A special program titled Work Perks aims to reposition some of 94-year-old Hotel Figuero's 268 rooms as day-use offices.

拥有94年历史的菲歌罗酒店推出一个名为“工作优待”的特别项目,将其268个房间改造成白天使用的办公室。

According to Managing Director Connie Wang, the set-up launched in June and is a great opportunity for work-at-home warriors to get out of their houses and spend workdays in clean, quiet and socially distanced spaces that come with high-speed WiFi, unlimited printing privileges and free parking.

总经理康妮·王介绍说,六月份推出的这一项目对于在家工作的上班族是个绝佳机会,他们可以离开自己的家,在整洁、安静、保持社交距离的空间里度过工作日,还有高速的无线网络、无限打印的特权和免费的停车位。

"They want a calming and relaxing atmosphere, away from the distractions of working at home," Wang said, noting that the 350-square-foot rooms sell for $129 per day, with an option to extend to an overnight stay for an additional $20. "For some people, this has become a real treat."

王经理说:“他们想要舒心、放松的氛围,远离家中的纷扰。”她指出,这种350平方英尺(32.5平方米)的房间日租费为129美元(约合人民币903元),多花20美元就可以过夜。“对于某些人而言,这种待遇真是太爽了。”

The notion of designating hotel rooms for day-use only certainly is nothing new; Yannis Moati founded an entire company on the concept back in 2015. That company, HotelsByDay, has grown to include more than 1,500 hotels, and has seen a significant uptick in the number of inquiries for day-use bookings since the pandemic began.

当然,专供白天使用的酒店房间不是什么新概念;2015年雅尼斯·莫阿提基于这一概念创办了一家公司,名叫HotelsByDay。这家公司日益壮大,旗下酒店超过1500家,自从疫情暴发以来,预定日租房的咨询量显著上升。

Moati said the current situation will force hotels to reinvent themselves to stay alive, and he predicted that offering rooms for day-use only is one of the directions they will go.

莫阿提说,当前的形势迫使酒店通过自我改造来维持生存,他还预测,提供专供白天使用的房间将会是酒店业发展的一个方向。
