Review of Regus Businessworld Remote Offices

I'm writing this in one of Regus Businessworld's professional lounges in New York. The room is pretty small, with only four club chairs, one mobile desk, and one cable for wired Internet, but it's still more space and more of a professional environment for working than a crowded coffee shop or bookstore.

Regus also rents out other spaces in this large office building, so I see suited people walking about in the halls, and even hear a muffled meeting going on in the room next door. For some, the background noise and motion might be irritating, but being among other people while working on your own is the main reason to use a business lounge instead of your home office -- you're not as isolated and it's a good change of scenery that could make you more productive.

Access to business lounges like this is also most convenient for frequent travelers.

I'm really appreciating the great coffee now but have been having trouble with the Internet access.

Despite the wi-fi issues, visiting the Regus business lounge was a nice change of pace -- an office away from my home office where I can feel more businesslike. If you travel frequently and need reliable places to work that are more private and secure than public hotspots, you would likely find more value in the Gold membership, but keep in mind that different business world locations may vary in terms of working environment.
