    Anyone ever use it? Usually, when I go to europe, I arrive early in the AM. I get no sleep on the plane (unless I eat halcyon, valium or Xanax) and upon arrival I am dead tired. I am lucky in that when I travel abroad, my first stop is at my in-laws where I get to shower and take a power nap. This sets the stage for the remainder of the trip.
    Days allows you to land in the early AM, and check into a hotel for a few hrs. to relax, or prepare for the day. The rental period runs from 10AM to 5PM. For me this covers the time up until I am allowed to check into my hotel.
    Any way, I may try this in Amsterdam in Dec. I think that a cold wet and windy Dec. day in Amsterdam right after a 9 hr. flight may suck. The best parts are that the rooms are quality, there is no need to secure the reservation with a cc, and if the room at the long term hotel is ready, there is no need to check into the day use hotel. Moreover, if I am not tired upon landing and feel up for a day outside waiting for my room, I suffer no monetary ramifications. It sounds like a good deal.
    Anyone ever try it?

    Sounds like it's tailor made for people having affairs or meeting escorts. Double check your pillows.

    Agree. No way is this a legit operation.

    How does what people may or may not use it for make it illegitimate? It doesn’t.

    Many hotels will offer daytime accommodation. However it's hard to search for that and so you have to blindly poke around. Having a searchable website is pretty cool.

    Plus, the hotels offered by this are some of the top hotels according to trip advisor. For instance, the day hotel that I chose is #11 on TA. I can check in at 10:00 and check out by 5:00. The retail price for overnight is about $400, and the day rate is about a hundo. While the site did take my name and e-mail addy, it did not require a cc # for guaranty, and I can cancel at anytime.
    Sure, some may use this for nefarious activity, but I would just like to take a shower, shave and nap before exploring the city.
    I think that these are mostly larger hotels (Radisson, Hyatt, Hilton, etc.) that do not sell out on week nights. If the rooms are available, why not try to make a buck by offering a useful product (for whatever reason)?
    If my room is ready at my overnight hotel when I arrive from the airport, I will just check in there.

    Also, that surgical cap appears to have the Ohio State logo on it. As a Michigan alumnus, I'm not surprised.

    I always just power through the day, fueled by espresso and excitement at the prospect of travelling.

    That way I figure I adjust to the time more quickly.
