This is good news: Hotel Tonight is now offering the ability to reserve a night at one of the hotels in their app up to seven days in advance! Whereas before you could only take advantage of their deals starting at around 9am of the day when you wanted to find a place to sleep that night, now you can plan ahead a bit.
I still think the last minute nature of this app is probably the best part. I’ve used it a few times and it was pretty much always a last minute totally necessary thing. It’s less about finding the perfect hotel and more about surviving when you don’t have a place to stay.
We used it once when we were coming back from Santa Barbara after a laaaate late late night. Still three hours away from home, we looked up a place to stay in Monterey. We watched the sunset, walked on the beach (beach front hotel!), and crashed probably before 9pm – I remember Sam fell asleep while we still had the lights on. We were exhausted. Hotel Tonight came to the rescue! (See a post about that stay HERE.)
We used it once when were in Paris and couldn’t find a place to stay in the South of France for the next night. We were rejected from like four AirBnB places and were freaking out. We ended up booking a night at a funky hotel in Paris the Kube Hotel, spending the evening at the Louvre, and not freaking out anymore. Win!
Last but not least, we used Hotel Tonight once when we were in Zurich at the Hotel Plattenhoff. We were coming from Venice and our AirBnB didn’t have internet, even though it said it would. It was hard, trying to book a place again. AirBnB wasn’t quite as popular in Zurich/Switzerland in general. We booked a GREAT stay at this funny little hotel. It was really close to downtown, had GREAT internet (we stayed up all night booking places to go next and eating candy in a hotel bathrobe – weird, I know), and a really tasty Easter breakfast with colored eggs in the morning. (Yay, Easter!)
Anyways. There ya go. It’s nice to get a place early on, I get that and I will always stand by short term planning over finding a place to stay the morning of, BUT (and this is a big big BUT) shit happens when you’re traveling. Shit happens and a great back up plan like Hotel Tonight is always great to have.
Of course, this 7 days ahead thing is a game changer… You can now be less in the shit before pulling out your phone and solving the problem! haha.
Okay, that’s it. ‘Adventure25‘ and you’re good to go!
