Need some advice—or have your own recommendations? User Posts + Reviews is where you can share travel tips with your fellow travelers, sound off about the places you've been, and ask questions about the places you want to go.

User Reviews
We want to hear from you! It's easy to post your own review of any hotel, restaurant, nightspot, shop, or sightseeing attraction listed on the site.

How to write a review

Step 1: Sign in or join

Step 2: Search the site for the editorial listing of the hotel, restaurant, nightspot, shop, or sightseeing attraction you'd like to review—this one, for example.

Step 3: Click the User Reviews tab, then click "Write a Review."

Step 4: Enter a title and your review. Remember, the best reviews are those that help other users get the most out of their experience. What's the best room to book? Does the museum get more crowded on certain days? Is this restaurant a good bet for families with small kids?

Step 5: Click "Submit." Your review may take a few moments to appear on the site.

Where to find reviews written by other users

To see reviews written by other users:

Search the site for specific editorial review pages such as this one, and click the User Reviews tab.


If you'd like to scan all the reviews for a destination, click "User Posts + Reviews" on the left-hand side of the destination guide.

Looking for just reviews of restaurants in New York, or tips on transportation? It's easy to filter by type (user reviews or discussion topics), by destination, or theme on the left side of the page.

User Discussions

Your tips and advice can help your fellow travelers plan amazing trips (and avoid annoying travel pitfalls). And if you've got a question about an upcoming trip, there's no better place to start finding answers. Join the conversation in the User Posts + Reviews section of any destination.

How to post a new discussion topic

Step 1: Sign in or join

Step 2: From any destination guide on the site, click "User Posts + Reviews" in the list of links on the left side of the page. Then click the Start a Discussion button.

Step 3: Write your questions, ideas, or tips in the box provided—and don't forget to give your post a catchy title.

Step 4: "Tag" your post: This is a quick step that helps make your posts easier for other users to find. There are two kinds of tags:

Destination tags: If you're an expert on Austin, we want readers of the Austin guide to find your post! Destination tags help our site sort and display user posts correctly.

To tag your post to a destination, check the box next to the location you're writing about, or start typing in the text box to enter the destination name yourself. We'll suggest possible matches with's destination database.

Theme tags: Theme tags help users find user posts by category and subject matter. Select a theme tag from the check boxes provided. You can also type your own subject-matter tags into the text box, separated by commas.

Step 5: Click "Submit." Your post may take a few moments to appear on the site.

How to reply to an existing discussion topic

Step 1: Sign in or join

Step 2: Find the discussion thread to which you'd like to reply and scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Step 3: In the gray box, enter your reply (up to 4,000 characters) and click "Submit." Your post may take a few moments to appear on the site.

Note: While you may reply to discussion topics, you may not reply directly to another user's review of a hotel, restaurant, or other property. If you have tips about a specific listing to share, post your own review following the steps above.
