Support for Transparency in Online Hotel Booking

Catherine Marsden over at Accessible Chicago and the Kudos & Tomoatoes blog is one of several readers to register their support for the wakeup call to Bonnie and Judith's to Hotels.com.

Take a look at her April 8, 2007 blog entry, "Kudos for Orbitz Travel Website."

I had a positive experience with Orbitz travel website recently that I thought I would share with my users. I wanted to test the notion that firms in the entertainment and service industries do not currently offer the term wheelchair accessible as a selection criteria. For example, Metromix in Chicago can offer entertainment selections based on what types of bands you want to see, what neigborhood you want to go out in, but they do not offer a selection that would bring back an answer based on whether the user wanted wheelchair accessible seating, parking, or a wheelchair ramped entrance.

For the whole story:
