Ladies & gentlemen, we have a winner.

Earlier this month, we held a contest to find out what t-shirt design you, our users, liked best.  We used our Facebook page to let you cast your vote for one of five beautiful t-shirt designs. And we’re here to tell you: the results are in.

i got 99 problems

We’ve all got 99 problems, but with Roomer, your hotel room will never be one.

A big thank you to all of you who voted! And a side note:  if you won a t-shirt or a prize, we’ve notified you via email.  So, make sure to check your inbox for the good news.

And, if you didn’t win a shirt but still want to sport our Roomer swag, do not fret!  For only $9.99, you too can look sharp in our brand new gear.

Our new features are super cool

We want to make your life easier.

So in addition to helping to banish the term “cancellation fees” from your vocabulary, we’re working on a site that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but enjoyably functional.

To make your travels as stress-free as possible from the get-go, we’ve added a few filters to help you search for hotel rooms. You can sift through our inventory according to destination, date, price, number of nights, or the hotel’s rating. Or, if you’re not sure what you’re looking for, you can identify your “persona,” and we’ll make some educated guesses (by “educated,” we mean that our complex algorithms are doing mathematically-based computations) to help you land your perfect deal. If that’s not innovation, then we don’t know what is.

We also realized that maybe you, our users, are looking to book a hotel in a highly specific location within a city. Maybe you need to be close to an event, or maybe you just plan on doing a lot of shopping in X, Y, or Z neighborhood. To take the headache out of your hotel search, we’ve added a map, so you can browse by the exact location of our postings.

Ashton, visit Roomer!

Yesterday, we heard some rumors Ashton Kutcher will be stopping by our neck of the woods the upcoming weeks, and we thought that it would be cool if he’d come join us at Roomer HQ.  So, to make our dreams come true, we assembled our elite Roomer film unit and produced this one minute masterpiece.  Watch, enjoy, and tweet this link (http://bit.ly/17JXUHp) with the hashtag #AshtonVisitRoomer at @aplusk.  Roomer out!
