Hotel Tonight is an iPhone and iPad app that offers awesome last-minute deals on hotels in 12 countries and over 80 destinations. It features a gorgeous design that does a great job of showing off the amenities of the hotels.

Instead of a boring list of locations with just text and maybe thumbnails, Hotel Tonight features long strips of beautiful photos to represent each location, and when you tap on a location, the list of available hotels are displayed as little stacks of photos.

When viewing a hotel, a collage of photos of the destination are displayed. You can scroll around indefinitely to view all the photos in different sizes, or tap on an image to view them full screen.

I recommend not browsing through Hotel Tonight unless you're actually in need of a hotel; otherwise, be warned that you may fall prey of the gorgeous presentation and plan a last minute getaway.
