Plugging a hotel’s name into Google usually returns a whole host of sites, and it can be a challenge to weed through them to find the hotel’s actual website. Click on the wrong link and you might end up on an impostor site or a shady booking agent, which can do everything from overcharging you for your hotel stay to stealing your credit card information and never even booking your room. Always examine the URL, and call the hotel if you at all unsure whether a website is legitimate.
