Share Your Hotel Video Reviews on Hotel Confidential

Got a hotel stay coming up? Become a Hotel Confidential agent and share your hotel video reviews on Hotel Confidential. The best part is, you don't have to be a professional filmmaker to make a review. All you need is a smartphone!

Here's how it works. During your hotel stay, shoot 4 videos of different areas of the hotel, including your room. For example, you could make a video of your room, the lobby, the gym, and the view from the rooftop infinity pool. In your video, talk about your experience at the hotel, what you liked or didn't like, and any tips you have for future guests. Travelers trust online reviews by fellow travelers, and your video reviews will help other people research and plan their own trips.

Now, when you book your hotel stay at, you can earn $25 cash for your hotel video review!
