Rest Hotels for Relaxation, Naps & Rejuvenation

The concept of rest is something that has been glossed over by many in our dynamic world. Things move so fast today, many assume that’s a necessary part of how things work. But rest is part of being human, and going without it can have some unintended, even dangerous consequences. 

Success and rest go hand in hand. Some of history’s greatest minds have agreed, including Benjamin Franklin, who once said: “He that can take rest is greater than he that can take cities.” 

Today, hourly hotel booking is making the act of resting more accessible than ever. The concept of a rest hotel, where you can get a room for a few hours to recharge in a quiet, comfortable space, will change how people restore their minds and bodies. 

Live at Your Own Pace

Everyone has their own internal clock. While much of life is dictated by having to be at a certain place at a specific time, people are realizing there can and should be more nuance to this equation. Life doesn’t need to feel like running on a hamster wheel. Rest hotels are one of the best ways for people to escape this cyclical monotony. 

Your time is, of course, valuable. You want to maximize every moment of your life But how will you achieve that if you’re not rested? Sometimes, removing stimulation and just allowing yourself to be is far more productive than trying to “do” something. Rest has been shown to provide various benefits to individuals, such as reducing stress levels, improving mental and physical health, gaining a better understanding of self, and even improving productivity levels. 

Simply put, rest shouldn’t just be seen as a luxury. It’s a way for people to find a deeper sense of purpose, while being simultaneously restorative. 

More Ways to Enjoy Hotels

The concept of a rest hotel is new for many people. We have this outdated notion that hotels are just a place you spend the night when you’re traveling or on vacation. But they have the potential to be so much more than that. 

Where do you go when you’re away from home but absolutely need a place to take a nap or unwind a bit? Going to the park or a coffee shop just isn’t going to cut it.

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.
