Starwood rates listed on Kayak

I've gotten used to using Kayak for all my flights and hotels. Ont thing that is odd though is that none of the listings for starwood properties have spg.com as the booking site. Usually its hotels.com, Travelocity, or some

So I exit kayak and log back into spg. It would be so much easier if there were linkage.

One other comment .... It would be nice if spg.com could have a variable length field for rate codes for our profile. So my corporate set code cold be listed as well as AAA or other set codes. This way we can see all the rates at once.

Hi GBGFlyer,

I believe Kayak is considered a third party booking website. Not sure if most third party websites would agree to link up to our websites, so I think there might be more contract issues involved in this case. Do correct me if I am wrong.

Unless it is tripadvisor.com which links up to every single hotel website that is available.

Kayak charges a fee for such a link......... each time you click a link to hotels.com, etc, they are paying Kayak for that click.
