Today, the latest version of HotelTonight for iOS was released, and the team at the last-minute hotel booking company wants you to know that swiping left as well as right are all good things. “We’re particularly excited about how you can swipe to get from one tab to the next,” the company’s press release proclaims.
Now, creating a life less planned is easier to manage with tabs that have been added in to the interface for easier navigation.
Better still is that the new update includes something that HotelTonight users have been demanding: rate tracking. People really want to know how rates change as the day of the stay approaches, and rightfully so: they often drop as the check-in day gets closer.
When you search for dates for tomorrow and up to a week out, you’ll see the option to “Track It” at the top of the page.
Tap “Track It” and you’ll get daily push notifications about changes in price, as well as how many new hotels have added rooms to the city you’re tracking, up until the dates you searched for. HotelTonight is always looking for the most amazing last-minute deals, and hotels are continually adding new rooms and changing their prices.
This means that the hotels and rates are constantly changing on HotelTonight. If you’re not seeing the right hotel for you, or if you want to be updated when new hotels load rooms, or if you’re just curious about how rates change day-to-day, rate tracking is a great way to stay in the know.
Rate tracking is also useful if you’re thinking about a business trip or weekend getaway, but not sure you’ll actually have that meeting or be able to get that sitter. While you refine your plans, HotelTonight will work on getting you better and better rates.
This is also perfect for those power-procrastinators fond of waiting until the very, very last-minute to snag a deal.
