We've seen our fair share of good hotel booking websites and then a few that we choose not to talk about ever again. Some are still using the standard model: view room details, book room, pre-pay and then rock up to lay your head. But now searching for a hotel room in Australia has just been changed to a way more pleasurable experience thanks to Hooroo.com

The website is the brainchild of the Australian airline, Qantas. The Red Roo has gone into booking accommodation for their passengers arriving in domestic cities. Our initial reaction? So smart! Oh wait; there's more! The site is not only a search engine to find the cheapest hotel. The site acts as a travel concierge, even before you step foot in front of a reception desk.

The website has a fun and easily navigable interface, making it seamless to book a room in your destination. Not only does it offer room rates and property details, it gives first hand recommendations on what to see in the city you are visiting. With an overview of the destination, dining venues, shopping outlets, things to do and actual traveler experiences, the site is a one-stop-shop for travelers.

Hooroo intends to inspire people to travel and experience everything their holiday has to offer. So if you know that you just need to get away, click on Inspire and see which destinations suit your fancy. You can even create a profile of previous trips to allow Hooroo to help you with your decisions. Australia has plenty of options to suit everyone's interests. Trust us.

If you are asking yourself, "what is up with the word hooroo?", here is the answer: 'Hooroo' is Aussie slang for 'good-bye'; essentially, the website needs you to say hooroo and they will take care of everything else. Well, everything but the transportation, but that's what their parent company is for!
