We publish detailed, professionally written hotel reviews penned by well-traveled writers. At Hotel Scoop we are open to hearing from anyone representing hotels, resorts, and other lodging worth talking about if there’s a good opportunity to work on something of mutual benefit.

We haven’t been around all that long, but you can see our media kit here.

We are not a trade organization nor a “hot news” outlet: most of our stories are meant to have long-term appeal to real travelers looking for help on planning where to stay. So this is not a place to send spray-and-pray press releases.

What we do want is real news that will still matter a year or two from now to potential guests: new property openings, the elimination of extra fees (such as hated resort fees or Wi-Fi charges), a name change, a new wing added to a well-known resort, etc. Please send any real news items or press trip invites to the editor at tim [ at] timleffel.com or contact the contributing writer you already have a relationship with.

We’re always open to getting hosted stay invites because that enables us to write a lot of details about the property based on first-person experience. Our most frequent type of posting is a hotel review far more detailed than readers will find elsewhere on the web or in a magazine. Please send any hosted stay information to either tim [at] timleffel.com, or to the appropriate individual contributor if you already have a relationship with one of them.

If your request is urgent or needs to be discussed on the phone, contact the editor Tim at 615-489-4761 (Skype–will ring around the world).
