By using their own investigators who visit hotels taking hundreds of pictures and researching everything related to a stay, Oyster takes the guesswork out of the process for you. I did notice that the focus is on the world’s most popular destinations and larger cities. This makes sense because there are more hotels and more interest in these cities unlike my query into my home state of New Hampshire which yielded a laughably low one review. To give you a comparison in New York City alone there were 249 hotels listed. You may not find information on every hotel in the world that you might want to visit but give them time as they are adding new hotels as quickly as they can.
They also try to help if you are looking for a hotel for a specific purpose. One of my favorites is the food section (no surprise here) that includes their recommendations for restaurants that are at hotels. I'm kind of torn on this one because it seems like every time I try to eat food at a hotel it isn't that great but I'm sure there are exceptions to this rule. They have other categories including luxury, value, romantic, beach (my wife would love this one) and kid friendly hotels.
