Orlando Sentinel Calls HotelShark.com "Striking"

November 15, 2005 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
The Orlando Sentinel is calling HotelShark.com a "widely used" collection of "thoughtful and nuanced" hotel reviews. The piece ran in the travel section of the November 13, 2005 edition, and was entitled "Everyone's A Critic When It Comes To Hotel Reviews Online."

The newspaper states that "the candor is striking" on HotelShark.com, adding, "the writers often take a refreshingly undiplomatic approach."

HotelShark.com's Orlando coverage is extensive. Hotels in the Orlando area that have earned HotelShark.com's fin award for service quality include the Best Western Lake Buena Vista Resort Hotel, Disney's All-Star Sports Resort, Disney's Polynesian Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Disney's Port Orleans Resort, the Holiday Inn Express Airport West, the Portofino Bay Hotel, the Sheraton Suites Orlando Airport, Universal's Royal Pacific Resort, and the Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge in Lake Buena Vista.

The Orlando Sentinel endorsement is the second that HotelShark.com has received from a major media outlet this month. On November 2, the CBS TV affiliate in Wichita, Kansas advised travelers to visit Hotelshark.com to "get the inside scoop from people who've actually stayed at the hotel."

HotelShark.com collects, screens, and publishes unbiased hotel reviews written by real travelers. The site posts reviews only after they have been thoroughly researched and authenticated. HotelShark.com discards well over half of all incoming contributions as insufficient or invalid. The site may be viewed free of charge at the www.hotelshark.com Internet address.
