As many U.S. companies continue to extend remote work, hotels pivot to meet a new demand: people working remotely who need a change of scenery. Hotels have done everything from setting up on-demand, in-room workstations to offering day rates and turning meeting spaces into coworking areas.

 

In Breckenridge and Vail, Gravity Haus encourages guests to “Work from Haus” at the properties’ StarterHaus, a tech-forward and functional co-working space. StarterHaus features fiber-fueled internet, a 10-person conference room, a phone booth, a kitchenette, a printer, open-air seating along the Blue River and insider access to special programming.

 

At Mountain Shadows Resort Scottsdale and Hotel Valley Ho, both in Scottsdale, the Come & Play All Day offer includes a day of perks at either property, including guestroom access from 9 a.m.–5 p.m., access to property pools, a $40 dining credit, an in-room movie, a waived resort fee at Mountain Shadows, complimentary parking and unlimited WiFi. The offer is available Monday through Wednesday until Sept. 30.

 

Washington School House in Park City, Utah, will create in-room workstations in its 12 rooms and suites. The workstation will include a printer, office supplies, branded notepads and more. Complimentary Milk Breaks can be ordered, including anything from cookies and milk to crunchy, savory snacks and sparkling water or coffee.

 

The day use rate at InterContinental Washington, D.C. – The Wharf begins at $239. The guestrooms offer natural lighting, large desks, complimentary high-speed internet access and flexible check-in.

 

Across the pond, The Stafford London’s Mews Suite – Day Hire offer includes a guestroom for remote working and a two-course lunch from the hotel’s The Game Bird restaurant.
