The latest Accor promotion is something I’m surprised they haven’t tried a little earlier, which is using their hotels as day rooms. Similar to the whole Deskdog theory from Brewdog.
Their e-mail reads:
“The hotel office is your home office. But better.
It turns out if you mix children and your home office, things can become… challenging. And with that lesson learnt, here comes half term.
So we’ve got the perfect solution: the hotel office.
It’s all the home comforts of the work-from-home era, but with none of the housework. Or children. Think spotless welcome and check in, clear desk, comfy chair, great coffee, intelligent lighting, room service. The hotel office is your home office. But better.
PJs, slouchies, suit? Make your own rules. Escape to your new office.”
It’s a great idea, although after trying numerous searches, but the prices are quite spiky, a day room costs £66 in Cambridge and around £50 to £100 in most London hotels. And just to show there’s a potential problem with the pricing, that same room in Cambridge on the same day in late October to stay overnight costs £61.75. I’m not sure the take-up is going to be huge here….
