— Packed full of information, from the best time of year to visit (I love NYC in Spring) to top tips from locals, All The Rooms provides the best accommodation, whether you are looking to enjoy your first time visit to New York or want to experience a new location
— My favorite thing about AllTheRooms is that it combines both rentals and hotels available so you can see an entire view of what is available in a certain area. I was able to see listings on AllTheRooms that I never even saw on other travel sites!
— I love All the Rooms because instead of having to check one place for home rentals, another for hotel, another for bed and breakfasts, and yet another for a room rental in a private residence, I can finally see EVERYTHING at one site; saving me considerable time
