Wall Street Journal Recommends HotelShark.com
June 05, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsLast Friday's Wall Street Journal called HotelShark.com one of five recommended "sites with user-generated hotel reviews." The venerable business newspaper noted that HotelShark.com "screens reviews and only accepts ones it finds sincere."
The endorsement appeared in the June 1, 2007 edition of the Wall Street Journal in an article entitled "Deconstructing TripAdvisor."
HotelShark.com posts reviews only after they have been thoroughly researched and authenticated. The site discards well over half of all incoming contributions as insufficient or invalid. HotelShark.com awards fins to hotels that are reviewed, on the whole, positively by guests. A fin appears as a small, gray icon to the left of a hotel’s name within a given city index. The fin system gives travelers a quick way to find well-liked hotels within a given city. HotelShark.com remains 100% owned by its creator.
Neither HotelShark.com nor its parent SharkPage is affiliated with TripAdvisor, the Wall Street Journal, or any particular hotel property or chain.
HotelShark.com, the site that Consumer Reports calls one of “the tricks to booking online,” is the world’s most-trusted Internet lodging guide.

HotelShark.com was named one of the five best travel websites by National Geographic Traveler magazine, and has been praised by the Independent ( UK ), US News & World Report, and USA Today.
