Take a look on Airbnb, and you'll find a free-for-all market spanning from cheap bunk beds to lifestyle magazine-ready loft apartments. On rival home-sharing service Onefinestay, you'll find that the listings are consciously curated — it may very well be, if the complimentary personal iPhone, welcome staff, and numerous amenities say anything, an Airbnb for the rich.
The company was founded in 2009 and operates in London, New York, Paris, Rome, and Los Angeles. It was acquired in April by France's AccorHotels for £117 million, or about $155 million.
Recently the site started curating listings to more amenity-specific "folios." For instance, there's a "work folio" where business travelers can find places that are better equipped to get work done than your usual hotel room. The luxury properties in this particular folio are often located close to the city's main business district as well.
We picked out some of the most beautiful listings from Onefinestay's Work Folio, where you can work as well as relax. The listings range from $353 to $2,255 a night. Take a look.

The work area sports two clean desks and plenty of bookshelves.
The bedroom space is spartan but spacious, and the windows let just enough light peek through in the morning.
