HotelOffice: Does that remain an interesting market niche?
Berlin, Germany - 02 June 2020 - Several hotels have tried it, but who was really successful with it? Working on remote in the hotel - in short: HotelOffice - could remain an interesting market niche. More and more business travellers are choosing to work on the road in their own time rather than at a fixed workplace. Media giants such as Facebook and Twitter are already planning to make home office a permanent part of their employment contracts - and real estate developers are expecting up to 30 percent less office space needed by corporate customers.
Citadines Aparthotels wants to continue to adapt to this trend: To this end, the interior design is to be optimised for a more productive working area in the serviced apartment, among other things by improving the overall ergonomics with better working lighting, optimised room utilisation and wall structures that are suitable for video conferences or webcasts. Later this year, Citadines operator Ascott intends to increase the use of mobile technologies with the launch of a new mobile app. The app is a one-stop service that allows guests to enjoy contactless services including access to their apartments, payments, check-in and check-out. It also offers seamless room service and intelligent controls, managing loyalty points or redeeming special offers.
