Hotels by Orbitz

Orbitz.com, the travel booking site, has released a new app, Hotels by Orbitz. The app is designed for a singular purpose: to help you locate hotels and book them through Orbitz.

With the app, you can search hotels that are closest to your current location or specify a different one if you're planning ahead. Once you see the list of hotels, you can sort by value, price and distance. When trying to decide on one, you can view reviews, amenities and see all room options available. Orbitz then provides an easy way to book the room if you choose.

To celebrate the release of the app, Orbitz is offering a 10% discount on any hotels booked through the app through Sunday, Oct. 21.

This makes sense for Orbitz. They want to help customers book more rooms and the mobile space is becoming increasingly significant to do that.

The app is free and available from the Google Play Store.

I've had nothing but problems booking on Orbitz (Air or Hotel) and I swore that I will never use them. There's nothing like booking directly on the carrier's website. For a $10-$20 savings average, it's not worth the hassle of being given the run around. Doing a quick "Google" of their customer service will give you more info.
