Today, Airbnb launches their revamped Airbnb for Business, an effort that they hope will make it easier for companies to use the room rental service for business travel.

While 250 companies currently use Airbnb as a hotel alternative (about 10% of total rentals are business-related), the startup is going after more. Even if many business travelers aren't ready to ditch the perks frequent hotel stays award them, Airbnb is hoping to make gains in extended-stay business travel, as well as off-site team meetings where groups want to share a house.
