The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in many people working from home. Cue children/partner/pets crashing the Zoom meeting for the umpteenth time, or living their best yet noisy lives within earshot. City Lodge Hotel Group has launched a solution utilising the spacious work desks present in every Courtyard Hotel, City Lodge Hotel, Town Lodge and Road Lodge.
#YourPrivateOffice by City Lodge Hotel Group is an offering that allows you to book a room to work in for several hours a day at a special rate that is inclusive of tea and coffee making facilities, secure parking, fast and reliable WiFi, air conditioning, and peace and quiet.
Desks in the rooms are set up as professional work stations, available from 8am to 3pm, for R495.00 per day. They provide a neutral space in which to work on those important projects, spreadsheets and business calls that are on your to-do list. A light lunch may be included in the offering for a modest additional fee. The City Lodge Hotel Group has stringent hygiene and sanitisation protocols at all of its properties, ensuring that they are safe to use with no risk of Covid-19 spread.
Morné Bester, general manager of operations, explains, “As working from home becomes normal practice for many people around the country, we realised there was an opportunity to maximise use of our hotel rooms while meeting the need for private, quiet work spaces. We have always catered for business travellers with our large desks, good lighting, free fast and reliable WiFi, range of plug points, comfortable chairs, air conditioning, pleasing room décor, and free tea and coffee making facilities. We’re now offering all of that to day visitors to our hotels who require a business work space at an affordable price.”
He adds, “We pay attention to our customers’ changing needs and strive to adapt our offering accordingly. The Covid-19 pandemic requires us all to demonstrate flexibility, and we want to help our guests do this, whether they need a room for the night or just for the day. Telephone or email your local City Lodge Hotel Group property to secure your private office space booking.”
