With an eye toward the future, we recommend everyone take a moment to think about the future of the hotel industry. It wasn’t too long ago that worried hoteliers decried the rise in sharing apps like Couchsurfing and AirBnB as the end of hotels are we know them. But what they failed to take into account is the fact that these services are not so much hotel competitors as they are connecting a different consumer to a previously unavailable service.
At HotelsByDay, we go one step further toward making everyone happy. Not only do we provide a new service for guests to book hotel days stays in cities across the country, but we also create a new way for hotels to increase their RevPAR without paying a cent to invest in changes to rooms, amenities, and services. Caught your attention? Supplementary additions like service from HotelsByDay are helping to create a more profitable hotel industry that offers services to guests that more closely align with their needs.
Targeting a Younger Demographic
One of the changes that is most widely recognized in today’s hotel industry is the need to cater to a younger demographic. The New York Times ran a piece discussing the adjustments that hotels are making in order to better fit the needs of younger hotel guests. One of the biggest changes across the board? Wireless internet access has become one of the essential factors that distinguishes a forward thinking hotel from one of its archaic predecessors. Another shift? The inclusion of trendy nightlife destinations in hotels like the elite rooftop pool and Tropicana Bar at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, or the live music, craft cocktails and killer views from the lavish Wall Street Inn in Manhattan.
The Digital Element
Finally and perhaps most importantly is the focus on a technologically-enhanced hotel experience. For the younger generation of travelers, everything needs to be optimized for ideal performance on a device or online. When it comes to travel, that’s no exception. With a service like HotelsByDay, that mobile and online booking are perfected for a seamless guest booking experience from choosing a hotel to checking out at the end of a day stay.
Looking For an Experience
Today’s travelers are focusing less on the importance of tangible luxury as they are on gaining a unique experience. For the sophisticated traveler, there’s no longer the same emphasis on the size of a suite, so much as the cache of an experience and what can differentiate their hotel stay from any other. HotelsByDay gives guests access to hotels for a new and unique experience, giving them the option to transform their layover from a miserable experience to a positive and productive break, or booking an afternoon spa treatment in the privacy of their hotel room.
