Still Another App Launches--This Time From Hotwire

October 15, 2012 at 7:23 PM | by | ()

Given one of our HC crew just went on a mini rant about technology, we're giggling a bit about all these new travel apps that seem to be coming out weekly-blah-daily. Some of them are good and we frequently use them, but now the word "app" is becoming a pain in our "apps"..if you will.

The latest comes from Hotwire who has just released their own iPhone app for discounts on last-minute hotel rooms located in 3145 cities and 61 countries. So now they join HotelTonight and most recently Jetsetter in this category of mobile applications capitalizing on a hotel's unused room inventory. OK, so what makes this one different?

Well, first it's only available on the iPhone and iTouch, and more specifically, designed to work best with the new iOS 6 and iPhone 5. Ay. So, what, they are they anti-Android?

There are other tiny differences that won't really matter in the long run if all you want to do is quickly find a hotel room at a good price, which Hotwire assures you'll be able to do within 30 seconds using their app. But we're not completely sold.

Where Can I Find A Last-Minute Hotel In San Francisco For Under $200?

September 14, 2011 at 9:30 AM | by | ()

When we saw Alyson Shontell, reporter for Business Insider had booked herself a room in SF for a conference this week, but quickly regretted her choice of hotel, we felt guilty. We should have helped her back when she tweeted out for hotel selections in SF. But better late than never, right?

Well, our first thought was, eesh. September is a notoriously busy month for all hotels—not just in San Fran. But it turns out there are some good finds out there right now, and Union Square isn't exactly lacking in hotel options—so when you do find the good deals, it becomes that much more exciting! For starters, take the Palace Hotel, an historic hotel located just a few steps from the Montgomery St BART station, where a King bed starts at just $189.
