HotelTonight bolsters bookings via mobile deals app

The new service lets hotels send messages to guests, letting them know about events happening that night in the hotel or other special discounts. Additionally, the hotel booking app now offers last-minute deals where users can book same-day stays – until 2 a.m. at major hotels in Las Vegas.

HotelTonight has experienced rapid success with more than 350,000 downloads since its launch in January 2011.
