How helpful do you find "peer review" sites like Yelp, Urban Spoon, etc.?

Jump to last reply

Frankly, I think Yelp, Urban Spoon, and TripAdvisor have revolutionized the way I travel on business and for pleasure. Of course the reviews for a given establishment have to be taken with a grain (maybe several grains) of salt, especially when they are few in number. But I'm sure I've found good restaurants, hotels, or stores in both big cities and small towns that I would have never found without them. The ability to focus in large cities on specific neighborhoods and price ranges is especially helpful. So a few questions for Fodorites:

1. Which of these "peer review" do you find the most useful (e.g., Yelp for restaurants, TA for lodging, etc.)?

2. What are your "rules of thumb" in maximizing the usefulness of and filtering the information given on these sites?

3. Are there others besides Yelp, Urban Spoon, and TripAdvisor that you've found to be particularly helpful?

4. Which of these sites has the best smart phone app?
