The slick Hotel Tonight app, known as the service that lets you book discounted same-day hotel reservations via your phone, recently expanded its reach to let users reserve rooms a full seven days beforehand. That's fantastic news for the not-so-spontaneous travelers among us. This way, planning a last-minute weekend trip doesn't have to come quite so far down to the wire—and you still get the benefit of the app's HT Price Guarantee: If you see the same hotel on the same night listed at a lower price elsewhere, Hotel Tonight will fill your account with HT Credits for the difference.
Other cool features of the latest Hotel Tonight update: You can scroll through themed hotel "playlists," like weekend getaways within driving distance or "Great Hotels with Killer Bar Scenes," to help you decide where to set up shop. The app also provides weather forecasts to help you select an appropriate hotel—for example, one that has a notable spa during a weekend when it's supposed to rain.
Wanna try it? There's an extra incentive: The app (available for iOS, Android, and Windows) is offering an immediate 10 percent back in Hotel Tonight Credits for anyone who makes a booking during the month of October - you can then use the discount on your next reservation. Get all the details here.
