Alexey, a hotel booking expert, is back in action with a new crossword puzzle, which he calls the “Ars Technica Holiday Puzzle.”
The puzzle is meant to solve the hotel bookings puzzle, but you might want to keep an eye out for the answer if you’re looking for some holiday travel tips.
Sushnikov said the holiday puzzle is based on an article from The Atlantic, which states, “When it comes to the hotel room, it can be hard to know where to start.
Here’s a new way to tackle that: crossword puzzles.”
The article explains how to crossword the bookings problem by answering a series of letters in a row, with each letter representing a different hotel.
The puzzle consists of five steps, and the first step will require you to answer a question that reads “What hotel does this house belong to?”
The solution to the puzzle is a series (10 letters) of words with the word “Hotel” at the beginning of each letter, which means you can crossword it by asking questions about hotels like “What is a hotel?”
“What’s the name of the building in which this house is located?” and “Who is this person?”
Sushnikov explained that he used the article to come up with the crossword because he was curious how hotel bookers in the US would answer the question, and wondered how long it would take to answer it.
He said that he thought it was worth exploring because he doesn’t want to miss out on any holiday travel opportunities if he has time.
