When it comes to frequent business travel, certain things can make your life a little bit easier. When choosing a hotel, look for these must-have amenities to ensure you have a convenient and comfortable work trip.
A business center
A well-equipped business center with a computer, access to the internet and a printer can help you get some work done in a quiet place, or can save you in a pinch. Forgot to print your presentation notes? No problem!
Maintaining your health on the road is important. A fitness facility can help keep you on track, and allows you to blow off some steam after a long day of travel or meetings.
Not only should your room have a desk and a comfortable chair for getting work done, but extras such as a microwave, refrigerator, iron, blow dryer and coffee maker can really go a long way in making your stay more comfortable.
A long work day on the road should start with a hot cup of coffee or tea and a convenient, healthy meal. A hotel that provides a complimentary breakfast will save you both time and money in the morning.
An airport shuttle
Not every trip will require that you rent a car, but you will still need to get from the airport to your hotel and back. A complementary airport shuttle offers convenience (no waiting in the taxi line at the airport!), and also helps you to save a little money.
A reliable, fast internet connection is crucial on a business trip. Bonus points if it’s complimentary!
Flexible check-in and check-out
As a business traveler, you often arrive at your destination early in the morning, and may need to freshen up before you head to your first meeting or event. You also may leave later in the day, after business hours. A hotel that is flexible with check-in and check-out times can certainly make travel days a bit less stressful.
If you need to host any meetings at your hotel, look for one with a functional conference room. If you are entertaining guests with drinks or lunch/dinner, be sure there is a restaurant on the property or in close proximity to you and your colleagues.
A loyalty program
Not only will you rack up points for free nights, discounts or complimentary upgrades, you can often score additional amenities, even some that were mentioned above, when you belong to a hotel’s loyalty program.
