HotelTonight Launched

Aussie go-getters can now live more spontaneously and save up to 50 percent on an impressive selection of last minute, hand-picked hotel deals, with the launch of leading mobile-only booking app HotelTonight.

The Silicon Valley born app, which boasts 13 million downloads globally, is on a short list of tech disrupters making waves down under.

With the goal of bringing spontaneity and excitement back into travel, the simple and sleek in-app booking system utilises geo-tagging to identify the user’s location before presenting a curated list of hotel properties with enticing last-minute rates. These great value hotel deals are available up to seven days in advance.

HotelTonight Regional Director for Asia Pacific, Stefan Cordiner, says the brand is anticipating high levels of interest in the company’s ‘plan less, live more’ mantra and exciting range of Hip, Luxe, Solid and Basic hotels amongst travel-loving Australians.

“We are really excited to be leading the mobile revolution in the global and Australian hotel booking industry, a revolution that is not simply a part of our business, it is our business. We like to shake things up for people and make travelling a little more spontaneous and fun, and we think Australia is more than ready for our brand of spontaneity,” he said.

“The app curates Australian properties, with a spotlight on unique stays, and has a rate track feature that alerts you to when hotel prices in your area have dropped. I think this is what people become hooked on once they start using it.”

HotelTonight is a free app, available for download from the App Store and suitable for iOS and Android devices.
