New York City, NY, September 08, 2021 –(PR.com)– The travel and hotel industries are constantly evolving to meet customer needs, especially this year as the COVID pandemic raged on. Many hotels are now reliant on technology for contactless check-ins and payments. They also have to improve their cleaning procedures to ensure safe rooms and properties. Three trends have been steadily growing this year: a la carte pricing, third workplace options, and daycation options. HotelsByDay provides insights into these trends and how they could impact guests as well as the industry.
Traditionally, hotels are known to charge guests a nightly rate for a room which also grants them access to all or most of the amenities available on the property including the gym, pool and spa. MCR Hotels, America’s fourth largest hotel operator, announced in August that they would be offering an a la carte pricing structure for everything, from the use of the pool and gym to check-outs and early/late check outs. This will allow guests to pay only for the amenities they actually use, and will result in lower nightly rates. These types of a-la-carte menu options have been available to travelers for some time. Airlines are the best example of this. They offer guests the ability to pay for their checked bags, purchase an on-board meal, or get priority seating. HotelsByDay is another website and app that allows guests to pay only for the time they use, such as for a six-hour room instead of renting it out for the entire night. The a la carte trend allows guests to personalize their trip and save money.
Another trend in the hotel industry is to provide work spaces that can be used by remote workers. These rooms will have a desk, chair and access to office equipment. There are three stages to the evolution of the workplace. These include factory setting, office setting and remote locations such as libraries, internet cafes, and home. COVID was an example of how adaptable a workplace and office can be. During the pandemic, many people continued to use hotels as their place of work. These rooms provide workers with a place to relax and recharge after spending hours in their homes trying to complete tasks.
Daycations have also been trending since the COVID pandemic has begun. Travel was limited and not all places were open so guests traveled to nearby cities and towns to get their travel fix. But with a local twist. Many hotels are emphasizing the advantages of daycations at their properties, as well as the amenities that they offer, even though vaccines are still being distributed and COVID cases continue to rise. Travelers are becoming more aware of the environmental impact of their travels, such as increased pollution and emissions from planes. Traveling long distances by plane can be more expensive than taking multiple daycations. This allows you to travel less and has a greater impact on the environment. The eco-friendly travel trends have been recognized by hotels and they are now more inclined to cater to local visitors than international tourists. The hotels have been implementing eco-friendly practices, such as washing sheets and towels only on request by guests and reducing plastic use on the property.
HotelsByDay app can be used to quickly find a local hotel that has rooms available in blocks of three to 12+ hours to fit guests’ needs instead of having to pay for the whole day. Renting a dayroom through the app gives guests complete access to all the amenities that overnight guests receive such as access to the pool, gym and even the free continental breakfast and day rates are discounted from night rates by 50% or more.HotelsByDay has thousands of hotel options to choose from in places people need them the most–like business districts, shopping hubs, by airports and near beaches.
