The global pandemic has had a profound impact on the way we work. After WFH became the acronym of the year, hotels have been stepping up their game to provide guests with a more luxurious, unique, and refreshing ‘WFH’ experience.
In these unprecedented times, stress and anxiety can make it difficult to feel motivated, so admiring a beautiful view while taking advantage of world-class amenities and facilities can help you to recapture your mojo! Hotels participating in the Work from Hotel initiative ensure that you have all the necessities on hand, such as high-speed Wi-Fi and business concierge. Take a look below at our favourite choices of WFH Hotel programmes for some inspiration.
