The company launched the neighborhoods feature in response to users, who cited location as the most important factor in choosing a place to stay.
“Neighborhoods are the original communities. They are the keys to unlocking local culture and one-of-a-kind experiences,” said Brian Chesky, co-founder and CEO of Airbnb in a press release. “By going deeper and tapping into local knowledge, we are introducing our community to a neighborhood’s personality so they can match it with their own.”
According to a blog post, the feature is a "tool that matched you with the neighborhood that's right for your trip."
Beautiful photographs, quotes from Airbnb hosts and other local information give potential guests a feel for the place they might spend their vacation, whether it is a long weekend or a month-long adventure.
