Working remotely doesn’t have to mean being stuck at your kitchen table while enduring the distractions and interruptions of daily life. Hotels have gotten creative in offering “work-from-hotel” packages, creating spaces where you can boost productivity while enjoying a change of scenery.
The World of Hyatt and Marriott Bonvoy properties have some sweet deals among their work-from-hotel offers. Not to be outdone, Hilton Honors recently rolled out its new WorkSpaces by Hilton program, offering guests the comfort of a hotel room with an array of remote office perks and the promise of Hilton Honors points.
It's a welcome addition to the growing list of hotels you can work from for a day. Here's what you need to know about Hilton's program.
What you need to know
Availability and inclusions
WorkSpaces by Hilton are available across the U.S., Canada (except in Quebec) and the U.K. These remote office packages come with a quiet work room and conveniences like free wireless internet, an ergonomic chair, coffee and even cocktail delivery. Guests can also use hotel facilities like the gym, swimming pool, spa and lounge areas, conditional on any health-related restrictions that may be in place.
Think of it as a swanky office building with lots of amenities.
Phone bookings only
To book these packages, you must call the hotel directly. WorkSpaces by Hilton charges a “day rate,” so these are not overnight packages like the ones offered in Work from Hyatt and Marriott’s Work from Anywhere offerings.
How points work
A day booked through this package counts as a night as well as a stay; this means you'll simultaneously earn Hilton points and make progress toward Hilton Honors elite status. Not only will you get a distraction-free workspace, but you will also earn both points toward free nights and a "stay credit."
Continue the progress you've made toward earning status by booking these day rates and you may enjoy perks for even longer — Hilton has extended elite status for many Honors members through early 2022.
If you book a WorkSpaces by Hilton package at a property that normally offers guests free breakfast or a happy hour, the hotel may or may not extend those perks to you — just be sure to ask when making a reservation.
Earn a points bonus
Book a WorkSpaces by Hilton package by March 31, 2021, to get a one-time bonus of 10,000 points after your first stay at participating properties. If you have Hilton Honors elite status, you’re also eligible for space-available room upgrades, club lounge access and premium, high-speed wireless Internet.
