Marriott’s New Plan To Have You Work From a Hotel

Marriott recently introduced a program which is rolling out across its chain, to help encourage members who are tired of working from home, to get out and work from a hotel. Marriott’s new plan to have you work from a hotel makes sense and is nothing new as many business travelers have been mixing business with pleasure for years. However the Work Anywhere With Marriott Bonvoy program is easy to book and well thought out with perks to attract those who are feeling stifled working from their kitchen table.

The new program features three ways to book a room. The Day Pass is what you’d expect, allowing you to take over a hotel room to use as an office from 6 am to 6pm. The Stay Pass allows you to book a room from 6 am on the day of check in with a late check out of 6 pm the next day. While the Play Pass is designed to allow you to bring the kids and make a working staycation out of your time away.

Each pass has some thoughtful touches included to make the time more enjoyable and productive.

Day Pass Benefits:

  • 6am check-in / 6pm check-out (12 hours inclusive) 
  • Guest room including functional desk, private bathroom and exposure to natural light
  • Enhanced connectivity with premium Wi-Fi and ample power outlets
  • Complimentary bottled water
  • Full use of on-property business facilities such as printing, fax and scanning equipment where available

  • $10 USD food and beverage voucher to be redeemed on-property at participating dining outlets* or via room service.
  • Complimentary bottle of water
  • Full use of on-property business facilities such as printing, fax and scanning equipment*
  • Unlimited access to public spaces, hotel amenities and fitness facilities if open

  • Enhanced connectivity with premium Wi-Fi and ample power outlets

We like this idea and think as working from home becomes the new normal for hundreds of millions of people, this could be a big hit. Marriott’s new plan to have you work from a hotel  instead of your house is definitely well thought out. The program is currently offered in select hotels in Atlanta, Phoenix, Dallas, New York, Toronto, London, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong. Although we understand that they are planing to extend it to properties in Europe, the Middle East and Latin America.
