Book hotels at a discount for the day with dayuse

Whenever I go on vacations I like to take flights that leave in the evening so I can enjoy every final minute where I am.

That’s great, except most hotels require you to check out by 11 (or 1pm if you’re lucky), and then you have to stow your bags and hit the town without a home base. Sometimes that’s not a big deal, other times you want to go snorkeling on that last day or go on a hike where you’re really going to need a shower before you hop on that plane next to some strangers. Then, you either need new plans, or a spot to crash for a few hours. Enter, Dayuse.

Just like it sounds, Dayuse is a site that allows you to book a hotel room to use for the day. The site (and app) works with 4,000 different hotels across 20 different countries. With it, you can book a hotel stay for the day rather than evening, and take advantage of all the hotel’s amenities when you do.

For instance, you could book a day at a 5-star hotel and enjoy the spa and pool all day, or book a suite to handle a few business meetings while you travel without inviting potential clients over to the hotel room you’re actually staying in (or your home, if you work from there). Or yes, because someone is going to go there, you could use this to book a last-minute stay for your torrid affair.

Days rooms are often 75% cheaper than what the cost would be to stay in the same room in the evening - and you can check in during the morning hours, while most hotels don’t allow overnight guests to check in before the afternoon. It’s like HotelTonight, in that you’re taking advantage of unused hotel rooms, but for the daytime.

The hours they’re available vary from hotel to hotel. In some cases you can get a room from 9am-6pm, others you’ll have to be out by earlier in the afternoon (when all those overnight guests are likely to check in). However, if you need a temporary home base, or a spot to just grab a quick nap or a shower before your flight, it can be a lifesaver.
