Need to Get Some Serious Work Done While Traveling? Consider Westin's New Rentable Workspaces
Are you ready to dive into the hive?
Some good news for digital nomad tribes today--you no longer have to squat in uncomfortable hotel lobby chairs to get your work done.
Westin Hotels have announced a new business center concept called Project Hive and like its name suggests, the space is designed to help you and fellow worker bees be more productive. Even better, you can rent out these spaces on LiquidSpace.com without having to be a paying hotel guest.
The 260-sq.ft. hive (some are even smaller than this) offers all that you could want from an office setting including: media:scape by Steelcase technology with video conferencing and a four-person seated workspace; Samsung TVs, floor-to-ceiling whiteboards, printers, Xbox 360s for games and DVDs and even office supplies like pens and light refreshments.
Best of all, there is both wired and wireless internet available for no extra fee. And when you need a break from all the work, you can admire a large-scale wall mural in the workspace, designed by Westin's VP of Design, Erin Hoover and her team, which is derived from the Fibonacci sequence.
Right now, Westin's Project Hive is available at the The Westin Boston Waterfront and The Westin Arlington Gateway Hotel. Up next is Westin Grand Munich with more hotels coming in 2013.
Rates will probably range from property to property but we found an hourly rate of $50 at The Hive at the Westin in Arlington which is not a bad deal for four people and comparable to other rentable workspaces in the area.
