Anyone tried same day booking app from Hotel Tonight?

Same-day booking app HotelTonight predicts the future too - CNET

 

As I fall further and further behind in the lodging technology game, I realize that even I, the long haired, overfed, leaping gnome of a Luddite might have to jump on the bandwagon with at least some of the latest gadgets. This is a three year old app, that now that the big boys like Priceline and Expedia have gotten into the same day booking deal, have now gone to predicting where deals will be. Currently on I-phone (and others state it's also available on Android).

Have any of you more up to date Insiders had any experience with this app or anything similar? If so (or not), what are your thoughts? Does Marriott play with these guys?  I can only learn a handful of new things, so I must choose carefully. Thank you for your insights.

    Hey you overfed long hair, is "app" short for application and if so where do you get one?

     

    I prefer to have a small number of those things on my Droid so have only apps that I use frequently such as Maps in order to help me find my way home from places I hardly ever visit like the airport, golf course or the "pharmacy" when I restock my "meds".

     

    Actually I will occasionally use the Marriott, UA, and Avis apps and that's about it, so I'll be interested in what other Insiders use and their findings.

    I've always have been uneasy about using the those type of applications as your hotel room type is not guaranteed and your receive no points or perks for your stay.  I have however used Priceline many times to get deals on rental cars.

      Perfect. That's good enough for me, thanks for the insight. I can now continue to invest my time in old school hunting through my good pal, the Marriott.com pricing grid.

    Nope, and have no plans to do so!
