ABSTRACT
 

"One of the most comprehensive sites is TripAdvisor, with more than one million reviews posted on 140,000 hotels worldwide. The Massachusetts-based company is owned by Expedia Inc., the parent company to Expedia.com, Hotels.com and Hotwire, but it operates independently, and doesn't take reservations for hotel rooms or sell airline tickets. Rather, it acts as a clearinghouse where travelers search out or swap travel advice, then hit links to book with online travel suppliers, including Orbitz, Travelocity and Expedia, with whom TripAdvisor partners."
