Bug Description

I have a Marriot hotel neaby.

If I search for "marr" nothing displays.

But if I search for "marriott" the hotel displays.

Seems like the hotel should display when the search is for the fragment.

The issue is that the user-entered search term is provided to yelp's API and yelp returns results for it. Apparently yelp does not provide data for such fragments by design.

Since we only have a single search field, and since we do want to provide the search query to Yelp API, practically speaking we are stuck with the current behavior.

Changed in yelp-scope:
status: New → Confirmed
status: Confirmed → Won't Fix
