A new startup wants to remove the stigma surrounding renting a hotel room for a couple of hours in the middle of the day.
HotelsByDay, which launched Tuesday, is a new app that seeks to serve travelers and city dwellers looking for downtime or a place to change clothes in the middle of the day. The app lets users book a room for a block of hours between early checkouts and late check-ins at hotels. It’s currently live in Washington, D.C., New York, Chicago, Philadelphia with hopes of expanding to Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco and Miami soon, according to Mashable.
