Last Minute Luxury Hotel Rooms + Discount Code

February 28th, 2014 No Comments

Banyan Tree Bangkok

I wrote about the Hotel Tonight app a while ago.  Have you used it yet?  I check in on it every now and find tons of luxury hotel rome available for a steal! I’m dying to try it for my next trip.

Here’s how HT works.  At 12pm on the day you’re looking to stay, you go on the HotelTonight app and find the a list of the best possible deals on hotels (because they’re last minutes).  It’s a bit risky, but the reward is big:  you can stay in a beautiful place for a fraction of the cost.  They index all of the major hotel chains in countless cities across the globe.

I think this is a great idea for someone traveling on business who has a budget to stick to for their room rate.  Or a Vegas trip where you don’t stay in your room that often.  I instantly thought of my time in Bangkok when we stayed at the Banyan Tree (above).  We wouldn’t have cared about the hotel as long as the room was nice.

Book before March 31 and use my discount code: Mary25 for $25 off your stay.

Safe travels!

Last minute steals on hot hotels – Hotel Tonight

Hotel Tonight iPhone App

It’s summer time, be spontaneous, treat yourself to a little vacay!  You don’t have to escape the states or have a big budget to do it.  Since you’re also short on time, skip the hotel hunt and download the Hotel Tonight app to find just what you’re looking for RIGHT NOW.

Hotel Tonight lists available hotel rooms starting “tonight” at a huge discount in what seems like every major US city.  Hotels want to book their rooms just as badly as you want to stay there, so if you make a reservation at the last minute, you could score a great deal with this app.

The interface is slick and easy to use.  For each hotel, you’ll find pictures of the rooms, restaurants, and ammenities so you get all the info you would online. Each hotel is also categorized (basic, hip, solid, luxe, charming, etc) so you can filter your search.

The only downfall I’ve found after a quick browse through the app is the offerings are all over the map in terms of your current location. In other words, if you’re unfamiliar with the city you’re in, you could be excited to book a gorgeous room and then see it’s located 25 miles from you.

Also, the deals don’t register until noon in the local timezone so no need to be the early bird to get the worm.
