Preview, validate, and view the performance of your property with Hotel Center

The "Property details" page lets you customize searches so that you can validate and preview your property listing using a variety of scenarios. You can do the following:
  • Ensure that a property is participating in property ads or free booking links, preview how your property appears on Google Search, Google Maps, or YouTube, and check if your landing page is working as intended.
  • Check your property's base price and room pricing for a given itinerary, occupancy, and other details.

You can also:

  • View the number of impressions and clicks your property received on Google in the last 30 days in the Performance card.
  • Add more context to the previewed booking link, such as the user's device type, language, and country from which they searched.
  • Check your basic property information, such as address, phone number, and source of property information (such as your hotel list file).
  • View an estimate of booking value driven by free booking links. This estimate is based on a 5% conversion rate from clicks that occurred for a specific property.
  • (Suppliers only) Assess how your property's performance compares to similar hotels that travelers have also considered.
  • Check your price accuracy score.
