Labor Day: Last-minute hotel deals that cost less than $100 a night

Hotel Tonight says it's not to late to go somewhere at these low prices for hotel stays.

No plans for Labor Day? Why not get out of town, even if it's just for a single night. Same-day hotel booking app Hotel Tonight will be offering $59 to $99 last-minute rooms in key cities around the country.

The app's Endless Summer promotion can save up to 45% off room prices, the company says in a release. App users can browse same-day prices and "Look Ahead" to see estimates on rates for upcoming nights. Hotel prices are posted at 9 a.m. local time each day and may be booked until 2 a.m. for a same-day stay.

Travelers who use the app Sunday night in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Sacramento of Phoenix can expect to find rooms for $59 a night. Pay $79 a night in Portland, Ore.; San Diego; and Denver, and $99 a night in New York City, New Orleans and San Francisco.

I checked the app's Las Vegas deals for Thursday night and found Endless Summer rates of $24 at the Four Queens Hotel & Casino and $41 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. (Priceline's same-day app also showed $41 for the Hard Rock on Thursday as well as $35 for the Luxor and $21 for the Riviera Hotel and Casino.)

Hotel Tonight expects Las Vegas, New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego to be the most popular Labor Day destinations this year.

If you miss the holiday weekend, Hotel Tonight says Brooklyn, N.Y.; Las Vegas; and Washington, D.C., are the best fall destinations, where you can save 30% to 50% on hotel prices. Boca Raton, Fla.; Providence, R.I.; and Laguna Beach are best beach and vacation areas to score a low-priced room in September and October.
