Hotel Tonight travel app
Free for Apple iOS devices and Google Android devices
Can I get you two a room? It'll only take a couple of minutes, thanks to a slick little app that's designed to get you into a nearby hotel, fast.
Just download the app, and sign up for a free account. You can use your Facebook logon to hook up. Hotel Tonight can let you search for rooms in dozens of major cities. Or you can set it to detect your location and automatically home in on the best nearby options.
The good news is that Hotel Tonight works with local lodging establishments to get you discounts on high-quality rooms. The bad news is that for now, its choices are rather limited. On a recent search, it offered a choice of just three Boston hotels. The company says that's because listed hotels must measure up to its exalted standards.
Makes sense, but Hotel Tonight would be more useful if it were a little less choosey. Still, it's a handy new way to find a place to stay.
