We understand that you think this is a bit sketchy. As you don’t know what you will get. What if it’s not so good? But… Now open this offer in a new tab. And take a look at the notes.

You can see these notes in detail. Then you have to go back to the previous tab and look at all available hotels (scroll down the list) and just match them to those specific ratings. And that’s how you find the exact hotel.

To start, we’ll just look at those with an overall score of 4.0. So, for example, Maui Seaside Hotel has a rating of 4.0. And it is the only hotel among the 7 found according to our dates.

See if the ratings on Maui Seaside Hotel match all the ratings of a The business of the day Hotel. There you go: mystery solved. Congratulations, you got a deal. And Hotwire doesn’t really need to know that…
