Best of hotel-coworking
The possibility of telecommuting is stimulating the hospitality sector. With the proliferation of hotel coworking concepts like Soho Works or Working From_ by The Hoxton, hotels are becoming true places of work and networking. « Hotel Office », « Daycation, » and « Work from Hotel » packages are multiplying all over the world, reinventing hospitality through a social lens.
The key to these stays? An exclusive 360° offering with high-tech spaces and tools, workshops, conferences, and carefully pre-established host networks. All of this is set against exceptional settings designed by renowned architects. Here’s a selection of seven hotel-coworking spaces where you can telecommute and network without hesitation.
Nestled in one of Perth's last Art Deco gems in Boorloo, Lawson Flats is the new member's club that's set to make waves in Australia. Spread across three floors: private rooms, a library, sauna, art gallery, pool, yoga studio, meeting rooms, and even a karaoke room... It's a hybrid ecosystem that encourages networking and nurtures creative thinking. A unique place where a day of work can quickly resemble a week of vacation.
The Hoxton Poblenou
While in Brussels, London, and Chicago, The Hoxton has recently introduced its workingfrom_ membership formula, the hotel group is focusing on "working-friendly" spaces to attract visitors. These spaces offer a well-stocked pantry with teas, coffees, and snacks, a 10-person meeting room, and even a basement dedicated to larger events. In Barcelona, The Hoxton Poblenou provides conducive spaces for telecommuting and networking in an elegant setting, far from the communal living experience. This design is inspired by the work of Ricardo Bofill.
Buckle Street Studios by Locke
With locations in Munich, London, Dublin, Berlin, Manchester, and Edinburgh, featuring interiors designed by Holloway Li, Grzywinski+Pons, and Atelier Ochre, Locke is undeniably the trendsetting hotel network of recent years. Buckle Street Studios, one of the most distinctive, aspires to be more than just a London hotel: it's a transitional space where you feel right at home. This includes coworking spaces, meeting rooms, and an intimate, cutting-edge café and boutique.
Ace Hotel Sydney
Located in the historic brickworks Tyne House in Surry Hills, Ace Hotel Sydney marks the first Southern Hemisphere location for the American hotel group. In addition to the 257 stylishly designed rooms and suites by Flack Studio, there are private workspaces to rent, including Brick, Clay, and Tyne, three finely equipped spaces designed for meetings and interactions.
Soho Works White City
A true empire of hotel-coworking, Soho House continues to push the concept of the member's club with Soho Works, an exclusive membership for creative workspaces for businesses and individuals. Located in the former BBC headquarters in West London, Soho Works White City is one of three locations offering this service today. The program includes 3,000 square meters dedicated to telecommuting and a 60s Mad Men-inspired decor.
Am Hof 8
On the historic Am Hof square in Vienna, the very first Private Members Club has opened its doors. Housed in a Renaissance-style building dating back to 1508, AM HOF 8 was designed as an intimate and discreet "social retreat." Unlike the Ace Hotel's approximately 200 rooms, here, there are only five suites, as desirable as they are comfortable (designed by Theresa Obermoser). They complement the meeting spaces: restaurants, bars, meeting rooms, rooftop terrace, and a nightclub under the medieval vaults.
