As remote working becomes more and more popular, workers are warming up to the idea of “workcations”. A combination of work and vacation, workcations allow you to shake up your typical work routine, whether it’s for a single workday or a longer period of time. Hotels have caught on to the idea and have created unique work-from-hotel packages to lure in remote workers looking for a place to escape their home office.
You’ll find added perks such as early and late check-out privileges, in-room office set-ups and executive assistants in addition to the already luxe hotel amenities of outdoor pools, spas and gourmet restaurants. For a much-needed change of scenery, check your emails from one of these top hotels in the U.S. for a workcation.
*Those who choose to travel are strongly encouraged to check local government restrictions, rules, and safety measures related to COVID-19.
