With tourism way down during the COVID-19 pandemic, hotels have begun renting out rooms to local business people during the day. The offer is also favorable for those who are currently forced to work remotely and find it difficult to concentrate on their work at home. Stringent cleaning protocols have motivated guests to feel confident renting hotel rooms for their work.
The "Home-Away-From-Home Office" package includes a day-use room until 4 p.m., a breakfast bag with goodies (typically a croissant or a parfait), and a room with a workspace, and a coffee maker. They've set aside about 30 of these rooms for business workers.
