Hotels are losing more and more business to Airbnb, and are having to come up with new ways to compete. Besides the fact that Airbnb’s are often cheaper than most traditional hotels, some travelers prefer the added amenities of Airbnb’s better since they provide more value added perks such as kitchens etc.
With this, hotels are trying to steal business back away from Airbnb, especially for those guests who have extended stays such as a week or longer.
With the Stowaway service at the Standard, some popular perks are a custom mini bar, meaning you can let them know your favorite alcohol and snacks and they’ll have it stocked for you.
Additionally, they’re adding a Tesla car service for guests, which is something you’d be hard pressed to find with any Airbnb.
What are your thoughts on lodging accommodations when you travel? Do you still prefer to stay in hotels or do you side more with Airbnb these days.
