Lyric, which launched in 2014, caters its spaces - which it calls Creative Suites - to professionals seeking accommodations for between 2 and 200 days on Airbnb, HomeAway,, and other hospitality marketplaces.

It partners with local landlords and businesses (including 20 of the National Multifamily Housing Council’s top 50 developers) to build out properties and curate art, music, and coffee programs, and it facilitates site management through a dashboard and backend that secures each location, manages revenue, handles guest registration, and automates background checks and digital access.
