We like to start our mornings by drooling over the gorgeous hotels featured in the Jetsetter daily e-mails, so we were thrilled when our parent company, TripAdvisor, acquired the upscale booking site earlier this year.
Last month, Jetsetter launched a new version of its helpful same-day hotel booking app: Jetsetter Now. The free Apple app lets you book hotels for the same night at rates of 60 percent off. How does Jetsetter get such cheap rates? The hotels remain a mystery until you've made your reservation, which means you won't know until you've finalized your booking where you'll be staying.
How can you know if you'll be staying somewhere good? Every property is Jetsetter-Verified, which means that a Jetsetter correspondent (more than 200 journalists from the world's top travel publications) has personally stayed at the property and verified that it's up to Jetsetter's high standards.
The Jetsetter Now app features new deals every day at noon and offers hotels in up to four categories per city (Classic, Hip, Contemporary, and Luxe). When I checked, there were great bargains available in New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Boston, and Chicago.
If you're in the market for a last-minute hotel, download Jetsetter Now and let us know what you think!
