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.

    But it doesn’t work!!!!
    The hotel I’m staying at in San Juan is in the ocean?? I don’t think so.

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. Is it possible to add an hotel is this data base?

  5. my guesthouse appears to be located in a paddy field about two miles from its real location, how can I correct this error.

  6. I have tried three times to load up the details of my villa to let in Corsica on Google Earth and each time it has destroyed all the details and taken me to Google Business Centre when I pressed “Next” instead of continuing with the information I had typed in as requested.

  7. I don’t see the relationship with Google Earth on this website. My friends hotel does not appear on it whereas it is well listed on Google.
    I though it was some kind of tool that gather hotels from google database and then proposes booking. I don’t think this type of tool will be ready soon. I think more that Google itself will propose such kind of service.
