One thing is for certain, Australia is in the middle of a decade of change. Almost every industry or establishment is going through a degree of disruption and this extends to the way that people work and earn their living, as well. This has led to the rise of the digital nomad and the individual who works on a contract by contract basis and neither of these individuals knows what the inside of a conventional office looks like. It's not surprising, therefore, that there has been a spike in the number of people looking for a temporary or semi-permanent address, as they go about their lives. If you're in this position, why should you consider hotel accommodation as your mode of housing?
What's the Attraction?
The digital nomad is somebody who can earn their living anywhere, so long as they have a solid Internet connection. In many respects, they are like those who are on contract or assignment work, and are not necessarily going to be in one place for an extended period of time. This makes a hotel the ideal choice, as it provides almost all the comforts of home in a convenient package, with no long-term commitment.
Cooking and Washing
For example, many budget hotels today offer cooking facilities within the room and this certainly makes a huge difference when it comes to controlling costs. Each hotel likely has a laundry room which can be accessed for a small amount of money by a resident, or if not there is almost always a laundry facility close by.
Close to Everything
Those people who do have to "check in" to a central office location from time to time, or may need access to a conference room of some kind can invariably find these solutions close by, when they choose a hotel that is city-based. It also goes without saying, there's no commute time any more.
When it comes to looking after the home, don't forget that hotels have a room cleaning service, to change bed linens and towels, take out the rubbish and tidy up in general.
Finally, don't forget that the hotel price is all-inclusive, so you don't have to pay monthly utility bills for electricity, water and so on.
What's Not to Like?
When you add it all up, it's easy to see why the nomadic life is a whole lot easier than the alternative in this new era.
