'Recharge' is a new booking platform that allows consumers to book hotel rooms for minutes at a time. In recent years, there has been a major shift in kinds of hotel accommodations consumers are looking for. This platform turns the traditional hotel stay on its head by renting out luxury suites for just minutes at a time.

Recharge is an app-based platform that allows users to book hotel rooms for 67 cents per minute or $40 per hour. The service is largely designed for consumers who need a quiet place to unwind for just a short period of time. This could mean taking a shower, make some phone calls or simply grabbing a quick nap. The unique pay-per-minute model makes the service ideal for those who need a little privacy, but aren't willing to shell out the money for a longer hotel stay.

With connections with both Hyatt and Starwood Properties in San Francisco, the startup gives consumers a convenient way to relax and recharge in a luxury hotel suite.
