What Are Work-From-Hotel Programs? Here’s What You Need to Know

by Cassie Sclafani, on March 17, 2021

Thanks to a steady rise in vaccinations (and spring breakers everywhere), the TSA saw its busiest days in over a year last weekend. While this is good news for the travel industry, experts warn that it could also lead to a spike in COVID-19 cases. Understandably, many companies aren’t quite ready to send employees back out on the road. And while working from home continues to be the safest option, we’re a year into this thing and we know that you might be going a little stir crazy. That’s where work-from-hotel programs come in. These programs allow guests to book rooms for a day or more to use as a remote office at special rates.

If you’re someone who needs to get out of your house for the day (or longer!) to get some productive work done with no distractions, here are a few of the different work-from-hotel programs available.

Hilton

Hilton has introduced WorkSpaces by Hilton and has rolled it out across properties in the US and UK. You can book a WorkSpaces by Hilton room and use it as a remote office for the day. To book it, call a participating hotel directly by phone and they’ll offer you a special daytime rate. Each of these bookings include a private, standard guestroom with a desk and chair, complimentary WiFi (regardless of status), and food and beverage options (if available). You cannot book a daytime stay with points, but you can earn them.
