After signing an agreement to acquire last-minute hotel-booking service HotelTonight, reports suggest that Airbnb has started adding hotels to its platform.

However, according to a report by Skift, this is just a testing phase for the home rental group to see what works best. Meanwhile, Airbnb has started cross-promoting hotels across HotelTonight and its own platform.

Recently, Airbnb was in the news for eliminating guest-booking fees and for implementing a host-only fee model for all the hotels that sign up from 4 June, 2019. Properties that are already part of Airbnb’s platform have the option to opt for the same.
