10 Work-From-Hotel Deals in Metro Manila
It gives a different meaning to WFH, indeed.
(SPOT.ph) While we love never having to face the hassle of traffic, working from home amid the ongoing community quarantine can be a struggle. You have to deal with noise coming from the neighbors (barking dogs, loud music, crowing roosters—choose your playlist), balance your time between preparing your meals and beating a deadline, and live with the fact that you don’t have an excuse not to work overtime. A change of scene can do wonders if you’re tired of being stuck at home. It’s a good thing that a number of hotels and serviced apartments in Metro Manila are now offering work-from-hotel packages for the remote worker, whether you just want to stay for a day or extend to an overnight "workation."
Here are 10 accommodations in the Metro where "WFH" takes on a different meaning:
Sheraton Hotel Manila

You can sign up for a hot desk (P25,000/month), which allows you to sit anywhere in a communal space; a dedicated desk (P39,000/month), which gives you dibs to a more private and more spacious table; or a whole office space (P35,000/month for one seat) that comes with housekeeping services and 24/7 access. One office space can occupy up to eight people, which is great if you want to bring the whole team.
