Save Major Money While Traveling

Mom Jeans & Mimosas

 Imagine waiting last minute to book a hotel and ending up in a five star hotel (yes, they still rate hotels with stars) with amenities that beat anything you have at home.  Not to mention the view, the location and the fact they flaunt their removable wooden hangers without the lock.  Yes, if you have "hotel'd" frequently then you will know what I'm talking about.
 I laughed when they said there was a pool that you couldn't swim in because it was designated for relaxation only.  Pretentious AF but I was in love.  My husband, who's clever in all ways to save a penny, booked this hotel the previous night.  Mind you, that he is solely responsible for the lives (and well being) of 4 people including himself.  But that didn't scare him because he used the Hotel Tonight app which saved an enormous amount of money.  

Here's how.

Hotel Tonight is an app that offers great deals on Hotels last minute.
While you can book rooms up to seven days in advance, same day bookings your best bet. Since hotels are trying to fill their rooms, Hotel Tonight often has uber discounted rates that other online travel agents can’t match.

Use this code for $25 off: ALMEJIA8 

Simply sign up, select the city you are staying in, 
(Currently Hotel Tonight lists rooms in well over a hundred cities located across more than 20 countries.) and dates you wish to stay.  Then, the app will give you a list of available hotels. Prices will change based on availability and rates.  You can book 7 days in advance now!

You may notice that Hotel Tonight has a descriptive word next to the hotels featured.  This is a one word description that can be broken down like this:

₁ Crash pad 
A budget hostel with the bare minimum.  I literally never see this one here in LA but you may see it in different countries.

₂ Basic
A modest hotel with very minimum extras.  

₃ Solid
Reliable and comfortable would describe "Solid".  Expect all the basic amenities and well known names.

₄ Charming
Quaint and intimate is what you can expect to find in these smaller chains, B&B or shared housing.

₅ Hip
A stylish, sometimes quirky hot spot that’s as popular with in-the-know locals as it is with travelers.  We have stayed at one in San Francisco before and really liked it.  

⁶ Luxe
A swanky, upscale hotel that offers serious pampering and a cushy stay. For instance, The Scarlet Huntington we stayed in had a spa and offered a baby sitter to watch our kids if we didn't feel like adulting...

⁷ High Roller
 An over-the-top, tricked-out suite or penthouse for VIPs and high rollers.

About OUR stay:

We stayed at the Scarlet Huntington in Nob Hill San Francisco.  Just for one night, we checked in early and checked out late.  We were upgraded for an extra $50 to a suite on the 11th floor with a southern view and eastern view.  The hotel had everything you could imagine.  It was clean, quiet and felt luxurious.  This was the second time we used Hotel Tonight.  If you want to see how last time worked out for us click here.

I highly suggest using Hotel tonight for any on-the-go last minute vacation stays or when you simply need to stay the night somewhere.  Isn't that what hotels used to be about before all these apps came out?  If you want to try it out, make sure to save $25 by using the code ALMEJIA8 at checkout.  

This post was in no way sponsored by the Hotel Tonight app.  All thoughts and views are my own.
