{Travel Tips} Hotel Tonight

A few months ago I was introduced to the app Hotel Tonight. I'm always searching for travel hacks and how to maximize my travel budget. So, when I discovered an app that allowed me to stay in 4 and 5 star hotels at a steeply discounted rate, I was hooked! I've used it 5 times in the last few months in both the U.S. and Europe.

When hotels have unsold rooms, they load them on the app, which means you get incredible deals. We screen every hotel featured, and only work with ones you’ll love. By booking on HotelTonight you get the flexibility to play it by ear, while knowing you’ll get a great price and a great place to stay.

The catch is that you can only reserve hotels 7 days in advance of your travel dates. You have to be willing to be a little spontaneous! I normally begin monitoring the deals the week prior to the trip. In my experience, the best deals are truly at the last minute (aka the day before). I've paid approximately $100 per night for 4 star hotels each time. I recently used Hotel Tonight for a stay in Washington D.C. and while checking in I was informed the rate I got for the hotel was less than half of what the hotel was charging guests!

I love how the app is so user friendly and everything can be done on my iPhone. I can view hotel and traveler photos, reviews, hotel amenities, maps, and more. The booking process is incredibly simple. After entering credit card information, you click "reserve" and it's done. Several of the properties include a concierge service which is beneficial for hotel questions (ex. Can I check-in early? What are the best local restaurants?). The concierge service is really what sets apart this app from other sites such as Priceline and Expedia. You communicate with the concierge directly through the app and in my experience I've received responses within minutes of a question or request.
