The hotel guest redefined

By offering business services for non-guests, London based Hoxton Hotels has smartly caught on to the shower’n’go business traveler. The attractively priced office space for “non-guests” is equipped with free wireless Internet, a desk, phone and a private bathroom.

The concept might especially appeal to young urban professionals who need to stay in touch with their work-lives in-between-flights. Business travelers, in recent years, have had to contend with shrinking corporate travel budgets, junk food for breakfast, boutique rooms with dark interiors and poor lighting and bathrooms with transparent glass walls. Add sneaky taxes on checkout. Mobile road warriors need a no-nonsense deal like Hoxton’s !
