Hourly Hotels Reinvigorate Your Routine

It’s not wise to make too many assumptions in life. Thinking you know everything is a surefire way to end up doing something foolish. While this can have serious consequences at times, assumptions affect the everyday in tiny, unnoticeable ways. 

One of the biggest assumptions people make is that something must be a certain way because it has been in the past. Although betting against inertia might not be a winning gamble, settling can be a far greater loss. Some people assume that because hotels have never offered day rates been a certain way their entire lives, that’s the only way they can and should exist. Hourly hotels, however, are set to prove this line of thinking totally wrong. 

Hotels Are for More Than Just Sleep

Many people associate hotels with spending the night. It’s how they’ve traditionally been used. But what is a hotel, really? It’s a home away from home, a convenient place to relax when your schedule calls for it. For this reason, hotels are often outfitted with various amenities, such as spas, restaurants, bars, swimming pools, fitness rooms and other accommodations to make your stay so much more than just a night’s sleep. 

If the only point of a hotel were to spend the night there, then offering flexible hourly stays wouldn’t make sense. But this isn’t the world in which we live. Through the help of our innovative booking platform, more hotels are understanding that a guest’s stay isn’t just about utility but also the experience.

Get the Most Out of Your Days 

Do you wake up every morning expecting the new day to be about the same as the last one? Complementing your schedule with hourly hotel bookings helps change up the routine when you need it most. Every day is an opportunity, even the smallest advance should be considered a victory. And with enough wins, life starts feeling a lot more like a playground than a war of attrition. 

What Will You Do with Your Hours?

Booking hourly hotels is a cost-effective way to enjoy the relaxing nature of hotels and amenities without having to pay for a full night’s stay that you don’t need. After all, a lot can be accomplished in only a few hours, especially when it comes to getting some rest and relaxation. 

Make the most of your time and save money doing it. Explore hourly hotel options near you with HotelsByDay.


Great place for a short stay while waiting for a flight . Very comfortable room , with every amenity to make it a really comfortable stay .

The hotel could not find my reservation despite booking for the assured room reservation. After some delay, and providing them with confirmation of my reservation they were able to organise a room. Initial impression was not positive.

We almost did not get a room for the day despite our reservation with my credit card because the first receptionist we spoke with was very rude and quite frankly unaware that we had already reserved a room, saying check-in began at 4pm when Read More

I made a reservation for the wrong date and Hotels by day were quick and understanding making the change I needed. The room was clean and spacious. I would use this site again and highly recommend.

Initially I was skeptical about using this, but my experience was a great one! The check-in was a little long but it was only because the manager was training a new associate at the front how to check someone in with HotelsbyDay. Faciliti Read More

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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.

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.

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.
