It’s an exciting time in the mobile hotel booking industry. It was only a generation ago that booking a hotel consisted of searching for a good travel agent, fighting with language barriers, and hoping that when you showed up at the hotel, they hadn’t misplaced the reservation that you made 3 months prior on an expensive long-distance phone call.

In fact, a recent survey found that almost half of mobile hotel bookers were already on the road when they made their booking! How’s that for a shifting demographic?
