Is this site legit?
It's like 15% less expensive than any other booking site...
Any concern with booking hotel stay with it?

Acc to Wikipedia- In 2016, Gogobot, a travel booking and research company founded by entrepreneurs Travis Katz and Ori Zaltzman in 2010 acquired the Trip.com brand from Expedia and rebranded the service as Trip.com. In 2017, CTrip acquired Trip.com and repositioned the company as an international online travel agency.

if it originated from expedia, it's probably fine, but it's always best not to go through 3rd parties...

Saved about $150 booking on them for my 2022 trip to San Diego. I did my research at the time, and was told that the big problems with them start when something goes wrong, but otherwise it is good savings. It wasn't my money nor final decision and the one paying decided to book there. Had no problems in the end, but paid their "extra fees" for various "guarantees" regarding the booking. (The 'automatic check-in' feature worked like a charm. At TLV I went to this counter in the middle with no one on the lines - that's where they sent me. I was flying United with a short stopover in SFO.)

Pretty sure most chains exclude this and other Chinese tour agencies. Check the terms, if not, have fun.
