Australian-based short-term workspaces marketplace, Spacenow, has launched Isolated Hotel Workspaces, a new category to its platform that allows individual workers and organisations across Australia to rent out COVID-Safe flexible and modular commercial spaces for a wide range of commercial space needs.

According to Spacenow, a total of over 50 hotels across Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane have signed up with it, listing 200-plus rooms on the platform which can be rented out by individual workers and organisations needing and wanting to work from COVID-Safe workspaces - with hire options from one hour or a day to a full week.

Spacenow says it has made it affordable for people to find appropriate workspaces across Australian cities and suburbs, with rates starting at $79/day and $500/week,

The hotels cover both large groups such as Marriott, Accor, TFE and Intercontinental Hotels Group, as well as independent hotels, and include the Ovolo 1888 and PierOne in Sydney, View Brisbane and Punthill in Brisbane, as well as Radisson on Flagstaff Garden and Vibe Hotel in Melbourne - with Samphire Rottnest hotel in Perth also set to launch in the next coming weeks.

Spacenow says the hotel signups comes as an increasing number of remote workers across Australia, whether they be sole traders or employees, are looking at new ways to adapt to the new remote working norm which “has driven a +550% growth for Spacenow since March 2020”.

“Many Australians have been working from home since last March. That’s a very long time and for most people this is starting to take a toll on their mental and physical health,” says Daniel Gunning, co-founder and CEO of Spacenow.

“Working with children, not leaving the house, working with workstations that are not adapted, not being able to meet with colleagues on strategic projects: those are all factors that are pushing Australians to look at new remote working options closer to their homes and families.

“A growing number of organisations are also realising that it’s not worth keeping or investing in expensive, long-term leases. Some of our customers have even gone completely office free and are now using Spacenow for all of their commercial space needs, from hotel rooms for their workers or small team meetings, to boardrooms and creative spaces.”
