HotelQuickly, the Asia Pacific-focused last-minute hotel booking app which launched last year, is broadening its focus to allow users to book rooms the day before their check in.
The app works with hotels in 12 different countries, in the same style as HotelTonight — offering hotels the chance to sell their unused inventories, and enabling customers to buy discounted stays. Previously, the window for booking a room ran from 08:00 AM to 04:00 AM the same day, but now bookings can be made the day before check-in.
In addition, the re-designed app has added filters to sort hotels by price and third-party reviews of hotels. In addition, more partners are offering multi-night bookings, a feature that was added last year. HotelQuickly’s founders say the app has been downloaded more than 400,000 times across iOS, Android and BlackBerry 10.
The service claims more than 2,500 “hand-picked” partners, covering over 100 destinations across 12 markets in Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
