Popular travel site Orbitz just released a shiny new Android app designed to help users book hotels from their devices quickly and easily. The app, aptly named Hotels by Orbitz, should make traveling a little bit easier. With this new app, you can not only find a hotel, but you can also book it directly from the app, so there is no need to pull out the computer.
When using the new app, you can search for hotels closest to your current location. This is helpful if you find yourself needing a hotel at the last-minute. If you are looking to book a place in advance, you can search for hotels almost anywhere by simply typing in the location.
The app has plenty of ways to sort hotels to help you find the one that works for you. You can sort by price, value, and distance. Clicking on any hotel will let you see reviews, amenities, and the choice of rooms available. This should help you narrow down the hotels to the perfect one.
So far the app is getting good reviews on Google Play. As of this writing, it is sitting at 4.9 stars, with a little less than 20 reviews. To go along with the release of this app, Orbitz is offering a 10% discount for any booking done through the app. This deal is good through this Sunday, October 21. If you’ve been meaning to book a hotel for your next trip, now just might be the perfect time.
