If you're doing advance planning for a summer trip wouldn't it be nice to avoid unpleasant surprises when you get to your hotel? -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What if you could preview the exact room you'll be staying in from the comfort of your own home?

In this week's edition of Site Seeing, the "key" is a website that lets you take a sneak peek of that room with a view.

Stars will only tell you so much. But the only way to really know what a hotel is like is to visit. Now you can do just that without ever boarding a plane through TVtrip.com .

The site features hundreds of hotels that offer virtual tours. With panoramic views of rooms, restaurants and all of their other amenities, practically the only thing you can't do is test out how comfy the bed is but you can see the size.

You start your journey by typing in the city you plan to visit, the airport you'll be arriving at, or even a famous landmark. For example type in "Eiffel Tower" and TVtrip.com will bring up more than a thousand results; all prospective hotels in the city of lights.

Watch mini movies of places you're considering, check out the minimum rates for rooms and put away any remaining doubts by reading hundreds of reviews.

If you're still not quite sure, just save it in the folder marked "my trips" so you can come back later and check out the places where you plan to check in.
