What to look for from a hotel on a business trip

Posted by Ash K on Monday, February 27, 2012 0

From wireless internet access to its proximity to the airport, there are many factors that govern the choice of a business trip hotel.
Travelling for your business can be arduous. Long journeys and lonely nights can build up to a
stressful and unsettling experience, especially if the hotels you stay at don't provide you with a
comfortable experience. That's why it's so important to do your research before booking a business
hotel, to ensure that you're staying in a place that's homely and offers you essential business
amenities. If you're not sure how to begin looking for a perfect business hotel, here are a few tips to
get you started.

Today, the most important business consideration when booking a hotel is internet access. Most
businesspeople assume that the hotel they'll be staying in will have internet access, but this isn't
always the case. Sometimes, a hotel will provide internet access only in its public areas - for example,
in the lobby, bar or restaurant - but not in its rooms. The best accommodation for business travellers
offer free wireless internet in all rooms, so look out for these hotels when booking your stay.

Next, you need to consider the location of your hotel. In some big cities like London, it can take
longer than expected to travel across town. For instance, if you have business in the city centre but
you're staying in Earl's Court in west London, it could take up to 40 minutes to travel between the
two locations on the tube. So it makes more sense to book a hotel near the location of your business
meetings, one that's either a short taxi ride away or within walking distance.

If you're arriving at your business destination early in the morning or late at night, this should also
have a bearing on the hotel that you choose. Airport hotels can be very convenient if you're flying
at awkward hours, and are often tailored particularly towards business travellers. If you choose an
airport hotel, ensure that it is located near quick transport links into the city. For example, if you're
staying at one of the many London hotels near Heathrow Airport, the Heathrow Express train will take you into the city centre in just 15 minutes.

For business travellers planning to stay in Last minute hotels for more than one or two nights, the business amenities available in your accommodation should be very influential when making your choice. If you plan to host meetings, for instance, you may wish to look for a hotel that has meeting rooms for hire. You may also require printing, copying and scanning facilities, so it's advisable to check exactly what business facilities are available - and how much they cost to use - before making a booking.
