New Yorkers can now check into the office, as Brooklyn’s Wythe Hotel converts one of its floors into private workspaces as it pivots to cope with pandemic life.

It’s now offering 13 rooms as office space, available to rent daily, starting at $200. They are aimed at people living nearby that want to avoid the journey into the city.

Beds have been removed, and furniture rearranged to create space for four people to work together. On particularly arduous days, workers can order room service and enjoy the view from the private terrace. Dogs are also welcome.

And the boutique hotel’s owner, Pete Lawrence, thinks this could be a long-lasting change, telling Fast Company that changing attitudes towards remote working means more companies are looking for different kinds of space.
