Oyster will continue to operate out of New York and will be incorporated into Smarter Travel Media, a group of travel media companies owned by TripAdvisor.

"We're pleased to add the Oyster team to the TripAdvisor family," said Steve Kaufer, co-founder and CEO of TripAdvisor. "Oyster has created some wonderful photo and editorial content of hotels in popular destinations and it will be a strong addition to the TripAdvisor brand."

Oyster.com launched in 2009.
