Ever needed a hotel room just a few hours during the day? Whether it’s killing time between layovers or getting out of business suits and getting into cocktail attires; there never seems to be the perfect place to solve these problems that business travelers often face.
HotelsByDay is here for the rescue. A website devoted to rent out hotel rooms for day-users.
Although still in beta form, HotelsByDay makes it easy to book (and even cancel) the city, time and date of a hotel. Enjoy your few hours of calm before the storm, then pay t check-out either by cash or credit card.
The startup is based on a booking service that blocks out hours at a time, at a price that is much less expensive than normal room rates. You can choose to start from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. if you have a break between meetings, or from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. if you needed a place to change clothes from day to night time activities. Most users choose to purchase 4-6 hours.
The website is user-friendly and has a modern feel with up-to-date filters by location, price and amenities.
Hotels are loving partnerships with HotelsByDay as well since travelers may extend their day stays to booking for the night. Essentially, the startup actually drives more business to hotels.
