Hotel booking now part of Google’s knowledge graph

Search for a major city on Google, and you’ll likely see hotel booking information in the knowledge graph box. Listed just under the city’s weather info, Google’s knowledge graph for city searches now includes the city’s average hotel star rating, costs, and a link to “View hotels.”

Now when you do a city search on Google, you will see a hotel booking link in the knowledge graph box.

The “View hotels” link delivers a search results page for hotel listings in the relevant city.

Google's new addition allows you compare the average hotel prices in cities by simply searching the name of any city.
