Curated last-minute hotel booking service HotelTonight has been building out its brand over the past few years, becoming the go-to mobile service for same-day hotel bookings. HotelTonight has hitherto let you reserve same-day hotel rooms from 9am on the day for up to 70 percent below the standard price. That’s all about to change though. HotelTonight is now introducing refreshed versions of its Android, Windows Phone and iOS apps, which include a fresh design and a handful of notable new features, including curated themed ‘Playlists’ of hotels with recommendations on where and when to book, based on aspects such as weather and availability. With that in mind, we’re also told that in-app weather forecasts will be introduced, designed to suggest where to stay (e.g. a beach hotel if it’s predicted to be sunny) and what you should pack in your bags. However, the most notable development with these updates, which should be going live any time now, is that you will now be able to book much further in advance.
