Best Hotel Booking Apps

Hotel booking apps can save you precious time and the valuable dollar when you're booking a Midtown Manhattan hotel or a boutique Manhattan hotel. We've gathered two hotel booking apps that will get you to the front desk in a flash. Hotel Tonight (iPhone, iPad, Android) If you're looking to stay in Midtown tonight, but you haven't booked a room, give Hotel Tonight a shot. Hotel Tonight offers great rates on those spur of the moment Manhattan excursions, as well as planned travel to a host of other cities. From a weekend stay at a ranch in Wyoming to a week-long stay at a luxury hotel on the Big Island, Hotel Tonight claims to offer discounts of up to 70 percent off published rates. Bonus: For convenience sake, use your Facebook credentials to sign in. Jetsetter (iPhone, iPad) The Jetsetter app has a few unique hotel booking features that we adore. First, it offers "flash sales" of short hotel stays and even entire vacations; it provides 360-degree room tours; and perhaps its coolest feature (besides the fact that it claims to save you up to 50 percent off published rates) is its "Bucket List." As you might guess, Bucket List lets you save trips to all those location you're sure to get to one of these days â?" like Broadway for example! If you want to spend the money you saved on some new clothing or accessories, Jettsetter makes it easy to jazz up your wardrobe with discount items for men, women and kids. You know you need a new handbag for shopping in Midtown. Hotel booking doesn't have to be grueling. In fact getting a great deal on a boutique Manhattan hotel like Hotel Mela can be fun when you take advantage of one of these priceless apps.
