HotelTonight is a free mobile app for last-minute hotel stays and it works on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Here's how it works: Every day at noon HotelTonight releases 3 hotel deals per city — one hip, one elegant and one basic — that you can book right then and there. With reviews and photos, you'll know exactly what you're getting. So whether you're traveling to a city and need a room, or a local looking for a night out or a weekend staycation, this app helps you do it at a discount.

The company originally serviced six cities, but as of last night they added in two more. So now you can find hotels in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, Seattle, Miami, and Washington, DC. More cities will be added every month, with Dallas, Philadelphia and Atlanta launching soon. You can book up to five nights on a stay, if available.

To sweeten the deal, everyone who downloads the app and registers with HotelTonight gets a $25 credit towards their next booking. Refer a friend and you'll get another $25 credit.

HotelTonight currently works with more than 130 notable hotel partners, including Thompson Beverly Hills in Los Angeles, Hotel Nikko in San Francisco, Ace Hotel in New York, Amalfi Hotel in Chicago, The River Inn in Washington, DC, Copley Square Hotel in Boston, Pelican Hotel in Miami and Hotel 1000 in Seattle.

What are the deals like? Last Friday this was listed for Miami:
•Hip - The Wave Hotel - $159 (regular price $227)
•Elegant - The Beacon Hotel - $245 (regular $330)
•Basic - Dorchester Hotel - $149 (regular $179)

As mentioned, this is a free app, so it's definitely worth downloading to check out.
