A startup based in San Francisco called Urban Bellhop aims to help Airbnb run like a professional hotel. The firm runs a check-in service for busy hosts on the lodging website. If you're too busy to meet guests at your property, Urban Bellhop will step in and welcome them in. Professional hosts will go straight to your property and help guests get settled in while welcoming them into your property.

The program works by keeping a copy of your property's key on file. After registering with Urban Bellhop, a spare key is kept securely so that they can work at a moment's notice. In addition, Urban Bellhop will call you in order to get all the relevant details of your property. In the event that you need their services, a bellhop will be assigned to you and your guests will be informed of the host change.
