EarthBooker - 80,000 Hotels in Google Earth

Earthbooker hotel locations in Google EarthIn the United States and the UK you can search for hotels and get some results. However, the rest of the world is not available yet within Google Earth's search. Thanks to the power of the network link and business enterprise you can view 80,000 hotels all over the world. EarthBooker.com not only provides a web site for browsing for the world's hotels, but also a Google Earth network link which they call EarthBooker.

Once you download EarthBooker , zoom in to a location to see hotels. The closer you are, the more hotels will appear (assuming there are hotels from their database there). If you click the hotel you will get a description, a picture, and of course links to make a reservation, get more information, or even ways to get a newsletter. Of course, you can also get directions from Google Earth and you can use GE to search for nearby tourist locations (simply turn on the Google Earth Community Layer to find all kinds of things nearby).

This is an excellent application of Google Earth's network link which makes GE a fabulous 3D browser. The application for EarthBooker was developed by GlobeAssistant.com which specializes in writing business applications for Google Earth particularly for Real Estate, News, and Travel.

    Probably an error in the database for lattitude and longitude for your hotel. If you are using Earthbooker, go to the globeassistant.com web site and report the name of the hotel that has a problem.

    Hi! Wonderful idea, just a little note...
    Your guide shows a hotel in the area where I live, but sincerely there isn't any hotel at that location as I know: the only building that you can find there is the local penitentiary only ...
    Was yours pure sarcasm?
