Bloomberg.comRenting rooms by the hour is not a new idea. Just ask any member of the world's oldest profession. But by the minute? Well, that's relatively new. And getting to use a luxury hotel room for just enough time to do what you need to do and get on with your business-that's a treat that's only just now available, thanks to a new app called Recharge.
Condé Nast TravelerWhen you think about booking a hotel room by the hour, luxury isn't what comes to mind-especially when you're booking last minute. But a new app is hoping to change that by allowing users to book high-end hotel rooms day-of, and by the minute.
TechCrunchRecharge, a two-year-old, San Francisco-based company whose app enables users to book a stay in a hotel for just 66 cents a minute, is opening in select New York hotels today, after testing its service over the last year in San Francisco.
