Travel Tips: Google HotelFinder

As has been expected for some time, Google is making it's own play for a piece of the hotel booking industry. While it's still in "experiment" mode, Google Hotel Finder offers a service many are used to through services like Hotels.com, Booking.com, Expedia, Orbitz, etc. Users simply need to input the city and dates and they are given a list of results. Further fine-tuning of the results is available by price and hotel class/user rating.

It's a fairly basic tool. I personally don't see myself using this anytime soon though, Without an "amenities" filter, there's no easy means of filtering out, say, hotels without pools, hotels that don't permit pets, etc.
