If you travel a lot you surely have had the displeasure of booking a hotel room for a full-nights stay when you’re only going to be there for a few short hours. Sometimes your flight comes in at midnight, but checkout is 8am, shouldn’t you have the opportunity to buy a room via a pack of hours instead of a full day? At the same time shouldn’t that opportunity be available in the best-of-the-best hotels and not just the sleezy domiciles we often associate with hourly check-out times? ByHours.com thinks so.
At ByHours.com you only pay for the hours you spend at the hotel. No more, no less. They don’t focus on low pricing like Priceline or Hotels.com, rather it’s about fair pricing. The first online reservations platform that lets you decide what time you check-in and check-out of a hotel with packs of 3 up-to 48 hours. ByHours.com answers the question, why pay for 24 hours of hotel services if you’re just going to spend 6 hours sleeping and that’s it?
