It’s Not Just Airbnb — HomeAway Starts Adding Hotels Too

Pictured is a suite at the Sonesta ES Suites Chicago – Lombard in Highland Hills, Illinois. Vacation rental site HomeAway is now listing this hotel through HomeAway’s relationship with the Expedia Affiliate Network.

Skift Take: While Airbnb has been brashly adding independent hotels, HomeAway has been quietly doing the same — although it has been using an entirely different business model given its ties to parent Expedia. Curation may have its place, but all of these companies realize that the more inventory and choice they give consumers, the more likely they are to spend on a stay.
