If you like a little bit of risk, and you’re a flexible traveler, you can save money on short hotel stays if you book the same day you check in. Instead of having vacant rooms, hotels will offer a discount rate through last-minute booking apps. This way, the properties can make some money on their empty rooms without devaluing them. The right app will depend on your destination, your preferred type of accommodation, and of course, your budget. Check out two great options below!
Perhaps the most popular last-minute booking app in the United States, Hotel Tonight only focuses on reservations up until seven days (100 days in some markets) before your stay. You’ll find discounts of up to 70% with hotels arranged in distinct categories: basic, solid, luxe, hip, charming and high roller. The booking process is easy with just a few taps. Once you’ve reserved your room, you can extend your stay for additional nights at select hotels.
Hotel Tonight also comes with a reward program. As you move up different tiers, you’ll unlock spend thresholds, cheaper rates, in-app concierge service and credits. Once you gain a level, it won’t ever expire, so you can only move up from there.
This boutique app offers same-day bookings and features a beautiful, image-driven interface, chic descriptions and a curated list of premium hotels. The latter is no surprise, as One Night is operated by Standard International, the company behind the trendy and luxe Standard Hotels.
Other properties that made the cut share similar design and lifestyle experiences which, although limiting, appeals highly to a particular subset of travelers.
Currently, One Night offers selections in:
- Los Angeles
- New York
- New Orleans
- Palm Springs
- San Francisco
- The Hamptons
- Upstate New York
- Washington D.C.
Check-in time is from 3pm, so you can make your reservations on the same day. If you’d like to stay longer, you can add one extra night to your booking.
