Lots of settings, various features, nice interface
Non-intuitive interface, internet connection required, is lagging
Hotels.com – Hotel Reservation for Android wants to help you get some much needed rest and relaxation on your next trip. Browse hotels by price, amenity or via an array of other variables, then book your room directly within the app. This one looks good and functions well.
Hotels.com – Hotel Reservation displays in portrait to reveal a high impact start screen that features a horizontal scroller highlighting your most recently viewed properties near the bottom of your screen, a search bar at the top, and a Find Hotels Near Me button dead center. There's also a menu icon on the upper left that opens a side drawer of selections, including, notifications, manage bookings, rewards program and settings. On the top right of the main screen, there's a telephone icon used for calling Hotels.com directly. And finally, at the very bottom of your screen, is a coupon for 10% off your first booking via the app.
Searching for a hotel is as easy as typing in a city or zip code, though you could also find hotels near your physical location as well. Properties can be viewed on a vertically scrolling list or on a GPS map. Either way, you'll find some nice rooms here. I was particularly fond of the filtering options, which allow you to hone your results based on price, landmarks, neighborhood and amenities. Property listings include all the details you could possibly want for any given hotel, including lots of pictures and guest reviews too.
Hotels.com – Hotel Reservation is a quality hotel booking app, and the 10% off deal makes it very tantalizing to book via the app at least once.
