Word is out that Paris is getting tough with Airbnb landlords, making it mandatory for them to register with the city before listing their units online to vacationers. Officials are also putting a 120-day limit on rentals. In response to these more restrictive regulations, platforms such as Office Riders have emerged. Office Riders is a website that rents out spaces such as lofts and townhouse mansions by the day. Customers are typically business travelers looking for temporary workspace or individuals wanting to host a party in an opulent space. Some of the more interesting spaces for rent are small ballrooms, home cinemas, and rooftop decks overlooking the Eiffel Tower.
