Why Expats and Remote Workers Should Consider Working From a Hotel
Most of us haven’t had a choice but to work from home in recent months due to the COVID-19 pandemic but with a lack of structure, kids pining for attention and no dedicated workspace, it’s taking its toll on some.
If you’re struggling with the work from home life, there’s another option, let us introduce you to, working from a hotel.
Why work from a hotel?
Working from a hotel means you can escape the hustle and bustle of family life at home and focus on work without distractions.
It also offers a change of scenery, which can be critical in boosting motivation and productivity.
Not only this but if you choose to work in a coworking space it gives you the opportunity to network and meet new likeminded people. Working around others can also be a great way to improve productivity.
As a bonus, a lot of hotels that offer ‘Work From Hotel’ packages include lunch and access to fitness and spa facilities meaning you can unwind and recharge after your busy working day.
Hotels also tend to have excellent hotel speeds, facilities (sockets, printing, seating, etc) and comfortability.
Hotels vs Coffeeshops
Coffeeshops are a popular working space for remote workers and expatriates but in a recent survey, hotels scored higher than coffee shops for the top three factors that are important to people when choosing a co-working space.
Coffeeshops were found to be 10 times louder than hotels and were rated much more comfortable places to work than coffee shops.
