Reinvigorate your routine with a flexible hotel by the hour.
Whether you’re on vacation or a business trip, hotels are traditionally seen as a place you stay when away from home. A hotel room is where you can unwind and recharge after a long day. But this is all changing. Booking a hotel for the hour or day is quickly becoming a vital way for navigating a busy schedule, catching up on sleep in a quiet environment, working from somewhere that isn’t your house.
Let Yourself Be Spontaneous, Get Out of the House
How many times have you caught yourself daydreaming while you’re supposed to be doing something else? Maybe you fantasize about sitting poolside when putting together spreadsheets. Maybe you just need some time away from the kids—like many who have been finding out the benefits of remote working at hotels first-hand. We get it. This is why HotelsByDay empowers people to be spontaneous in a whole new way.
With hourly hotel rooms and amenities, there’s no reason not to get away. Every day can be an opportunity for something extraordinary. The presence of work doesn’t have to be the death of fun and freedom. Let yourself send that email with your feet dipped in the hot tub. There’s no reason to harbor guilt over doing what feels right.
Enjoy Complete Flexibility
Life has never been more fluid. We live in an increasingly interconnected, on-demand world. Things change fast, and we often look to technology to adapt. In the case of needing a room for a few hours to accommodate your schedule or adventure, there’s no reason to pay for an overnight hotel room when you don’t need one.
Navigate Your Day with a Hotel by the Hour
Having access to hotels by the hour means you can call an audible at any time, for any reason. We might be living in a world with less travel (for the foreseeable future) but that doesn’t mean you can’t daycation in a city near you, relax poolside for an afternoon or tear through your to-do list in the cozy confines of a boutique hotel.
There are countless reasons to book hotels by the hour. That’s because there are infinite excuses to bring joy into your life. Don’t delay making yourself happy any longer.

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.
Will the hotel keep my room if I arrive later?
Yes. The hotel is under contract to keep your room until one hour prior to your day room check-out time.
What is the cancellation policy?
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.
How and when does payment take place?
For 'Pay at hotel' bookings there are no card details taken at the time of the booking non the website, and you will pay at the hotel upon check-in. However for 'non- refundable' bookings, a card is required and payment is processed at the time of the booking.
In both cases, you are asked to check-in at the hotel with a matching ID and Credit Card, matching the name on the reservation.
Should I confirm my booking with the hotel?
No - our bookings come manually and are entered into the hotel's reservation system ONLY on the day of your check-in. All you have to do is to show up with a copy of your reservation, as well as a valid ID & credit card that matches the name on your reservation.
Please note that regardless if you pre-paid for the room or not, the hotel will momentarily charge your credit card for incidentals. They will refund the hold within four business days post-stay.
