Know of hotel/resturant/attraction

What if I know a hotel/inn/restaurant exists, but have never been there and would just like to see them listed for continuity's sake? (People might not post reviews of someplace that's not listed b/c they're intimidated or not tech savvy enough to figure out how to add a listing.)

Do you mean listed in the "reviews" section, even though nobody has done a review on the place? Just listed there so somebody could try it out?

Some cities do have listings that have not yet been reviewed by TA members. Here is one small example:

Seems to me TA used to have a form for adding a listing without a review. But now when I go into the Help Center and select "How to tell us about a property we don't have listed" it tells you how to add it along with your review. I can't figure out how to just get a property listed if you aren't an owner.

If you are an owner of a prop and want it listed, this page tells you how: www.tripadvisor.com/help/how_can_i_get_listed

Also - this page tripadvisor.com/help/how_did_my_property_end… mentions how listings appear on TA - it's aimed at property owners.

Maybe someone else can find that form in the Help Center.

I'd follow the instructions on this page from the Help Center, "How to alert us of an attraction, restaurant, or accommodation listing we don't have":


Yes, it's described in terms of writing a review for that place, but I'm confident that the folks at TA who screen reviews and update listings will understand what to do with a review that reads "Couldn't find this on your site, please add listing." Perhaps the Help Center page could be expanded to clarify that point.
