Accor has announced it will offer its hotel rooms for remote workers to make daytime bookings across 250 UK hotels and a further 70 hotels across Northern Europe, with further expansion of the scheme in Europe expected in the coming weeks.
The Hotel Office service allows users to reserve a room for nine hours, with check-in from 9am and check-out at 6pm. Customers can book for a single day or a five-day package, and reservations can be cancelled free of charge up to 2pm on the scheduled day of arrival.
Subject to availability, guests will also have access to the hotel’s onsite bars, restaurants and wellbeing rooms, in addition to the 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.”
