Accor has launched its Hotel Office concept enabling people to book their own hotel room as an alternative to home or office working.
At launch the ‘Hotel Office’ is available in 250 hotels in the UK and a further 70 hotels across Northern Europe, with further expansion of the scheme in Europe expected in the coming weeks.
Guests taking advantage of the Hotel Office service can book for a single day or select a five-day package. Guests will have access, subject to availability in participating hotels, to onsite bars, restaurants and wellbeing rooms, in addition to all in-room amenities.
James Wheatcroft, VP marketing Accor Northern Europe, said: “With millions of people adapting to new ways of working we have been inspired to support this trend by offering a unique office experience, blending the need for quiet dedicated working spaces with all the convenience and amenities of a hotel. The Hotel Office is the home office only better, it ensures people can optimise their remote working experience, offering a professional workspace with room to relax in privacy.”
Those taking advantage of the Hotel Office service can reserve their office for nine hours, with a check in from 9:00am and a check out time of 6:00pm. Bookings can be cancelled free of charge up to 2:00pm on the scheduled day of arrival, after this time the first day is charged. Those booking a Hotel Office can take advantage of food and beverage services, including adding in breakfast, a snack or lunch on the go.
