When virus-re­lated clo­sures bat­tered the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try, Mint House, which pro­vides high-end short-term rentals for busi­ness trav­el­ers, was in a tough spot. The three-yearold com­pany—which recorded $10.5 mil­lion in rev­enue in 2019—moved quickly to pro­vide ac­com­mo­da­tion for peo­ple dis­placed by the pan­demic, in­clud­ing col­lege stu­dents and physi­cians trav­el­ing to Covid-19 hot spots. Those changes en­abled Mint House not only to fill its ex­ist­ing rooms but also ex­pand its avail­able units by 40% in the third quar­ter. Now, with 400 short-term spa­ces in 10 cities across the United States, oc­cu­pancy is back up to more than 80% from a low of 43% in March.
