Nomad wish list for hotels

Nomad wish list for hotels

Summary: Andy Abramson posts a list of 15 things hotels can do to better serve digital nomads who stay with them on his Working Anywhere blog. Andy logs more miles than just about anyone I know and, like me and a few of my nomadic buddies, always has a variety of devices in his kit to support remote work. It's a great list I'll use to assess where I saty when OtR (On the Road or On the Run – take your pick).

I admit I'm a bit more towards the side of high maintenance when it comes to what I want in a business grade hotel but as a person who is spending more days a month on the road than in my own house I've pretty much nailed down what I want and need in order to be a road warrior/global nomad beyond a very well informed front desk and a "we'll get it done right concierge."

  • My #16: a decent desk.

    Some hotels "get it", but plenty don't. I'm more than a little tired of having to work with my laptop by having to:
    a. prop myself up on a bed or sofa somewhere or sit it on my knees;
    b. lean over to some bureau top;
    c. use a table miles away from a power socket (this one's so prevalent I carry extension cords and a power strip in my kit);
    d. precariously balance my laptop on the edge of an anorexic strip of shelving they charitably call a "desk." (the "desk" in my last supposedly "business class" room was so narrow that if I pulled the laptop out far enough to plug in my USB drive it would have fallen to the floor. Directly above that desk was a 30-some-odd-inch plasma TV, inches from my face.)

    Otherwise, good list.
