Google has dropped the "website" button in the Google hotel search listings. Previously, if you clicked on a hotel listing, the listing detail page would show a "website" button. That button would take you to the hotel's website landing page, to potentially book there.

But as of yesterday, the button seems to have gone missing. Maybe it is a bug, maybe by the time this story was published, the button returned? I hope so...

Update: This was a bug, more details below.

Here is what it looks like now:

Forum discussion at Twitter.

Note: This was pre-written and scheduled to be posted today, I am currently offline for Yom Kippur.

Update: This was a bug, Danny Sullivan of Google said so:
