Yannis Moati is CEO & Founder of Hotels By Day, the premier provider of day-stay hotel spaces in the United States.
Yannis has nearly two decades of experience in travel, from guiding tours in Europe at a young age, to co-founding an exotic travel agency, to directing a New York-based global tour operator company. Having witnessed first-hand the important customer behavioral shifts of the ‘on-demand’ economy, Yannis realized that something could be done in boosting hotel revenues by selling un-committed inventory for the day.
And that’s the vision behind Hotels by Day – an innovative solution for both guests and hotels to seamlessly process & monetize flexible room inventory. Priced at a discount from a typical overnight, rooms booked on HotelsByDay give their guests flexibility, comfort, and a space of their own—by day, with all the amenities of a hotel, so their guests can relax, recharge & be productive anywhere.
