Most of our work routines have a set schedule: the ubiquitous “9-to-5.” Unfortunately, business travel interrupts that regular schedule. With early morning flights, pre-flight preparation, and uncomfortable seats, you’re likely to be more than a little exhausted when you land. And if you’re giving a high-stakes presentation, that’s the last thing you want.

For leisure travelers and families, affordable early-bird flights tend to be more appealing, but you land at your destination without the energy to make the most of your vacation.

For both scenarios, Hotels By Day offers the perfect solution. Hotels By Day is the first smartphone app to enable instant booking for an intra-day stay at top hotels around the country. So while the standard check-in for an overnight stay might keep you roaming until 4pm, Hotels By Day lets you make the most of your entire day.

Hotels By Day answers the need for easy-to-find, short-term hotel stays that don’t carry the full rates of longer-term stays. For travelers, Hotels By Day offers convenient well-located spaces in the city, with access to hotel amenities like business centers, fitness rooms, and of course, their guest rooms for resting. If a guest decides to extend their stay, they can simple reserve a room at the property for the evening, so there’s no interruption to the stay.

The innovative booking solution also provides an additional revenue stream for hotels, allowing them to leverage existing inventory that would otherwise remain unoccupied throughout the day. Hotels By Day co-founder Yannis Moati explains the model, “We don’t sell nights, so the conversion is actually [booking] commission free. We’re the only sharing economy tool that drives business back to hotels.”

In doing so, Hotels By Day helps hotels to help their traveling guests. With the constant schedule changes of the modern traveler, Hotels By Day provides a simple solution that makes daytime hotel reservations a few iPhone taps away.

This is good news for hotels that have been hamstrung through inefficient practices that left viable rooms unoccupied. The rise of app culture has given travelers and hotels, a new way to utilize of the countless vacant rooms during the daytime block.

The last thing a traveler wants to do on 3 hours of sleep, coming off a cramped flight, is to go through the hassle of calling a hotel and booking a room. Hotels By Day takes the effort out of the equation with a simple streamlined process that’s perfect for an exhausted traveler. The app, free of charge on the iOS or Android store, uses geolocation, much like any standard maps app, to find hotels closest to your location and allows you to book a room in advance.

During your stay, take the opportunity to freshen up before a big event, run through some changes on a presentation, take a shower, or simply hit the hay and get some sleep before you head off. Don’t let an early-bird flight leave you too tired to make the most of your vacation or business trip. Try out Hotels By Day and give yourself a better travel experience!

Founder at HotelsByDay
Yannis has a rich background of 15 years in travel, from guiding tours in Europe at a young age, to co-founding an exotic travel agency, and then directing a New York-based global tour operator company. Throughout his professional life, for both his clients and personal travels, Yannis had to always pull strings to get a more personalized hotel check-in or check-out times. Frustration turned to illumination, witnessing first-hand the important customer behavioral shifts of the ‘on-demand’ economy: something could be done in boosting hotel revenues by selling uncommitted inventory by day.
