Let’s be honest, 2020 is the year that all boundaries between work and home disintegrated. Since we now work in our PJs while having our morning coffee and have swapped taking a tea break with colleagues for talking to the cat, it’s fair to say we’re missing the office. If you’re desperate for a change of scene but can’t afford to take time off from work right now, how about tapping into the latest travel trend, the workcation? Here, we bring you the best hotels to work from, after all, WFH (work from hotel) is the new, ahem, WFH.
