Airbnb Plans Better-Curated Business Listings

Airbnb has set up a pilot program in San Francisco to "help hosts tailor their listings to business travelers." It's now gathering "business-ready" property information.

Among the qualifications, the property must be listed in its entirety, keys must be available at all hours on check-in day, pets and smoking are not allowed and the host must have accepted at least three bookings in the past. In addition, the host may not cancel "confirmed listings within seven days of reservation" and must respond to customers within 24 hours . . .
