Since ramping up efforts to grow its hotels listings a year ago, the company has reported a 152% increase in listings categorized as boutique hotels, bed and breakfasts and hostels.

Airbnb also claims that nearly 90% of guests who use Airbnb to book a hotel room have returned to the platform to book a hotel room or an entire home rental for a subsequent trip. Hotels booked on the platform have received an average guest rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars.

Airbnb said that the expanded hotel inventory has made it "easier for consumers to use Airbnb to find last-minute accommodations when home hosts are already booked."
