In the Hotels, Media & Platform segment, revenue remained flat at $254 million compared with the year-ago quarter. Within this segment, revenue from TripAdvisor-branded hotels was flat at $216 million while revenue from TripAdvisor-branded display and platform increased 6% to $38 million.

Revenue in the Experiences & Dining segment grew 29% to $80 million. Other revenue decreased 33% to $42 million, mainly due to the elimination of some marginal and unprofitable revenue within some non-TripAdvisor branded offerings. This in turn reduced revenue and increased profitability.
