You can find your Market Manager's email on your HotelTonight extranet.
In Cloudbeds PMS Settings (gear icon) page,
- Go to Channels under Channel Distribution
- If you have correctly completed the steps above, HotelTonight will be displayed on your channels list as Ready for mapping. Click on this button to proceed.
Make sure to have 3+ images uploaded on the HotelTonight extranet, otherwise, rates and availability will not be updated on HotelTonight. Verify images before finishing setup.
Photo upload must be done on the HotelTonight side and cannot be done in our system.
- Click to Enable Channel
- Login with your HotelTonight credentials
- Map the room types created in Cloudbeds with their corresponding rooms in HotelTonight. A drop-down menu will display all the existing rooms in the channel's extranet.

For detailed information about the mapping process please check this article: Distribution Channel Mapping Guidelines
- Rate Plan Mapping: Use this page to configure the rate plan(s) you want to sync between this system and HotelTonight. You must map at least one rate plan per Channel Accommodation Type to ensure proper rate sync.
You can create multiple rate plans for each room type and have those sync to HotelTonight. Click here to check further information.
- Add Base Rate Adjustment for each room type, if needed. Click Next when completed or if you want to skip this step.
HotelTonight Extra Settings:
- Advanced Booking Setting: choose the Maximum Days in Advance to allow bookings
- Tax Setting: Select if your base rates include taxes/VAT.
Maximum Days in Advance to Allow Bookings
This setting controls how far in advance you allow guests to book at your property. For example, if you set this value to 2 DAYS PRIOR TO DATE, guests can make a booking on HotelTonight up to 2 days before check-in date. If you select SAME DAY, the property is only bookable on HotelTonight the day of check-in. The setting will be applied to all your listings on HotelTonight.
If you prefer a time frame less than the same day, for example by 19:00 (7 PM) on the day of check-in, contact a HotelTonight representative.
Tax/VAT Inclusive or Exclusive
If the rates you are sending from our system to HotelTonight include Taxes/VAT, select INCLUDED from the drop-down menu. Otherwise, select 'NOT INCLUDED'.
Incorrect selection may lead to issues in sending rates and availability to the channel.
You have completed channel setup. Click to Finish.

If you wish to remove certain room types that are showing on HotelTonight, contact your account manager directly. This should be done first before you update the room mapping in Cloudbeds PMS.
Unmapping in Cloudbeds PMS before HotelTonight has updated their room list could result in a possible overbooking due to the fact they are still showing room listing active on their public site.
