Short Stay Hotels Maximize Your Productivity

The pace of life is changing. You can feel it getting faster in little things like the loading speed of a webpage, or same-day delivery. Daytime hotel rooms accommodate the tempo of modern life in a unique way. 

Can you think of another venue where work, relaxation, dining, rejuvenation, and fitness coexist in one place? The ability to access various hotel amenities by the day—or even better, by the hour—is more than just convenient—it evolves hospitality into an on-demand service, industry. 

Plans in the digital age are more fluid than ever before. That’s why you need the flexibility to book hotel rooms and amenities near you for the day, by the hour, or even last minute—right from your phone. 

HotelsByDay makes it possible to use your precious time to its fullest potential by taking the mundane and turning it into something memorable. It’s time to seize the day. Here’s to a whole new way of living. 

The Perfect Short Stay Hotel Day

While there may be variations in everyone’s ideal day, While the concept of our ideal day may vary, some things remain universal: being at a hotel should be a luxury. This is a major reason why booking a hotel for day use makes sense, as well as why it’s a core value of HotelsByDay. 

We know it’s worth demanding the most out of life, which is why we created this platform, allowing people to maximize their time and have novel experiences. You should be able to get what they want, when they want it. Consider the following scenarios:

  • You have some time to kill before a business meeting downtown. You decide to get a hotel room for a few hours to review the material and catch a quick nap. As you’re taking a shower to freshen up and look presentable, you remember a key revision that needs to be made to your presentation. The meeting runs like a clock and you finalize the deal. 

  • You and your partner are going to a musical in the evening. You’ve made a dinner reservation for 6 p.m. but it’s only noon. You book a last-minute hotel room for the day and get a spa package as well. By the time six o’clock rolls around you both jokingly say you should just skip dinner and the musical and stay in. You both secretly know you weren’t really joking.

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.
