Why stay in one location when you can apartment hop and see other parts of the continental United States? WhyHotel provides the flexibility of an extended stay without feeling like you live in a hotel and without the commitment of a year-long lease. The newly announced pop-up in Miami, Florida, provides guests with high-end amenities in a fantastic location.
The South Florida luxury units will be housed at AMLI Midtown Miami with porcelain flooring, state-of-the-art smart home appliances, high ceilings, a community gym and pool with cabana, and scenic views of the city.
“That’s where the product really shines. If you’re living there for three weeks, the difference between living in a 175-square-foot box or living in a 700-square-foot apartment with a living room, kitchen to cook and having a washer and dryer is something you can never offer from a traditional hotel,” said Jason Fudin, CEO and co-founder, WhyHotel. “We are aiming to fundamentally change the way people live and travel by providing flexible accommodations and homes.”
Extended stays in different locations around the world are becoming a more common option for people looking to expand their world outside of a typical office or home setting.
“As a business we believe the world is moving toward more flexibility and to be able to spread out and be yourself is a value to our customers and that is why we are in the business that we are in,” said Fudin.
Along with Miami, WhyHotel currently has two other locations in Tysons Corner, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. No international stays are in the pipeline as of now, but there are plans for additional pop-ups in the United States.

Luxury destinations around the country partnered with Bryte to introduce The Restorative Bed and enhanced sleep programming at their hotels. The revolutionary, AI-powered Restorative Bed uses real-time technology to intuitively adjust based on the individual’s needs and preferences. An embedded sensory network detects biometrics, like heart rate and breathing patterns, when a sleeper enters the first stage of sleep, triggering cooling features and lulling sleepers into deep sleep. Computer-controlled air cushions alleviate pressure points, and the technology also leads sleepers naturally out of sleep.
