The definition of a short stay is: a  visit to a place in which you go there and stay typically in a hotel or bed and breakfast accommodation that serves as a base for exploring and sightseeing either alone or with other people.

Typically, a short stay holiday may incorporate a long weekend or it may be a specific destination to attend an event or participate in an activity. The short stays included here are different to the stay-cation because they involve hotel, B&B, or AirBnb accommodation.

Hotel short stays serve an important part of some of my longer holidays. Oftentimes, I'll arrive at the starting point of a tour a few days in advance with the intention to explore a city and its surrounding areas ahead of the tour. It also provides the ability to visit places not included in a formal tour, but those that I would like to visit nonetheless.

Hotel staff are generally very helpful with day tour bookings or with general information about the local areas, including advice about restaurants and public transport.
