My Brother-in-Law's Awesome Company

Sometimes you have a computer genius in the family. And sometimes they create a freaking awesome company that you can't help but share. That happens to be us right now. My brother-in-law, Bill, is one of the smartest guys I know and he recently launched an AMAZING new company for the travel industry called All The Rooms. Get this: IT'S THE WORLD'S LARGEST ACCOMMODATIONS SEARCH ENGINE!!! Yes, he can offer you more listings than ANY other platform on the web. And it's because he includes not just hotels, but Airbnbs, hostels, B&Bs, campsites, vacation apartments, homes, villas, even the secret deals on Hotwire, and even FREE accommodation options all in one single search!! Bam. So cool, right? It's pretty amazing that Bill and his team have pulled this off. They've been working their tails off over the last year to make it happen.

When we went to Colombia, we met up with Bill and my sister, Janna. They had been living in Colombia for a while as some of Bill's programming team is located there. We're all super excited as the company is already taking off. We can't help but want so much for him to succeed as he is the nicest guy ever and is just working so hard, along with his team.

Also, Bill would be so delighted if you took a peek at his website and shared it with others in any way that you can. Feel free to leave ANY feedback in the comments, too. He'd appreciate it a ton and is open to any suggestions. And, he'd be over the moon if you gave All The Rooms a try next time you booked an accommodation (hello - Memorial Day! Summer!!!!)

Fun Fact: Bill and Janna are world travelers. They met in NYC on the 5 Borough Bike Ride; they went on one of their first dates to Paris; they went on their honeymoon to Croatia; they moved from Brooklyn to London when Janna was 8 months pregnant; they later lived in Poland with their two children; then lived on a farm in Oregon; then lived in Colombia; and just moved back to Brooklyn. I love how fearless they are in traveling and moving places, even with their two kids!!

  2. We love Jana and Bill too. My last memory of them before they moved from Mesa to Columbia was seeing them dancing with their two cute kids at Sam's wedding. I'm hoping the best for them!

  4. This is a great resource! I shared it on my running blog (which is still quite new and only has a modest following) but it is a perfect platform for runners who regularly travel for races. Thanks!

    1. Brittany, you are the BEST! That is so, so sweet of you to share on your blog. Thanks a ton for that. And yes, I think it would be IDEAL for runners - esp. ones that travel a lot and need to find cheap but good accommodations.

  5. Hi there, I relaly like the idea of a one stop shop as I am often seeking out price comparisons etc over several sites. I have tried to use the website three times now, once using your link from the blog and twice from a google search. The page comes up and the front page search is great however once I put in the information and pushed search, the page comes up and says "loading results" . It is not showing the results? Hope this feedback is useful. Oh and it said to push here to get the new version and nothing chnaged?

  6. Love it! Thanks for sharing.
    It would be great to see the price in other currencies - we are not all Americans :).

    1. There is a selector at the bottom for other currencies. I think we need to make it more obvious! If you're currency isn't there, please post a note.

  9. What a great idea! I had the hardest time finding accommodations when prepping to come to NYC. This would've been great to have to put all of the websites in one place. One question: Where do I find the FREE ones? Haha...but seriously... :)

  10. Such a great idea! I can't get it to go past the Loading Results page either - I tried it with Internet Explorer and Chrome.

    1. Thanks for the note. We obviously have some bugs to work out and we're trying to figure out why it works for some people and not others. If you ever do get it to work, please send a note and maybe if you can see what you might have done differently. Thank you!

  11. Greater love have no one than this, that one should lay down his life for another. Jesus gave His life and atoned for our sins so that all who believe in Him could have eternal life. God Bless
