Google has added a new tab to local search knowledge panels which assigns grades to hotels based on their location.
Hotels are graded from 1 to 5 – with 1 being a terrible location and 5 being a spectacular location.
The overall score is an average of three individual scores (which are also graded on a 5-point scale):
- Proximity to things to do
- Proximity to transit
- Airport access
Each of these scores is calculated based on data from Google Maps.
