
