Last time HotelTonight added new cities, they announced support for Miami and Seattle. Now they’re going for the Sin City tourists, allowing them to book same-day stays (until 2am) at major hotels including Caesars Palace, Trump International Hotel, The Palms and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, among others.
The pitch is simple – take last-minute trips to Vegas “without having to gamble on lodging.” In that sense, this is great news for people living in cities like Los Angeles, San Diego or Phoenix, who can book a room en route in just 10 seconds.
But wait there’s more. In addition to the Las Vegas launch, HotelTonight is also introducing a new social function for hotels called “Happening Tonight,” allowing them [hotels] to send short, timely messages to users within the app. For instance, tonight the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas is giving HotelTonight bookers a free upgrade to the luxurious HRH Tower, while the Sagamore in Miami is throwing in a $50 local restaurant certificate, and Hotel 71 in Chicago is offering a pair of free tickets to tonight’s Sox game. Love it! 🙂
