The HotelTonight Mission
Revolutionize the way people book hotels.
HotelTonight helps top-rated hotels sell their unsold inventory and offers consumers up to 70% off same-day bookings using their iPhone, iPad, or Android devices. Users love our sleek design, amazing deals and credible ease of use (3 taps and a swipe to book). In just over a year and a half, our app has received over 3.5 million downloads, amazing reviews in the App Store and Google Play, and expanded from 3 cities to 80+ cities in the US and abroad.
In addition, we are the first company to build a booking engine in the last 10 years and have an extensive back end system for managing hotels and inventory.
HotelTonight was founded by travel-industry pioneers.
Our CEO Sam Shank was CEO of DealBase, a travel deals search engine. He was also CEO of TravelPost.com, a hotel reviews site that was acquired by SideStep and he stayed on as VP of business development until the company was acquired by Kayak.
Our COO Jared Simon helped lunched the hotel business at Orbitz.com and served as general manager of the company's Lodging.com brand.
Our CTO Chris Bailey was CTO of DealBase.com and earlier was an architect and senior computer scientist at Adobe Systems.
Life at HotelTonight
Located in the heart of downtown San Francisco, we set aggressive goals and work hard to crush them, but we make time to decompress, whether working it out at ping pong, hosting an impromptu happy hour, taking funny snapshots on a scavenger hunt or playing dodge ball at House of Air. Not to brag, but we're clearly fun -- the kind of team that bangs on a gong when you ship something amazing and shares our awkward adolescent photos for a laugh.
