It seems like there's a website and/or app for anything these days, especially when it comes to travel. Here's one we actually are intrigued by and eager to see how it catches on. "ResortPass," a new program and booking platform created by Amanda Szabo, lets the user book "daycations" at over 200 hotels throughout 70 different cities.
So, if you're bored at home or don't want to splurge on an expensive hotel room, you can book times at participating hotels to use their amenities, such as pools, fitness centers, spas and other amenities. All without having to actually book a room and stay at the hotel.
So far ResortPass has been pretty successful in getting users signed up and using the service. More importantly, in our opinion, there is a huge upside and opportunity for hoteliers to create a new revenue stream with this service or one like it. As ResortPass touts, they create a new revenue stream when hotels traditionally have slow periods, such as mid-week and during the off tourist season.
