When Westin Hotels rolled out their rentable workspaces last May we were relieved to hear of a place where we could get real work done that didn't involve the endless grind of coffee beans or the perpetual smell of greasy french fries. The only bummer was that the workspaces, then called Project Hive, were available in just two hotels--The Westin Boston Waterfront and The Westin Arlington Gateway Hotel. But now that's about to change.
Westin has announced that they will roll out more of these cool workspaces around the world to more than 40 Westin hotels. They are also ditching the name Project Hive in favor of the moniker Tangent. However, the workspace concept will remain the same with each work zone featuring media:scape by Steelcase technology, video conferencing, TVs, printers, sound systems, Xbox 360s, floor to-ceiling whiteboards, wired and wireless internet for no additional fee and lots of outlets for all your gadgets.
What we like the best is the spaces can be booked by the hour at a moment's notice. Sayonara uncomfortable lobby seats, we'll be kicking it at Tangent.

How much would we love it if the lobby at Hyatt 48Lex was our office? A lot. But how much work would we actually be getting done? Debatable.
The hotel has just launched a new members-only club for non-guests looking to use the hotel as a temporary office. Remind you a little of Westin's rentable hives? We thought the same thing.
The deal is this: business professionals who sign up for membership with Lex Club (and, be warned, there's a limited number of those available) will then be granted use of the hotel's entire second floor, including the four boardrooms and, of course, Lexicon Lounge, which, you will recall, with its long communal wooden table, cozy chairs, and fancy-pants coffee machine, is certainly not the worst of lobbies to end up in.

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.
