Dopplr, the Helsinki based travel service for frequent business travellers, has partnered with the boutique and luxury hotel guide service Mr and Mrs Smith. Dopplr has not released anything about this in their blog yet, but they have sent out an e-mail to their members.
We’ve launched a new partnership to help you find and book excellent lodging during your travels.
We’re working with the boutique hotel experts at Mr & Mrs Smith, and you’ll now have direct access from your Dopplr itineraries to their unrivalled insider knowledge, global hotel collection and booking services.
If you’re familiar with Mr & Mrs Smith, you know that they’re known for deep research into high-quality lodging. They offer the best room rates on everything from quirky city stays and romantic boutique retreats to stylish country manors and luxury spa hotels. And they tried every place they recommend, to be sure it meets their standards.
For example, Mr & Mrs Smith recommend:
* Hotel J in Stockholm, for your next trip there
* Pershing Hall in Paris, for your next trip there
These are just some of the hotels Mr & Mrs Smith have looked at in depth. They have ideas for many tastes, and budgets.
What we like most about Mr & Mrs Smith’s approach to travel should be familiar to you: it combines utility and style. Like us, they value the romance and beauty of travel — and also like to find good deals along the way.
Please let us know what you think of this new feature. And please keep an eye on the Dopplr Blog (http://blog.dopplr.com) for updates.

This is a step towards the extra value of the service for the customers I was talking about in my previous post about Dopplr. The only doubt I have is how many business travellers reserve their own hotels? Then again, there are many kind of companies so surely this will create some revenue in the form of shared comissions.
