Office Hoteling 101: Your Guide and Best Practices

Discover the benefits of office hoteling, potential disadvantages, and six best practices to implement in your hybrid office environment.

Office hoteling allows employees to reserve spaces as needed instead of providing each person with an assigned desk. As a result, it can help reduce real estate costs for businesses and improve productivity for employees who split their time between remote and on-site work environments.
It looks like hoteling spaces are here to stay in the new normal, as many workers now prefer the option to work from home at least some of the time. And since the benefits of office hoteling extend to employees and businesses alike, it's a welcome change.
This guide will explore what office hoteling is and how it can add value to your business. We've also included tips for creating a hoteling space your employees will love.

What Is Office Hoteling?

Office hoteling, also known as desk hoteling or hoteling, is a space management practice that uses unassigned seating. Employees can use booking software and mobile apps to reserve desks within the coworking space when they need to work on-site. This gives them the flexibility to work when and how they want.
Despite how it may sound, office hoteling isn't new — it's a part of the alternative officing trend, and it dates back to the late 1990s. During this time, hoteling was popular with consulting, accounting, and tech firms, but it didn't catch on the way it has today.
