Those of you who have traveled lately may have noticed how busy the airports and highways are. According to travel management company TripActions, business travel bookings for the first quarter of 2022 outpaced more than half of all bookings for 2021, with an 875% increase from March 2021 to March 2022. Travelers are also booking what are known as "bleisure" stays—that is business trips combined with a few extra days of leisure.
However, natural challenges arise for the frequent business traveler who seeks a productive work environment. During the pandemic, the hotel industry did a great job of pivoting to offer day use of their rooms as private, on demand offices, but that’s problematic going forward.
