DALLAS – Dayuse.com, a leader in online reservations for daytime hotel stays, has selected DHISCO Inc., a leading hospitality distribution company, to help power its global expansion, the companies announced during the Phocuswright travel industry conference in Los Angeles.
Dayuse.com Founder and CEO David Lebee said his company, headquartered in Paris, is the first and most advanced day-stay hotel booking platform, offering rates up to 75 percent off those for traditional night stays. The company, which currently operates in 18 countries, recently opened its North American headquarters in New York and is adding staff in Asia, Australia and Brazil in the near future.
Lebee said the partnership with DHISCO is key to the company’s focus on continued growth and adoption of new technologies to increase the speed and accuracy of “microstay” bookings, an emerging trend in the hospitality industry.
“Our goal is to provide travelers a wide range of inventory for day stays at hotels around the globe and simultaneously give hoteliers a way to capture these new reservations automatically,” he said. “This partnership with DHISCO enables us to dramatically expand our inventory by facilitating real-time seamless connections with tens of thousands of hotel partners around the world through the one-to-many DHISCO Switch.”
DHISCO CEO Toni Portmann welcomed Dayuse.com to DHISCO’s global network. In addition to opening new markets for Dayuse.com, she said the alliance offers DHISCO’s hotel partners new opportunities for maximizing revenue.
“We at DHISCO are always looking for ways to help both our supply and demand partners expand their reach and increase their sales,” she said. “Dayuse.com enables hotels to make more money by listing their rooms for short stays during the hours that as many as 50 percent of hotel rooms traditionally sit empty.”
