Washington, DC, June 13, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- HourlySpaces is a fast-growing business that is quickly on the path to becoming a top competitor in the short-term rental industry. The company is the first to provide “all hourly space rentals under one roof.”
HourlySpaces.com, formerly operating as HourlyRoomRental.com, is rapidly emerging; it is currently underway to become the largest hourly spaces on demand provider in the travel and business lodging industry. The fast growing company is making waves in the hourly space rental marketplace, aiming to lead in the short-term rental industry by providing consumers with the most extensive selection of hourly rentals around the world. The idea was conceptualized in 2014. In 2015, they raised over $100,000 for their SEED funding.
HourlySpaces seeks to offer consumers more than a mere listing of offices and rooms rented by the hour. The company plans to list everything from apartments and vacant real estate to wedding venues and theaters. The company’s new website, www.HourlySpaces.com, was launched in 2016 and already has several listings available in many major cities such as Washington, DC, New York, NY, Portland, Chicago, San Francisco, Paris, Rome, Canada, etc with tens of thousands of visitors from more than 100 countries.
The concept behind HourlySpaces is to provide consumers with an easy, affordable way to rent space without having to pay for an entire day, month, or getting locked into yearly leases of office space. The company’s motto: “Why pay for a day when you can pay for an hour,” was derived from the founder, Joe Bhaktiar, a young Mechanical Engineer who left his field to pursue his love for travel along with his wife, Kristi, a lifelong nurse. Booking a hotel for a day when it is only needed for a few hours is troublesome – and expensive. “Between looking for hotels, calling them and finalizing a room, an hour had passed, and we still ended up paying for the whole day because that’s just how hotels work. We felt robbed,” Joe states while reminiscing about a time when his family visited him in New York City. “Another day I found myself wanting to take a quick nap during my lunch break because I had a headache but nowhere to go. Multiple instances like this helped us to conceptualize and create HourlySpaces.com,” he added.
Unlike other websites that single out only business professionals seeking to rent hourly office space, HourlySpaces aims to target everyone, travelers, businesses and even students for their study rooms. Business professionals can easily search for an hourly conference room, meeting spaces, or virtual office to rent for a few hours and vacationers can locate thousands of affordable properties to rent by the hour, day, or week. HourlySpaces offers many hourly rental options for office spaces, conference rooms, virtual office, event spaces, and meeting spaces throughout Washington, DC and NYC while also having short-term room rentals within apartment and hotel options. Many of the listings currently on the site offer rates as low as $15 per hour. Think of it as retail vs. wholesale. 1 day has 24 hours and is considered "bulk booking" when on HourlySpaces, whereas in traditional booking systems 1 week barely qualifies for a bulk discount.
In a world where virtual office owners and the freelance economy is booming, and reports that of over 40-percent of the United States workforce is made up of virtual workers, the idea of "bulk booking" is an innovative concept. Virtual offices in Washington, DC and NYC offer entrepreneurs the possibility of having a prestigious address and a location that offers conference rooms, meeting and office space without having to sign yearly leases at an overpriced rate. Joe states that the company is currently in negotiations with several branded hotels to make their rooms available to customers for an hourly space rental.
However, that is not all that HourlySpaces has to offer. In addition to the ability to search and book short-term rooms, apartments, and offices, the consumers can also list their own spaces to earn a side income. On average, people who list their property on the website earn an extra $300 per week. Hosts have the ability to set their own rates based off of location, condition, peak travel seasons, and many other factors.
