Airbnb which is an online marketplace, provides hospitality service to people on a short-term basis. Airbnb rents short-term lodging spaces which includes homestays, hostel beds, apartments, etc. A few days back, Airbnb rolled out a new feature in San Francisco, where its co-founder Brian Chesky added few new features, which includes a luxury travel category which will upgrade your stay into a five-star range.

Also, the home-booking system will include Airbnb Plus and Of Beyond by Airbnb for high-end customers. Beyond by Airbnb will offer travellers custom-designed trips and it would also offer the world's finest home stay and custom experiences, to make sure the travellers get hotel-class standards on their travel.

Of Beyond by Airbnb, CEO Chesky told press, "We're combining high-end hospitality and magical experiences with one of the largest travel communities in the world."

The two new features are already there on the Airbnb site right now. You can check the 'Plus Verified' tag against the top homes in the search results.

The Airbnb Plus feature is intended to be a verification project, that would make sure to elevate the travellers experience with exceptional homes above the rest. The new feature will also provide a beautiful space and soothing effect.

Another interesting feature, the new system will include personalised design consultation and professional photography. It will also check a certain standard of quality and would be verified in person.

Presently, the Airbnb site offers three 'property types'—Shared Space, Private Room and Entire Home. It will add three new features in upcoming winters for the travellers, 'Vacation Home,' 'Unique Space,' 'B&B,' and 'Boutique.'

The cherry on the cake, Airbnb will now have home stays suited to specific occasions ranging from weddings and honeymoons to group getaways. Also, you can  filter your search through home decor styles, architectural features.
