Weingard, based on user preferences, needs and wants.
Each reviewer brings a standard-size bucket with them, and time how long it takes for it
to fill up in the shower.
Users log on and register on their website, then fill out what their personalized needs are on a chart which
allows them to rate their preferences, such as price, service, and facilities, among other criteria.
After submitting their desired criteria, Hotelmine lists the hotels, in order of most affordable, which match
the selected preferences.
The hotels have also been reviewed critically by Worldmine, and each review is detailed, and focused on the
level of service as well as the other amenities that the hotels provide.
Each reviewer is given a list of things to look out for when they visit a hotel: Does the doorman greet you
while opening the door? Does the receptionist make eye contact, or call you by name? Does the staff know the vicinity
well, in case they are called upon for assistance?
They also analyze service performance - how long does it take for front desk to pick up a call? How soon after
an order does it take for room service to deliver? Every hotel has its eggs, toast and coffee test-tasted and reviewed.

Even the rooms are measured to check if it is as big as it is supposed to be. There are over 200 variables that
hotels are rated according to.
