Review of a Regus Businessworld Remote Office

One of Regus Businessworld's professional lounges in New York is small with four club chairs and one mobile desk, but it's still more space and a more professional environment for working than a crowded coffee shop or bookstore. Access to business lounges like this is convenient for frequent travelers, and larger spaces are available.

Regus also rents out other spaces in the same large office building, so suited people walk about in the halls. Occasionally, you can 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. For travelers, it provides calm in the midst of hectic travel schedules.

The kitchen area is equipped with tea and coffee-making equipment. The coffee is great. The internet access is wireless, high-speed and secure.

Visiting the Regus business lounge is a nice change of pace—an office away from work or travel where you 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 value in any of the three plans Regus offers.
