Hilton is tapping into the remote-work trend with the debut of WorkSpaces by Hilton, a portfoliowide work-from-hotel pilot program rolling out across the U.S. and the U.K.
Under the WorkSpaces initiative, guests can utilize a room as a remote office, with participating properties currently offering new daytime rates.

Each WorkSpace by Hilton booking is inclusive of a private, standard guestroom with a desk and chair, complimentary WiFi, food and beverage options, access to various hotel amenities and other benefits.
Example offers include daytime use of a room at the Conrad New York Downtown in Manhattan, where WorkSpace rates start at $300 per day and guests receive perks like room service delivery for breakfast and lunch as well as a 4 p.m. cocktail delivery. Another participating property is the Hilton Boston Back Bay, which offers WorkSpace rooms starting at $99 per day and featuring amenities like an in-room air purifier, wireless printer, ergonomic chair and more.
Guests can book a WorkSpaces by Hilton room by contacting participating hotels directly via phone.
Other major hospitality players have also launched their own work-from-hotel promotions.
Summer may be over, but hoteliers and other industry players are seeing leisure travel trends extending well into fall this year, buoyed in part by a pandemic-era shift toward remote work and schooling.
Due to high demand, Hyatt’s Work From Hyatt program — which offers stays starting at $139 per night — was expanded this fall to comprise nearly 60 participating hotels across North America and the Caribbean. The Work From Hyatt package, which requires minimum stays of seven nights, features standard guestroom or suite overnight accommodations, a separate workspace, daily food and beverage credits and complimentary WiFi, among other amenities.
Likewise, InterContinental Hotels Group’s Kimpton brand has launched work-from-hotel packages at a number of properties, including new day rates at the Kimpton Saint George Hotel in Toronto and a $79-per-day remote-work offer at the Kimpton Cardinal Hotel in Winston-Salem, N.C.
