HotelTonight launches in Dubai
04 October, 2015
HotelTonight, a mobile-phone app that offers last- minute hotel bookings, said on Sunday that it has launched in Dubai. The San Francisco-based start-up said that hotels operated by international chains and independent properties have committed to working with it. However, it did not give the names of the properties. HotelTonight said that leisure and business travellers will have access to rooms at a reduced rate through the app. One in every four hotel rooms is going empty every night on average, it said, adding that the opportunity for hotels to market and sell unoccupied rooms is “huge”.
