In addition to your preferred hotel, we also monitor other hotels of the same brand. For example, if you requested/booked a Holiday Inn we monitor other Holiday Inns in the area for a lower rate. The Search Radius around your hotel can be set to 1,2,3 and 5 miles from your original hotel. BrandSearch™ notification always includes price, rate type, room type, distance from original hotel and a link to book directly with the hotel. You can get a RateAlert™ and a BrandSearch™ RateAlert™ together if the price dropped in both your original hotel and in an alternative hotel.
