The Recharge smartphone app offers drowsy users a spot for a nap in New York City luxury hotels.

Dozing on the subway can be dangerous, and napping in a bathroom stall is just uncomfortable. But with this new smartphone app, you can book a quick snooze at a luxury hotel for $3 per minute.

Recharge, a San Francisco-based app, just hit the city Monday, letting users choose among 16 hotels -- from the W New York to 1 Hotel Central Park -- to settle in for a cat nap.

The app will find the hotel closest to the user, offer both walking and driving directions, and display amenities, photos and pricing for each location. Rates for such brief stays range from 66 cents to $3 per minute, with some hotels requiring a minimum purchase, according to Recharge.

New Yorkers can start sleeping now by downloading Recharge at for iOS and Android.
