HotelTonight App Looks To Revolutionize Spontaneous Stays

We all know there’s an App for everything, but if you’ve tried out the Apps available in the area of travel in general and/or booking hotels, you know that things are pretty limited. In fact, they’re even more limited than they appear, because some of the “big guns” of travel have Apps that don’t work as wonderfully as we might expect.

Well, there’s a new game in town in the hotel booking department, and HotelTonight is a pretty cool option. It’s a niche idea, you have to be looking for a hotel right now, and be in one of the cities they cover, but it’s a handy App, and hopefully their coverage will expand. When you open the App (if you’re in the right place), you get three possible deals, which the App lists under Hip, Elegant, and Basic. Booking a room is only a few taps away, and if you find yourself in the position to take advantage of such a theory, you can get (theoretically) some good, last minute deals.

The App also provides a lot of extra info on the hotel, including why they like it, and how to get there. Plus, the App is not only free (a given for such a thing), but they are offering a $25 credit for your first booking.

If you find yourself in need of a room at the last minute, or are looking for a spontaneous stay, it’s unlikely that you’ll ever find a better way to go than an App built for exactly that circumstance.

It’s the only made-for-mobile travel tool for booking truly last minute, same-day hotel deals on-the-go, and solving a real problem in the travel industry and for consumers.

All other travel sites have adapted their website for mobile and the experience is clunky at best. They also typically shut down at Midnight – you can book until 2am using Hotel Tonight. Second, its changing the way people perceive situations when they need a hotel….tonight! It used to be daunting to try and find a decent deal – much less a decent hotel – when you’re stuck an extra day on business or taking a quick last minute trip.

Now its OK to be spontaneous and there’s a choice for every style and budget. The app has a sleek design and offers 3 hotel options every day per city – hip, basic and elegant – in LA, NYC, San Francisco, Boston, DC and Chicago – at discounted deals that are often lower than any other bookable rate. How do they get those deals you ask? They have street cred and really good connects in the hotel biz!
