Coworking spaces have exploded over the past few years in Downtown Toronto, but COVID-19 has changed how everyone thinks about where we work. Let’s talk about why using a Hotel is the way to go.

Hotel Coworking Spaces offer a unique and private experience to traditional coworking.

In many coworking spaces, the hot desk option means you’re working at a desk or table in a larger area – similar to an open-concept office. With the new regulations in Toronto, that means you’re wearing a mask all day. Plus, you’re sharing facilities with a load of other people!

How do hotel coworking spaces work?

There are two options for hotel coworking spaces:
Solo work spaces
  • Day use of hotel rooms
  • Come and go freely during work hours (6am to 5pm)
  • Free wifi and local calls included
Team work spaces
  • Hotel meeting & event rooms set up with seating for your specific team size
  • Come and go freely during work hours (6am to 5pm)
  • Free wifi and local calls included

What are the pros of Hotel Coworking?

  1. Strict health & wellbeing protocols
    Hotels across Toronto have been implementing strict standards for cleaning in response to COVID-19. Hotel rooms are being disinfected with UV-C wands and extra attention is being paid to high-touch items. You can work in greater comfort knowing that your work space has been thoroughly cleaned.
  2. Privacy
    When was the last time you were in a workspace where you had your own bathroom? Spending the day working in a hotel room means you can take a break when you need to, go for a walk, or even take a shower if you want to. Plus, it’s much quieter than being at home – especially if you have noisy neighbours.
  3. Good Location
    If you’re looking to get out of the house, there’s no better place to do it than Downtown Toronto. Hotels that offer coworking spaces are often in great central locations with access to walking paths, shopping, and great food. Why not pick up some takeout on your way home from the office?

What are the cons of hotel coworking?

  1. Cost
    Hotel coworking can be a bit more expensive than getting a hot desk at an office coworking space – but you get the privacy that just doesn’t come with an open concept office space
  2. Which space is your space?
    If you get a consecutive-day rate, you’ll have the same room every day you’re at the hotel. But that may not be the case if you’re doing one of the punch pass rates.
  3. Day hours only
    Hotels are usually only offering work spaces during work hours (typically 6am to 5pm) so if you’re a night owl, you’d have to stay the night to get some work done.
