Stuff happens: Flights are canceled, connections missed, itineraries change, and we need a last-minute room for the night, without busting the budget. It’s fun, simple to navigate, and lets you make last-minute bookings in 65-plus cities throughout North America and Europe. Even better: Hotels hate unsold rooms and are often willing to offer deep discounts at the last minute. Hotel Tonight posts last-minute room rates, sometimes up to 70 percent off normal rack rates, in a range of categories like Basic and Luxe. Searches pull out same-day availability; you can’t book before noon, but you can book more than one night at some properties.
