A popular hotel in downtown Vancouver is offering patrons a new way to work remotely.

Hotel Belmont, located on 654 Nelson Street, has extended its business for daytime rentals, or rather “work-from-hotel.”

The hotel is offering special rates that are designed for 12-hour use during the work day. Customers are also offered flexible check-in times and discounted daytime parking.

“Whatever you may need to help get you through your busy work week, we’ll have you covered,” Hotel Belmont says on its social media.

Jeff Leung, General Manager of Hotel Belmont, tells Daily Hive that as a parent, he understands how challenging it can be to work from home.

“I know very well that being a parent of 3 kids, it can be very difficult to stay focused working from home,” he explains. “On top of that, having an uninterrupted space to conduct the various zoom calls that have also become a norm these days.”

Patrons will have access to office services and supplies, high-speed cable or WiFi internet access, complimentary in-room coffee and tea, and meeting rooms for up to six people.

A $10 credit is also issued for use at The Living Room, the hotel’s vibrant eatery with an enticing menu.

Leung says that it offers visitors a “break” from home, calling the move a “win-win for everyone.”

The hotel says that approximately 10% of its rooms are being used for work-from-hotel at the moment, although the number could change on demand. Pricing ranges anywhere from $95 to $125 based on the size of the space and other amenities. Long-term rental discounts are also available.

“Our bread and butter is still delivering top notch overnight accommodation and this will always be our core focus,” says Leung.
