Think of it as the HotelTonight app, but for upscale and luxury hotels, offering great last minute deals. The new app called One Night was created by The Standard Hotels group and offers same-day bookings at luxury properties in New York and LA (Austin, Chicago, Las Vegas, Miami, and San Francisco coming soon). Rooms can only be booked after 3PM on the same day that you will be checking-in, though you can sometimes add another night.
I’ve been playing with the app for a bit, and I did find multiple mid-week nights with deals under $200 and many even under $150 here in NYC. However, the price is not the first thing the app displays as the company wants guests to choose their hotel on experience over price, they even provide a hour-by-hour experience guide with activities at your hotel and the neighborhood.
The Verge reports that the initial hotels bookable on the app include:
1 Hotel Central Park, 11 Howard, Gramercy Park Hotel, The Ludlow Hotel, The NoMad Hotel, Calamigos Guest Ranch & Beach Club, Casa Laguna Hotel & Spa, Oceana Beach Club Hotel, Palihotel Melrose, Palihouse Santa Monica, Palihouse West Hollywood, Petit Ermitage, The Redbury Hollywood, Refinery Hotel, SIXTY Beverly Hills, SIXTY SoHo, Sparrows Lodge, The Standard, High Line, The Standard, Hollywood, The Carlyle, The Line, The Wythe, Urban Cowboy, Viceroy Central Park, and the Viceroy L’Ermitage.
