Marriott International has announced a new programme to work anywhere with Marriott Bonvoy that meets consumers where they are in their lives – juggling working and schooling from home or seeking a little inspiration to break-up the monotony and boredom. Marriott Bonvoy’s Day Pass, Stay Pass and Play Pass were designed as flexible options, whether guests are seeking a one day stay from early morning into the evening, an extended overnight stay with early morning check in and evening checkout or a multi-day work and leisure destination getaway.
"Working remotely doesn’t necessarily have to mean working from home where blurred lines between personal and professional lives can create distractions and stress," said Neal Jones, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Marriott International, EMEA. "We are inviting guests to work anywhere with Marriott Bonvoy to help them be more productive and achieve a better work/life balance by reimagining our hotel rooms as local remote workspaces for our customers. By providing flexible booking options, our loyalty members and guests have a familiar alternative when choosing where to work."
This new initiative has been developed to help with some of the daily challenges of working from home instead of an office or work environment, such as:
• Desire to break up the day-to-day monotony.
• Not having a dedicated workspace environment and feeling claustrophobic in small flats and apartments.
• No boundary between work and personal life especially for families managing remote learning for children.
• Inability to focus and work uninterrupted on important presentations, projects and meetings.
• Competing for insufficient Wi-Fi.
"Our hotels and our internal teams are engaging and listening to our communities daily to understand how we can best meet their needs locally and globally based on the continuously evolving changes to employer, school and local mandates and regulations. We believe this continuous evolution and innovation with our corporate clients and consumers will help drive the future of Marriott’s offerings," added Jones.
