Book a Last-Minute Room: Hotel Tonight
Click Factor: Ask any traveler who has been stranded at an airport in the middle of the night: finding a last-minute room can be an expensive hassle, since most hotel reservation services are closed by midnight. This new app can book you a room as late as 2 a.m., often at reduced rates. To make things simple, just three hotel results pop up on any given search. The app is available for 13 cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York, and more are being added every month.
Drawback: The service is a mobile-only app, so while you can technically access the site from a computer Web browser, you won’t be able to book.
