Instead Of Working From Home, Move Your Office To These Hotels – Forbes

With so many people working from home, often both partners of a couple, and children also home with camps closed, the desire for at least one of the adults to work from somewhere else is tangible. Couple that with available space in hotels as travelers choose to vacation during the COVID-19 pandemic in wide open spaces away from cities and the result is the option to rent an office equipped hotel room by the day as a work environment. More hotels around the country are starting to offer this with the other hotel facilities available for taking pre/post Zoom call breaks.

Wythe Hotel  This boutique hotel in Brooklyn, New York partnered with workplace provider Industrious to convert several of the hotel’s loft style rooms into personal work spaces for individuals up to four people. Included are high-speed Wi-Fi, private outdoor space, unlimited digital access to The New York Times, printing services, a smart TV and complimentary coffee and pastry services.

Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi This boutique hotel in downtown Santa Fe is offering guest rooms, the Library or Living Room from 7 AM to 5 PM daily with free WiFi, Apple TV, a Polycom phone and in room dining and beverage service. But for total seclusion, the best room in which to set up your computer would be the Wine Cellar as long as it’s not too much of a temptation and the WiFi signal stays strong.

Hotel Figueroa in downtown Los Angeles recently introduced the program Work Perks at the Fig in which individuals can rent a 353 square foot Classic Suite with an executive writing desk, high-speed Wi-Fi, complimentary water and coffee, unlimited copy and black & white printer access, in-room iPad, and LG Smart TVs. The hours are between 9 AM and 5 PM and access to the pool deck and fitness room, a curated menu from local restaurants for in room dining and complimentary parking are also included. And if guests really don’t want to go home, an overnight stay can be tacked on for $20 additional.

Rosewood Miramar Beach The Rosewood Remote Office package at this beachfront resort in Montecito, California transforms a suite into a full fledged office with monitor, printer, wireless keyboard, mouse and other essential office supplies. Guests are also free to use the other hotel facilities such as the beach, the glamorous pool and the hotel dining areas. Available Sunday through Thursday until September 30th.

Hotel Zetta  This cutting edge, high tech hotel in San Francisco’s SoMa neighborhood offers three options for day rentals.  Zetta Zen Workplaces feature a spacious John Boos workstation, complimentary premium Wi-Fi, a Samsung 46” Smart TV, Illy espresso coffee machine, Amazon Alexa voice assistant powered by Volara, two complimentary waters and sanitizing wipes. Those who want to combine work and workout can take up residence in a Zetta Zen Workout Room which features additional wellness-focused amenities such as an in-room Peloton Bike, yoga mat and Muse meditation headset. For guests who might play more than they work, the Zetta Zen Work & Play Suite offers an Atari Pong gaming table, Nintendo Switch, and Oculus Go VR headset.

The Willard Intercontinental Washington D.C. This historic hotel a few blocks from the White House invites guests in from 7 AM to 7 PM to use their guest rooms along with free WiFi, parking and hotel amenities such as the fitness center. There’s also a $20 food and beverage credit at the all day restaurant Le Café and the opportunity to run into various government power players.

AKA Central Park The sleek, contemporary suites of the AKA group of long stay accommodations first opened to rent as offices during the day (for a week or more) at this midtown Manhattan location but has since expanded to more of the U.S. locations: two others in New York (Times Square and Sutton Place), two in Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and Beverly Hills. High speed WiFi, a printer and scanner are provided.

And for those in a small office who would like to gather and do it in a socially distanced, pastoral setting, Cedar Lakes Estate in New York’s Hudson Valley is starting a program called Executive Stay on weekdays next month through March. The 18 accommodations are all in private cottages, there are outdoor and indoor separate work spaces along with high speed, fiber optic WiFi and business services. Plus, fishing, canoeing, ziplining, hiking and a host of other activities when it’s time to take a break.
