Hotel Mapping is a process of curating hotel content data such as hotel addresses, hotel policies, geolocations, zip codes, and general descriptions. Hotel Mapping tools curate this data coming from different sources by merging property IDs and creating one unified ID to avoid duplicate and inconsistent listings.     

Due to the enormity of the hospitality distribution market, hotel data duplication becomes inevitable. Duplication happens when Online Travel Agencies source hotel data from multiple channels like bed banks, global distribution systems, channel managers, and other travel businesses.     

Usually, a hotel mapping tool curates the following details:   

  • Hotel Address    
  • Hotel Contact Information    
  • Zip Code   
  • Geo-Location Code   
  • Hotel Description    
  • Hotel Policies, etc.    

The hotel mapping tools allow you to gain control over the information mentioned above, improve the overall quality of the content and help you present the best-unified data on your website and ultimately win more customers.    

Here in this piece, we’ll look at how major hotel mapping service providers work and compare their offerings in greater detail.
