There are a lot of reasons why you might need (or want) to book a hotel room last minute, and these days there are plenty of apps to get you good rates when you do. Here are a few of the best.
JetSetter’s Now feature offers up to 60 percent off on same-night hotel stays. The app has its limits however since it only offers listings in the biggest cities. Think New York, Miami, Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
Hotel Tonight posts nightly hotel deals each day at noon. The app’s hotel categories include things like hip, luxe, solid, basic, or charming, and they have a “Why We Like It” section where people have explained why they did. The app does not guarantee the listed rates until you check in at the hotel, however, they tend to have some the best discounts of all of the apps.
Travelocity has its own “Deals Tonight” section as well. The feature lets you feature by hotel name, user rating, different amenities offered, price, distance, etc. Some of the deals don’t tell you which hotel they are at, but they do tell you the stars that it’s been rated and which category of potential hotels that falls into.
