Marriott joins WFH trend


Marriott International has joined the work from hotel trend with Marriott Bonvoy’s Day Pass, Stay Pass and Play Pass packages.

The company said that the package would help consumers “seeking a little inspiration to break-up the monotony”.

“Working remotely doesn’t necessarily have to mean working from home, where blurred lines between personal and professional lives can create distractions and stress,” said Stephanie Linnartz, group president, consumer operations, technology & emerging businesses, Marriott International.

“We are inviting guests to work anywhere with Marriott Bonvoy to help them be more productive and achieve a better work/life balance by reimagining our hotel rooms as local remote workspaces for our customers. By providing flexible booking options, our loyalty members and guests have a familiar alternative when choosing where to work.

“Our hotels and our internal teams are engaging and listening to our communities daily to understand how we can best meet their needs locally and globally based on the continuously evolving changes to employer, school and local mandates and regulations. We believe this continuous evolution and innovation with our corporate clients and consumers will help drive the future of Marriott’s offerings.”

A survey carried out by the group saw 42% of more than 400 business professionals indicate they would consider working from a hotel guest room to address their current realities which included: No boundaries between work and personal life, especially for families managing remote learning for kids and a desire to break up the day-to-day monotony.
