Traditional offices and chained-to-desk positions are no longer as commonplace as they used to be. Workspaces are popping up left and right, catering to the growing population of remote workers (Fast Company called remote work “the new normal”). Coffee shops are doubling as temporary offices. And hotels are developing well-planned business centers for business travelers.

All around the world, hotels are designing spaces that cater to business people whose positions are transient. Whether you’re looking for the perfect hotel in Tokyo to host an entire company, or simply an ultra comfortable room to independently handle some business in New York City, there’s an unique option out there for you.
