Traveling with kids just got a whole lot easier! It’s no secret that managing time changes and nap schedules can be a bear when it comes to family vacations, but now you can book a day use hotel to give everyone the break they need.

Hotels By Day is a booking service that is just what parents need: hotel rooms you can book for a block of hours at cheaper rates so the family can have a place to relax during a layover, nap, nurse or pump in private. So how does it work?

The service offers a variety of time frames for booking, with most options from three to twelve hours. Day use rooms are available for early morning check-in and late-afternoon, or early evening, check-out, such as 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

Because you are not booking an overnight stay, guests can check in anytime during the allocated block of time, up to the last hour. Usually, there is a two adult maximum and you’ll want to check with the hotel regarding the number of kids.

As a day use guest, most likely you’ll get whatever room that is vacant but you are able to request specific rooms on the Hotels By Day website if the hotel has the option. You’re also more than welcome to make specific requests upon check-in.

Not planning a trip away anytime soon? Hotels By Day makes your staycation a little fancier! Head to the city for a change of scenery, use the pool or dine at a hotel restaurant. If you’re a busy mama, we’d imagine this would be just the break you need.
