NEWS: Farecast – Hotel Rate Comparison… powered by Microsoft Virtual Earth!

File this under way cool.  Imagine a web site that asks what city you’re interested in going to and what dates you’ll be traveling there…

image…then provides you the lowest rates available to each of hotels in the city, the link to the service providing the rate, and most importantly, whether or not the price is a "good deal" relative to historical price trending for the time of year and property.

That’s Farecast!

For example: 
I’m going to be traveling to the Bank Administration Institute (BAI) Retail Delivery Conference & Expo in Las Vegas in November.   

So by entering in Las Vegas and some dates, I get the following results:

How cool is that?  Hard Rock Hotel’s available for $149.  Vegas, baby, Vegas!
