What an amazing day we had at the LAUNCH Conference yesterday! It was there that we officially launched Room 77, in the presence of such notable folks like Kara Swisher, Aaron Patzer, Bill Lee and Robert Scoble — not to mention several other startups doing some very cool things.

It was an honor just to be at the conference, but we’re deeply humbled and thrilled to share that Room 77 was awarded “Best Overall” in the 1.0 competition! When we started building Room 77, we set out to bring more transparency for consumers in selecting the right room. At the end of the day, we strongly believe that this will lead to better travel experiences. So before you head off on your next trip, be sure to download our iPhone app and take Room 77 with you. We also invite you to share reviews and photos of your hotel rooms, either through the app or by emailing us at email@example.com.
Well, we’re just getting started, but we want to say: thank you to all those who supported us from the beginning, and to promise — we won’t let you down!
Oh — and, BIG shout out to Jason Calacanis for organizing such an amazing, high-caliber event!
