Room 77 books $30 million

CaptureHotel room search site raises big new funding round.

FORTUNE -- Room 77, a meta search and booking engine for hotel rooms, has raised around $30 million in new venture capital funding, according to a regulatory filing.

The San Francisco-based company not only provides very specific information and visual tours for thousands of available rooms, but it also provides a concierge service to help users find a room that best fits their preferences.

No new investors were listed on the filing, although there almost certainly were some. Room 77 previously raised $13.5 million from firms like Sutter Hill Ventures, Felicis Ventures, PAR Capital Management, Concur Technologies (CNQR) and General Catalyst Partners.

Jim White of Sutter Hill has joined the company's board of directors.

Expect more information on this one shortly, since consumer-facing sites like Room 77 have all sorts of interest in publicizing large funding rounds.

UPDATE: There's now a press release, which says that (EXPE) is part of the round. Not too surprising, given that early Room 77 investors also included Expedia founder Rich Barton plus former Expedia execs like Lloyd Frink and Erik Blachford. Also participating was existing board member Spencer Rascoff, co-founder of Hotwire who currently serves as CEO of Zillow (Z).
