If you're trying to plan a vacation, you're likely checking out websites like Priceline & Hotwire. Here's another to add to your list: There's a special reason I'm so excited about this site: You can use Bing to see your hotel before you pay to reserve it!

Do a search & it will provide you with a list of hotels. Click on each hotel & scroll to the bottom of the details. You'll notice there is a Bing map with an approximate area that the hotel is located in. Now click on "Birds Eye View" & voila! There's an aerial shot of your hotel.

Now, some of the shots are of more than 1 hotel, so you will need to do a little snooping around online to figure out which one it is. But this gives you the upper hand when it comes to reserving a room at a rock bottom price. My guess is that LastMinuteTravel will figure this out & remove Bing from their hotel descriptions, but for the time's a huge benefit if you're planning a trip!
