    Even with the many TA non-believers, IMHO TA has helped us a few times at least.:)

    I try to find out:

    Consistencies between reviews
    Different times of the year / older vs. newer reviews
    Top star rating given vs. low rating

    =====================================

    Add this all up = summarize my own expectations
    and the overnight charges paid = decide. :)

    Also many of the booking sites like Hotels.com have reviews.
    Always good to look at multiple sites.

    Indeed, Hotels.com can be highly recommended, they have vetted reviews plus Hotels.com offers mostly good value propositions = Welcome Rewards too!:)
