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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
