Offices are not used in the evenings and on weekends, which are the moments hotels are generally the busiest. While coworking hotels coworking hotels will make better use of space.
The new concept of coworking hotels is on the rise, according to research by Horwath HTL. In coworking hotels the hotel facilities are integrated with coworking spaces, where hotel guests and locals gather to work and meet. In this way, coworking hotels offer a hybrid of working, sleeping and living, that anticipates the needs of millennials and the strong growing group of digital nomads.
In coworking hotels the hotel room is no longer the primary product. For the modern hotel guest the workplace is almost as important as the room, if not more important. Coworking hotels offer a lively, central place where the guests have diverse opportunities to work alone or together.
