Who says you cannot enjoy both worlds? To begin, you can download such an emulator app made by too top dogs in the space.
A. Nox App . OR

Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.

App Reviews

  • Horrible customer service!!

    By shawvols
    I tried to book a room 2.5 hours away from home for the same night, but received an error saying that the deal was gone. I checked with my credit card company, and a $167 pending payment was showing from Hotwire. I called Hotwire to find out if I had a reservation, and was told me that I didn’t. I talked to 3 people in hopes that they could assist me in getting a room for the night. They kept telling me that they didn’t have a room similar to the room I tried to book. I requested that they release my pending charges, and was told it could take up to 24 hours. At this point, I had been on the phone with Hotwire for over an hour, and it was too late to make the trip. After insisting to talk to a supervisor, I finally got someone to help me resolve the pending charges. Hotwire never apologized, and did nothing to make the situation right.
  • Won’t even switch hotels when you’re in danger

    By Lil Wonder
    Last year I used Hotwire and I got booked at a Hotel that I was previously booked at through Hotwire in another year and which I felt very unsafe. When I called to see if I could switch hotels and explained to them that the previous year I had an incident happened to me where I was assaulted at that hotel, they refused to change me into another hotel and told me that all bookings were final. It took me two hours to finally get them to at least change my Hotel as they would not give me a refund. I gave them another chance and I am really angry that I did. This year, I wanted to book a hotel and after entering in a different credit card information for whatever reason it booked a different listed hotel that I did not want to stay at. When I called to rectify The situation they would not do anything about it. I never write reviews and I really hope that no one ever uses this service ever they’re awful.
  • Terrible app for a terrible company

    By Dmpyle
    This app and the company behind it are horrible and you can save yourself a lot of pain by avoiding them both. I was trying to book a hotel for the following week and noticed that the app kept changing my dates to the current day every time I refreshed the search. Finally booked one and thought I was good to go. When I arrive at the hotel they have no idea who I am and it turns out the app booked the hotel for the same night I booked it. Then the hotel says someone checked in and used the reservation. I called Hotwire and they said since it’s a “HotRate” deal there are absolutely no refunds or changes, which apparently includes their system screwing up. So now I payed for someone else’s hotel room last week and had to get a last minute room at full price when I arrived totaling over $700 for what ended up being a 7 hour stay in the hotel. I will never use anything with the Hotwire name again
  • Not accurate description of hotel

    By vee562
    I booked a hotel and one of my main filters was a hotel with a pool. I chose the hotel but upon arrival noticed construction going on at the hotel near the pool. I then ask the receptionist and she says it will be opened the next day, FOR SURE. The next day, the new girl now working the front desk, says the pool will be opened after 5. Again I let it go because our reservations were for a few days and we would have time to hang out by the pool once it opened. I return to the hotel later that same day with my two children and husband to see posted signs saying the pool will not be opened til renovations are completed. I was very disappointed with Hotwire for not letting me know this hotels pool would be out of service and then the hotel, Comfort suites Odessa, for giving me the run around. Very inconvenient and upsetting. I work hard for my money and want what I pay for.
  • Badly run hotel riviera

    By bad hotel riviera soutj beach
    Hotel housekeeping was not consistent in cleaning the room and many days by 5 pm had to call down before the came to clean. Days that didn’t clean dishes leave coffee pods left sand in the shower etc. secondly we lost power 3 times and twice in one day and was unable to work and one night had to move to a different room. The second time we waited over one hour for the main fence guy from another property of there’s to come an couldn’t even find the power box we had to go switch it back on. After the third time this happened we asked them to in some way for spoiled food in fridge plus all the other inconveniences plus one day not be able to work and losing work I asked for some sort of compensation and for 45 minutes attempted to reach something and hotel refuse to do anything for all the issues that we clearly there responsibility
  • Beware of Scam

    By Ben0564
    I booked a hotel on Hotwire. I arrived at about 10pm only to find out that the hotel was over booked. The hotel said they would tell the third party (Hotwire) that they would approve a refund for the night and comp me a night stay at a nearby motel. Once I spoke to Hotwire, they said that they would apply a credit in my Hotwire account in addition and this credit would be good for a year. Luckily I called Hotwire back to confirm the credits. The new guy customer service rep informed me that the credit in my Hotwire account was what I was getting. After a conversation explaining that I didn’t understand it that way I asked to just credit my card. Let’s think about this, if I don’t use that credit within the years time I just lose the money! That sounds like a scam and will be in touch with the better business burea.
  • I like them! J.O.

    By Sal-bug
    I travel on business a lot and use Hotwire often especially on short notice. This app has worked for me 99% of the time. And if I ever ran into a problem with any stay a quick call to them and it was taken care of immediately no questions asked. I personally can't say a bad thing about this company. Using this app requires the ability to read between the lines and knowing the areas to hit on a great hotel. In other words if you have half a brain it's a great way to go.
  • Left me stranded

    By Jnaumow
    Booked a hot rate rental car and upon arrival the rental car company refused to honor the confirmed reservation. After calling Hotwire they kept me on hold for 30 minutes while they spoke with the car rental company. Hotwire’s response was that the company would not adjust, but Hotwire would make a special concession this time and refund my money. The agent acted like I should feel privileged that I would get a refund. No offer or willingness to find me an alternative rental with any of the handful of companies available at the airport where I was at. Needless to say I used a competitors website and was able to book a similar deal in 5 minutes and walk out with a car. Pathetic customer service and they will not see my business again.
  • Hotel ratings exaggerated

    By Traveler with taste
    I use this app a lot and although I appreciate the good deals. It seems like some of the hotels are rated with a higher star value than the actual hotel could be rated for. I have purchased some of their hot deals for a three star hotel that turned out to be barely better than a Motel 6. I Purchased a hot deal for a four-star hotel with 80% reviews to find out it’s on Sepulveda Boulevard and a best Western motel. I don’t know who is grading the stars, but in my book, there is no such thing as a four-star hotel on Sepulveda Boulevard. And of course, when you purchased the hotel, you do not know what hotel or where it is. And once you find out and see the room, there is no refund or cancellation or reducing your stay.
  • Best rates - best hotels

    By cra01004
    I’ve been using Hotwire for years - I’ve learned to book early to get the best deals and have stayed at hotels I otherwise wouldn’t afford. I have referred so many people to “my secret” to how I get my unbelievable deals and my wife brags about my ability to find 4 star hotels for 2 star prices. I now use it for my business travel and refuse to use our companies travel site because I save our company so much money. Thanks Hotwire!
