Living and working as a digital nomad is no longer a dream among new workers in the workforce; it has become a reality. These days, all a full-time employee needs to work is a computer and a decent WiFi connection. Hotels began to take notice of this growing trend by adjusting future property designs to cater to this new generation of workers.
One such brand to capitalize on this trend is Hoxton. Touted as an open-house hotel, Hoxton has properties in London, Amsterdam, Paris, Portland and New York, with a Chicago property coming soon. Walk into a Hoxton and you won’t feel the stale drab of a standard hotel lobby; instead, the lobbies are full of young professionals typing away on keyboards and mingling with likeminded guests. Hoxton plans to build on this already buzzing activity by opening spaces in future accommodations designated just for coworking, allowing travelers to get business done while on the road and without having to leave the property or cram into a drab business center.
Another brand to take this trend and run with it is Eaton. The hotel chain opened its own coworking membership club at its Washington, D.C. and Hong Kong locations where guests can reserve private, shared or communal workspaces to foster great ideas and collaboration, all with a mission for social good.
Other companies making similar moves in the industry include Marriott’s Moxy and CitizenM, both of which invite locals as well as visitors to mingle in shared spaces and pull up a chair for productive conversation.
Traveling to exotic locales often means contending with unusual weather. Americans tend to enjoy a fairly moderate climate, which means your body doesn’t always adapt when you head to places like Africa or South America. So, how do you keep yourself from sweating and stinking up a new city? Try these tips.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
I arrived in Dallas on a cloudy afternoon and, luckily, traffic was light as I drove my rental car into the city in just less than 30 minutes. The Hotel Joule was built in the 1920s in the Neo-Gothic style and is a city landmark in the heart of the business district.

Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella (or “Old City”) is often packed with tourists who wander up and down Las Ramblas spending way too many euros on overpriced paella and sangria. But the border neighborhood of El Raval is just a few steps from the bustle, but worlds away from the exorbitant prices.
