Down time is an expected consequence of modern travel, and if you’re a frequent traveler, that can mean killing hours before catching a later flight. Dayuse lets you book hotel rooms for a few hours during the day, often at prices that are a fraction of a typical overnight rate. With an inventory of more than 4,000 properties across 20 countries and more than 100 cities, it offers a quick and easy way to get clean, take a nap, hit the gym, and make good use of other hotel amenities like guest-only WIFI or the business center.
