Those who travel for business are a different kind of traveler than those who do for the rest of it. Business travelers often expect a higher standard of accommodation that during their travels does not make travelers common. They are there to work and will not settle for ordinary service. And since business travelers form a larger share of travelers each year, hotels have evolved to meet their exact needs. Here is a list of some of the best hotels for business professionals.
The primary and pivotal need for every business traveler is internet access. And connecting at all times is essential. Now you may be wondering ‘Do all hotels provide this service?’ And they do but if it’s free it’s another fact. What sets Hyatt Hotels apart is its reliable high-speed Wi-Fi service that is available in all rooms and public spaces. And the best part is that it’s been free since the beginning of February 2015. Most other hotels provide this facility but that usually costs money; even where it is free (basic service), the fastest and most reliable service is to be paid for. The quality of the internet and Hyatt leads in this category.
Virgin Hotel, Downtown Chicago:
Virgin America has a chance to know exactly what its customers want. Their unique line and fashion salons are famous among the passengers and with their debut hotel in Chicago, they have gone one step further to satisfy their clientele. This hotel is specially designed to accommodate how business travelers are doing. It has designed the bed to allow you to work comfortably and provides a shuttle service to your business meetings so you can arrive on time and in class aboard a Tesla Model S.
Their website talks about them providing “affordable luxury” in some of the most exciting cities in the world with free Wi-Fi, XL beds and movies that come as standard. It is true that these hotels have an intimate feeling about them. The one in NYC has transformed the typical hotel sterile lobby into a space that has an aura of comfortable living room complete with cozy sofas and communal tables. It makes you feel welcome, it will give you it.
This hotel is unique because it puts an emphasis on fitness – it provides free yoga mats in every room. Not every business traveler wants to make their way to the gym after a tiring day of meetings. So Kimpton bought an integral part of the fitness room for them and they can’t exercise much in their room. It’s a small touch but one that leaves an impression.
With the start-up culture gaining more strength every day, it would only be a matter of time until someone began to accept that particular economy. Ace Hotel’s incredible lobby is made for its intelligent companies to mix and match and you’ll probably find someone then who’d be interested in hearing your start-up idea.
