Looks like a great idea!
I've skimmed through but didn't notice it being published which OTAs are (or aren't) included? Is this solely comparing with hotelscombined?

I would also suggest OP think about comparing local (spg.com) currency instead of USD. I know, it's painful with OTAs, but that would be significantly more realiable data than converting the exchange rates within the service itself.

I will consider your suggestion. Since this website is currently a prototype and I'm still working on it, it still has much more to do before the currency problem.

It seems that the chrome or firewall think my crawler's server address and port is suspicious and denied it, but currently I really do not have extra money for one more server, maybe you can try to disable your firewall or lower the security level of the chrome when you try to use my tool and set them back after your searches are complete.

Thanks!

How about the sites compared - is it only hotelscombined or do you also source information from e.g. kayak?

Another suggestion: it will be great to exclude sites like hotelclicks or happyroom since BRG team won't approve rates from these sites anymore.
