History shows us the world is always in a state of change. While blaring technological and social disruptions are obvious examples, evolution happens across the economic and cultural map.
Hotels are no exception to this rule. Many of us have this notion that hotels are a place where you sleep when you’re traveling, and that’s it. Consider, however, that this concept of hotels is solely rooted in its historic use. Thanks to the ever-shifting forces of our world, flexible day rate booking options are set to play a growing role.
Even before Coronavirus, there was an ongoing trend toward nomadic work as technology makes it more accessible. There are some stark benefits to being able to work from outside the office. You can live (and travel) anywhere. You can boost productivity and your feeling of self-accomplishment by having more flexible days and working hours. In essence, work can be fit into your schedule, instead of you rearranging your entire life for work.
Hotels are the perfect environment to make the most out of working remotely. They offer ample, free Wi-Fi, a change of scenery, and various amenities to fuel your work day. You can get a private room if you need a controlled environment to focus, while still having access to a business center or meeting rooms. Everything you need is under one roof. What’s not to love about that?
Day use hotels are all about making the most out of your time. You need something when you need it, not at some other time down the line. The ability to book hotel rooms and amenities by the day, by the hour offers a new kind of flexibility that’s representative of our modern age.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve planned a day at the spa, or if you book a room last-minute to catch a quick nap—day use hotels are a game-changer for the pragmatist. The only question you need to answer is how you’ll use all the time saved by changing how you book hotels.
Our world is dynamic. Attempting to preserve or longing for the status quo could be energy better used elsewhere. Make the most of your time. Take advantage of day use and hourly hotel time bands offered by HotelsByDay.
A day use room is a room available for early morning check-in and late-afternoon check-out. For example, a popular time band on HotelsByDay lasts from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Generally, day rooms are 'run of the house' - meaning that whatever room is vacant will be assigned to you. If you have a specific room request, we suggest you write on the 'message' section during your booking, or simply request it at check-in.
Yes. The hotel is under contract to keep your room until one hour prior to your day room check-out time.
In principle, you cannot check-out after your listed check-out time, and could be penalized for doing so. However, if you call the front desk and warn them of your desire to check-out later than the time allocated, depending on availability, you may have to pay a small supplement, depending on your desired check-out delay.
You have two options to book with HotelsByDay:
- You can "pay at the hotel" which grants you free cancellation up to the same day.
- You can also select a "non-refundable" booking. This means that you'll need to provide credit card details to book a day room. Once booked, the hotel will not allow us to change the date, cancel, or refund the stay.
