Founded by Jeremy Murphy and Mike Aucoin, TheSuitest is a hotel search engine that “crunches millions of room prices and amenities” to save travelers money. Murphy and Aucoin both used to work in finance and never planned on entering the travel industry. But during their business travels, they realized that hotel search engines were limited – they only compared pricing and locations and left out room amenities such as square footage, view, bathtub, TV size, and more. The pair felt that travelers had to waste a lot of time on overlapping searches just to find that information. Thus, they created algorithms that could analyze raw data like date, location, pricing, and all the details that were missing from other hotel search engines. To collect this enormous amount of data, they went straight to the hotels. According to Murphy, they found that third-party sources were either incomplete or inaccurate.
TheSuitest is currently available in Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Orange County, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, and Washington, DC.
