Stressed from work and need some time to collect your thoughts and get things done? Staying at a hotel could be a great option. But can you rent a hotel for a few hours?
Can you rent a hotel for a few hours?
Generally, the answer is yes, but it all depends on the hotel. Traditionally, potential guests have to talk directly to hotel representatives to find out if this is possible. But now that the hospitality industry has started to embrace the concept of hourly booking, more and more hotels are now renting rooms by the hour. HotelsByDay.com and its iOS and Android apps let you find and book hotels that offer hourly rates easily.
HotelsByDay allows same-day last-minute bookings, early check-ins, and late check-outs to suit any schedule. Perfect for a workation or daycation, rooms booked via HotelsByDay offers private, clean, and safe spaces furnished with comfortable furniture and on-site work equipment at half the night rate.
A trusted partner of several hotels in over 1000 cities around the world, HotelsByDay offers day-use room for early morning check-in and late-afternoon check-out. A common time band on HotelsByDay lasts from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The hotel is also under contract to keep your room until one hour prior to your day room check-out time. While you cannot check out after your listed check-out time and could be penalized for doing so, you can call the front desk and inform them of your desire to check out later than the initial time you indicated. Depending on the availability of your room, you may stay a little longer by paying a small supplement, which depends on your desired check-out delay.
Pay-at-hotel bookings are charged at the hotel and can be canceled at any time prior to check-in, for any reason, at no penalty. However, service is on a first-come, first-served basis.
Meanwhile, non-refundable bookings guarantee the service and can be canceled for HotelsByDay credit if canceled 25 hours prior to check-in. However, any cancellation within 25 hours prior to check-in is final and cannot be refunded.
