Marriott International's Marriott Bonvoy loyalty platform has launched a Work Anywhere booking page, offering guests the ability to search for and book work-from-hotel promotions at more than 2,000 Marriott properties worldwide.

The Work Anywhere program features three flexible work-from-hotel packages: the Day Pass, Stay Pass and Play Pass.

Marriott's Day Pass daytime package features a 6 a.m. check-in and 6 p.m. checkout as well as access to amenities like enhanced WiFi and printing, fax and scanning equipment.

A Stay Pass combines a Day Pass with an overnight stay, granting guests a 6 a.m. check-in and a late 6 p.m. checkout on the day of departure. In addition to the benefits included in the Day Pass package, Stay Pass guests can access hotel amenities like the pool or fitness center. They can also receive free breakfast and complimentary evening cocktails where available.

Lastly, Marriott's Play Pass package is designed for families seeking a remote work- and school-friendly getaway. Available at select luxury and resort properties, the Play Pass includes access to amenities like a business concierge, supervised kids' activities, office or study spaces and other perks.

"Working remotely doesn't necessarily have to mean working from home, where blurred lines between personal and professional lives can create distractions and stress," Stephanie Linnartz, Marriott International's group president for consumer operations, technology and emerging businesses, said in a statement. "By providing flexible booking options, our loyalty members and guests have a familiar alternative when choosing where to work."

Marriott is one of several major hospitality players looking to cater to remote workers with new work-from-hotel packages.

In early October, Hilton unveiled WorkSpaces by Hilton, a work-from-hotel pilot program rolling out across the U.S. and the U.K. Hyatt has similarly ramped up focus on its Work From Hyatt initiative, recently expanding the offering to nearly 60 hotels nationwide, while InterContinental Hotels Group's Kimpton brand has launched work-from-hotel packages at a number of properties as well as a virtual-learning program for families.
