Monday, January 12, 2009 evolves, a peer-to-peer site for arranging short-term room and apartment rentals, is expanding. The site, founded last fall, matches travellers with renters in several North American cities. Its new incarnation--dubbed, not surprisingly, Roomorama 2.0--adds a new calendar, new pricing options and a jazzier design, among other tweaks.

The latest upgrade also expands the service to Vancouver, Miami, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. (The site already covered Toronto, Boston, New York and Chicago.) The owners plan to extend it to other American and international cities, including London, in 2009.

Roomorama gives travellers access to a wider range of accommodations than many similar vacation rental sites, including long-term sublets and bedrooms in occupied apartments.
