Hotel reservations by iPhone

by Alister POOLE on August 4, 2009

Travelling just gets easier and more fun all the time. Gadling now reports on a new iPhone application called HotelPal. You are driving along and start to feel tired. No need to drive around this block and the next one, looking for somewhere to stay.

With HotelPal the work is done for you. You just need to read the screen. Finding somewhere to stay is no longer a problem. You pull up your current GPS location on your iPhone, and get a list of all the hotels in the neighbourhood. The application will tell you how far away they are, as well as their current rates, show you photos and even room availability.

When you find the one that suits you best, you can go ahead and make a reservation, all from the comfort of your device.

HotelPal is ready for downloading from the App store now and bet of all, it’s free! If you leave your email address on their site, they’ll drop you a note when the application is ready to download.

The developers behind HotelPal have made quite a name for themselves with their other applications - FlightTrack and FlightTrack Pro. FlightTrack Pro is currently the number one travel application in the App store, so HotelPal has quite a reputation to live up to.
