The first thing you need to do is to not book a hotel until you either know where you want to be (totally fine) or until you arrive (totally awesome!). In fact, there is nothing better than just in time travel and booking a hotel the same day. I know this is a bit aggressive and not for the faint of heart (certainly doesn't work over high season) but is exhilarating and great for the traveler who values adventure and flexibility. Hotel Tonight (HT) specializes in daily inventory and provides incredible deals. They do a lot of work behind the scenes to make sure that the prices are significantly discounted and the hotels meet their internal standards. In fact, HT rates the hotels (Luxe, Hip, Solid, Charming, Basic, etc.), provides a description of what is unique about the hotel, as well as provides user comments so you can make this somewhat important decision on the fly. The app is easy to navigate and you can even choose a hotel by neighborhood so you can be where you want to be. You can use the Promo Code BVERONA and get $25 off your first booking! You may make a mistake, but remember, it is only one night!
