With so many people working remotely now, business opportunities for hotels are shifting to suit the demand of working ciientele. Working vacations are becoming more common during COVID and we’ve even heard stories about renters giving up their apartments and staying in hotels for weeks at a time to explore places they otherwise would never be able to visit for an extended period of time.
Guests are opting for longer stays now because of the flexibility that remote work offers to the guests. Hotels are offering Extended Stay Packages consisting of discounted rates to ensure customer satisfaction. With these longer stays, hotels are now expecting more work to take place in the hotels and have started to implement changes to make sure guests can productively get work done while in the comfort of their hotel. Some hotels are even offering Work From Hotel Packages that can include bonus amenities such as faster WiFi and a better view for your remote office. Definitely something to check out while we still have the flexibility to work from our computers!
Another feature that many hotels are focusing on are their outdoor spaces. Creating spaces where guests can safely be outside and work from their computers can set a hotel apart from their competitors. By adding more dining and sitting areas outside for working and relaxing, guests can feel more comfortable spending work and leisure time at the hotel and will continue to come back and visit.
As the world starts to open back up, guests will appreciate the changes that are being made to the hotel industry. And if you don’t want to take the time to check out deals on your own, both Kayak.com and Expedia.com can help with extended or longer stays.
