Finding the right workspace is an ageless dilemma in New York City; especially when literally millions of people are being required to work from home. Luckily, the advent of shared co-working spaces has provided more options. Now, hotels have begun testing out creative ways to offer their unoccupied rooms as daytime office space for individuals and groups. The Holiday Inn Express Maspeth has found success early into the implementation of offering remote workspace rates.
“We found that because so many people live with roommates in NYC that a quiet, clean space to accomplish their goals during the workday is sometimes hard to come by and that was important for people once the COVID-19 pandemic shifted people from the office to working from home,” said Francisco Victoria, the manager of the Holiday Inn Express Maspeth. “We have private rooms with premium workstations and many outlets for plugging in your laptop or phone charger that are very conducive for working remotely.”
Management at the Holiday Inn Express Maspeth feels the hotel is well suited for workday use because of the free Wi-Fi, a 24-hour business center and 100% smoke-free rooms equipped with LCD televisions, a microwave, USB charging ports, a mini fridge and a Keurig coffee maker.
“We have made upgrades throughout the hotel and because of those renovations we’re able to offer this new workplace service,” Victoria said. “We’ve seen some cases where employers have paid for their workers to use our facility as well as individuals needing temporary workspace during the day for a specific project.”
Services included from unlimited printing privileges and free parking. The hotel also provideshe a “Forgot it? We’ve got it” kit to support your needs, branded notepad and pen, mask and hand sanitizer. Take advantage of our Business Center and Market Place for snacks and supplies.
“It’s certainly a quiet and private place to work where you can feel comfortable and get a lot done,” said Jared Jeffrey, a local photographer who has used rooms at the Holiday Inn Express Maspeth as an editing suite. “This is just another way in which a hotel provides hospitality.”
