If you ever find yourself needing a room with a bed for just a couple of hours and want to make the arrangements as discreetly as possible, then DayGuest.com is the service for you.
The website allows users to search for and book luxury hotel rooms for just as long as they need. Let’s say you need a room during that extended lunch break or evening “meeting.” Simply go onto the site, choose your city and pick your hours at rates that are 30-70% off.
Those worried about getting caught in the act can rest assured as you won’t always have to pay a deposit, and you don’t even have to leave your real name. Aliases are accepted. Just confirm the reservation via email or text message and show up at the designated time.
Though the site obviously appeals to philanderers, adulterers, and lovers of all kinds, CEO Phillipe Cohen anticipates that Canadian clients will include “travelers stranded on long stopovers at airports, cross border business trips, and staff sent to locations where corporations have no office.” He also thinks it’s a great service for fans from neighbouring cities to come in and refresh before a sporting event or concert.
Cohen remarks that while customers are presented with the “possibility to rest, refresh, nap or meet privately,” businesses get to generate revenue by taking advantage of rooms that are otherwise left empty.
Europe and the US have been happily taking advantage of DayGuest.com’s services, and now Torontonians, or anyone stopping into the GTA for a few hours, can reap the benefits of these discreet day-stays.
