La Quinta Inns & Suites has launched a free iPhone and iPod Touch application through the iTunes App Store to help its customers find and book at any LaQuinta hotel.

According to La Quinta, the application quickly finds a La Quinta hotel near a location based on the latest GPS-mapping technology. At any time and any place in the United States, the app lets users book a room at a La Quinta hotel, change an existing reservation, get driving directions to/from the hotel, view photos and get detailed service and amenity information.
