Recharge Allows Users to Book Accommodations by the Minute

Recharge is a luxury hotel app that allows users to snag last-minute deals by the minute. Following an Uber-inspired business model, the platform helps users access unoccupied spaces in top hotels, while unlocking discounts on rooms that would otherwise fall under a larger price bracket.

Catering to San Francisco, and most recently New York travelers seeking four or five star accommodations, Recharge works by "optimising hotel vacancies, and is a hit with business people wanting to work remotely."

The luxury hotel app is ideal for single travelers and helps those on the go access premium suites at an accessible price point. Additionally, those looking to relax in between meetings or flights can access suites for short time periods that correlate with their schedule, versus having to secure a per-night room reservation.
