HotelTonight is one of the more interesting hotel booking apps on Android. The service gets you booked up with a hotel in under 10 minutes, and it does it while giving you some pretty decent rates. It’s basically geared toward last-minute shoppers who, for one reason or another, couldn’t book a hotel ahead of time. It takes this niche to the extreme by forcing you to book a hotel for rates starting on the night that you’re booking, and some hotels are even limited to maximum stays of one night.
With that all out of the way, you’ll be happy to know that it’s gotten a nice new upgrade over in the Google Play Store. The biggest change today will be the addition of a tablet-specific user interface for those using the service on a bigger screen.
With that added screen real estate comes a cool new collage view so you can view listings in a more beautiful and intuitive format than your typical scrolling list. The app also features both portrait and landscape user interfaces for those who value that preference. It’s sad to have to point that out, but some apps still lock you into one or the other in this day and age so we’ll award them an imaginary blue ribbon for going the full nine yards. Head to the Play Store and get your last-minute booking on for free.
