The life of a hotel room has just become more hectic thanks to Dayuse, an online portal that books rooms out for day use only. They have negotiated at highly reduced rates at all sorts of hotels including luxury hotels.
There are plenty of reasons to do so that won’t raise an eyebrow at the very mention. The concept is making a comeback and turning out to be a bit of a blessing for long-haul drivers or frequent travellers longing for a nourishing snooze between flights. Convenient too for those on a long day trip who need a base for a few hours.
Business people too who may be on the hunt for a private space to conduct high level meetings or interviews or simply some quiet time to work, could find that booking a hotel room for the day may be a more cosy alternative than office space especially as they benefit from rates that are around 75 per cent less than overnight rates. It beats hanging around in coffee shops to kill time and, as no credit card is required, you can cancel at the last minute without a forfeit. You also get to use all the services that overnight residents would benefit from – free WiFi (if it’s available), take a shower, use the gym, that kind of thing.
The Paris based company has enlisted hotels, ranging from three to five star in 12 countries including London, France, Switzerland and New York who are happy to cash in on day time hours when the room would otherwise remain empty. For example:
Mercure London Bridge Hotel
