Those HotelTonight folks are real mavericks — they just released a feature that helps you plan your spontaneity.
This may sounds silly, but if true spontaneity doesn’t actually fit into your lifestyle, this is a nice alternative, as it lets you check predicted room rates for the week ahead.
The new feature, Look Ahead, gives you a snapshot of last-minute room rates; expected savings; hotel availability; if any events, conferences or promotions are happening; and other details for the upcoming week.
The mobile-only’s core app enables travelers to check it in the morning and see vacancies in the location of their choice for that same night.
“We built Look Ahead to answer one of the most common questions we get about HotelTonight: ‘The rates look great tonight, but what will they look like tomorrow, or next week?’” said chief executive Sam Shank in an official statement.
HotelTonight has been working on forecasting and predicting for quite some time, including with its acquisition of restaurant table forecasting company PrimaTable in 2012.
