You've just rolled into town and need a room for the night. Sure, you could stroll up to the front desk of the nearest hotel and pay top dollar. Or you could use Hotel Tonight to score the same room at a significant discount. DealBase's free app is a money-saving must for travelers who can't (or won't) plan in advance, and it's a lot easier to use than Priceline's bidding process.
Hotel Tonight negotiates deals with a handful of top hotels in several dozen major U.S. cities, as well as in Toronto, Vancouver, and London. The app's discounts vary but are usually quite good. For instance, I found a room at a Boston luxury hotel marked down from $390 to $195. (Note: The cheapest room rate on the hotel's website was also $390, so the Hotel Tonight discount was real.)
