A lot of people are going for staycation, but some of us are going for “workcation”, or working remotely at a hotel.
Working from a hotel is all the rage, or at least based on the number of hotels that have rolled out packages to cater to those who are not yet back in office and are looking for an alternative to working from home.
However, getting your own hotel room can prove to be pricy (think at least $70 and up). Hence when I discovered that Hilton now has its own Work from Hotel (WFH) package that was just $26++ ($30.60 when you include the taxes and charges), I decided to head down to give it a shot.
And if you’re wondering about Furama Riverfront’s $15 WFH offer, it has shot up to $28, albeit with more dining credits than previously.
The biggest advantage that Hilton has is its convenient location along the Orchard Road stretch, and it’s just a short walk away from Orchard MRT station. However, it isn’t a completely sheltered path, so you’ll have to have an umbrella handy should it rain.
The other nice touch about Hilton’s offering is that it includes either a breakfast or lunch set, so you don’t have to worry about going hungry if you just want to stay within the hotel the entire time to complete all your work since you get to be here from 9am to 5pm.
And you won’t need to be concerned about incurring extra cost on top of your “entrance fees”, since we all know that hotel food is on the pricier side.
