Hotels: Now booking via Twitter

Travel startup Stayful is aiming to make online bookings even easier. Their new service that launched Tuesday #tweetstay, lets customers book hotels in major cities with a single tweet. Just sent a quick message to Stayful’s account with the city the travel is looking to visit, date and number of nights of stay and what type of hotel (budget, mid-range or luxe hotel) the traveler wants.

It’s simple – just write “@stayful #tweetstay I’m going to [destination] & want a[price] hotel, [arrival date], [# of nights],” reports Pursuitist.

The app and social media team then promises to deliver a great hotel room at a negotiated rate of less than what you could book online. The trip must be within 30 days.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

“Hotels want to make sure they book all their rooms, and travelers want a great deal,” Cheryl Rosner, Stayful's co-founder and CEO told Mashable. “Since we negotiate prices behind the scenes in real time, we can offer TweetStay customers a better price than they can find online."

Prices on hotels available through Stayful vary depending on the city, however the general range is $100 and under for a "budget" hotel (depending on the location), up to $150 for mid-priced, and higher for premium.

Currently, Yahoo Travel reports that Stayful serves Boston, New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans, Houston, Orlando, Miami, and many more.
