About Us

Tablet is everything you need for unforgettable travel experiences: all the hotels that matter, effortless online booking at the lowest available prices, and live, dependable customer service — you bring a hunger for experience and a taste for the unusual, and we'll take care of the rest.

Tablet was founded in the year 2000 in search of a cure for boring travel and an antidote to the internet's most common affliction: an overdose of options. Our users trust our taste — we do the hard work of selecting only the world's most extraordinary hotels, and we make booking them as painless as it can be. Tablet's purpose is to put the ease, the romance, the glamour back in travel, from inspiration to confirmation.

Hotels are anonymously visited and evaluated by our team of experts, and we'll only keep them on the site if they're making you happy. Only Tablet guests are allowed to submit reviews (verified stays), and we'll remove any hotel with a less-than-stellar rating. We'll also remove any hotel that fails to offer the lowest possible rates. Our online booking process is a snap, and if you've got a question or a special request our concierge-grade customer service team is always ready to help. Travel can be a headache, or it can make you feel alive — we know which one we'd prefer.
