Hotel Tonight Android app is your best bet for deals on-the-go

by Kate Currin

Traveling in a major U.S. city and need a hotel immediately? If you want a good deal and are open to exploring new lodgings, the free Hotel Tonight app for Android just might have the perfect place for you to stay. It is so simple to use. You open up this travel app and a select grouping of hotels for stellar deals pops up in your location. There are only a few selections because this is how the app guarantees great deals.

I love how this savvy app classifies hotels by qualifiers such as “Solid,” “Hip,” and “Charming.” “Solid” seems to classify a place to stay with not a lot of frills whereas “Hip” would be the hotel to stay if you are looking for the ‘it’ crowd and night life. I would stay in any of the Chicago selections that have popped up when I used the app, so I will definitely use this app to book hotel stays for visiting friends and family. And because I trust the Chicago offerings, I am apt to try it on my next road or business trip as well. The other day they had a room at the Wynn in Las Vegas for under $150. Talk about a steal!

Deals are available based on how many nights you are staying, so double-check when you are booking and make sure that you are able to use that deal for more than one night. Deals refresh each day at noon local time for each city and are available up until 2 a.m. Definitely make sure to invite your friends to use this travel app, too. When they book, you get a $25 credit! And since most of the deals that I saw were under $100 a night, once you deduct the credit, you can plan a super affordable staycation anywhere.
