Hyatt has launched a new long-stay offer to allow digital nomads the chance to work and stay in its properties in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Southwest Asia.
The Great Relocate package is open to members of the group’s World of Hyatt loyalty scheme and is offered on stays of 29 days or longer until the end of 2021. The deal includes a room, complimentary gym access, high-speed internet, airport or train station pickup and 25 per cent off onsite dining and laundry.
A stay using the package at the Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere in March costs from €100 a night, compared to an advance purchase rate of €117, for example.
Geneviève Materne, senior vice president, commercial services Europe, Middle East and Southwest Asia, said: "The pandemic has been a major catalyst for the increase in the 'work from anywhere' trend and we know it has accelerated significant shifts in the way we live, work and play."
"This is the perfect offer for all the digital nomads out there and for those who define luxury as not being tied to one place. We are making it more affordable than ever to take a long stay in one of our hotels, for a similar amount you would pay for the average city-center rent. We look forward to welcoming guests, whether they want to relocate on their own, bring their partner, their family or even their pet!"
The group is offering room upgrades for stays of two months and longer.
Accor has launched a global rollout of its digital room key solution, dubbed Accor Key, with the aim of providing a contactless guest experience at its properties.
