Recharge, creator of an eponymously-named luxury hotel booking app that charges guests only for the time that they stay, announced the app’s debut in New York City as well as its expansion in San Francisco, the city where it was originally launched.

Guests can now book at 16 New York hotels, including properties such as the Pierre, W New York, the Knickerbocker, and 1 Central Park. Participating San Francisco properties include Taj Campton Place, W San Francisco, Westin SFO, and Aloft SFO.

The Recharge app lets a traveler book a stay at a hotel for the specific timeframe for which he needs a room. Room rates start at $0.66 per minute and, depending on the property, can be as much as $3 per minute. There is no minimum stay requirement, although the company said that the average guest stay is approximately two hours.

Recharge said that its time-based model will allow hotels to significantly increase occupancy levels.

“With Recharge, hotels are able to convert daily vacancy into occupancy levels that consistently reach over 100%,” the company said in a statement.
