Priceline.com's (Nasdaq: PCLN) Hotel Negotiator® was recently recognized as the Best Mobile App at the Asia Pacific Travel Innovation Awards, sponsored by TravelMole and EyeforTravel.  The awards competition was open to companies that promote tourism in the Asia Pacific region.

Priceline.com's popular app comes in two versions.  The Android version supports last-minute hotel room bookings up until 11:00 p.m. local time on the night a room is needed.  The version for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch supports hotel bookings, and it includes a last-minute rental car booking service. The app offers over 165,000 hotels throughout Asia, North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Priceline's Hotel Negotiator® app offers many ways to find and book a great last-minute hotel deal.  Key features include:

  • Tonight-Only Deals®.  When users choose a city, they'll see an exclusive inventory of 3- and 4-star hotels that can be booked for check-in that same night at discounts of up to 35% off published prices.
  • Over 165,000 published-price hotels to choose from.  The Hotel Negotiator app spans the globe with a broad spectrum of hotels in all star categories, complete with photos, maps, reviews and customer satisfaction scores.
  • Winning Bids recommendations.  Choose a city and the Hotel Negotiator app displays multiple recent winning Name Your Own Price® bids made by other priceline.com customers for hotels in different parts of the city at different star levels.  Travelers using Name Your Own Price® choose their city, neighborhood, star level, dates and price, then receive their specific hotel itinerary once their bid is accepted.
  • Shake-Down geo-locator-triggered hotel search.  Shaking the device establishes the traveler's location using location-based features and then performs a Winning Bids search for hotels in the surrounding areas.
  • Native navigation.  Users of Apple and Android devices will instantly recognize the device-specific native navigational tools (like slides, cards and wheels) that guide them through their Hotel Negotiator shopping and booking experience.
