- The hotels are categorized by style (such as Hip, Elegant and Basic) to appeal to a wide variety of travelers.
- Deals can be booked directly in the app in less than 10 seconds -- from app launch to booking confirmation screen, your hotel is booked in four taps on your smart phone.
- Bookings can be made until the sale ends, at 2:00 a.m., or until rooms sell out, in which case the hotels are replenished with the next-best hotel deal for that night.
