Steps to run Hotel Ads campaigns

Hotel Ads campaign is now available in Google Ads. 

1. Follow the instruction of creating a Google Ads account

  • If you already have an existing master Google Ads account, we recommend you to set up a child Google Ads account for Hotel Ads within the current master account. 
  • If you don't currently have a Google Ads account, we recommend you to set up a master Google Ads account, and a child Google Ads account for Hotel Ads campaigns.

2. Once your child Google Ads account is set up, you can follow this instruction to link your Google Ads account with your account in Hotel Ads Center where you set up your feeds. The two accounts have to link before we can activate Hotel Ads.
