The quickest method to retrieve news articles about a particular hotel company, city, country or person is to use Hotel Online's search engine. Use one or two words in your search. Examples: To search for New York  - type in 'york' (new is just too common!) To search for Steve Wynn...type in 'mirage' (Steve is too common and Wynn does not contain a vowel).
