The Deal

Hotel: Surfcomber Miami Beach

List Price: $499<

HotelTonight Price: $229 (Included Ocean Front Upgrade)

Two weeks ago I found myself on the tarmac of Miami International Airport, about 30 minutes from South Beach, with no hotel booked. While some frequent flyers might have their stomach churn at the thought of not having a hotel booked upon arriving into a new city – for me – it is a feeling of liberation.

I pulled out my phone and fired up a new app called HotelTonight to book my hotel room. While I was aware of the app, there were few circumstances that would have warranted its use. Today was a perfect example.


The options were plenty and I eventually settled on booking a Kimpton, The Surfcomber, which is located in the heart of South Beach. The booking process from the app was extremely easy. You enter in the city you are traveling too, and provide the immediate dates (tonight or tomorrow) and it displays the best options.

The Surfcomber Miami: A Good Deal?

When you book on a OTA or discount travel site, you generally expect the worst possible room. In this case, the Surfcomber room was absolutely spectacular. It had a private balcony that overlooked the hotel’s pool and breathtaking view. I had a gorgeous King Bed and the room was spacious.

The Surfcomber Miami is a stunning hotel that has wonderful service, and excellent accommodations.

Overall, my experience with the HotelTonight app was fantastic. I highly recommend it to anyone.
