Does your business or job require you to travel often? If so, you will want to find a hotel that will help alleviate the burdens of traveling overseas for business. For this reason, before booking a hotel, do your due diligence and find out the amenities that are available in the hotel that you are looking at.

In this article, we will share with you seven essential features that business travelers should look for in a prospective accommodation:

  • Complimentary Wi-Fi access

For business travelers, complimentary Wi-Fi access in the room and around the hotel is imperative to stay connected at all times. This is because reports need to be sent via email, and some may even need hi-speed Internet access for teleconferences.

Although some hotels do have this important feature, they may charge you extra for it, or the connection may not be reliable. For a hotel to be truly called a business hotel, Wi-Fi access should be free and available around the hotel, even in the pool area.

  • Round-the-clock gym access

After a long day’s work of meetings and sightseeing, a quick run on the treadmill or work out at the gym can help you de-stress and make you more productive for the next day. At times, you can even have more quality sleep after a few rounds at the gym.

  • Functional business centers

Since you are traveling for business purposes, you may want to find a hotel that has functional business centers that have all the office machines needed, such as fax machines, photocopiers, printers. One important aspect is that it should be complimentary as well because some hotels, unfortunately, charge a fee for this.

  • Breakfast buffet options

Because you’ll be working and attending meetings at various points of the day, you will need to have a good breakfast to jumpstart your day. It is good to stay at a hotel that has breakfast buffet options so that you can choose your meal. You cannot afford to just drink coffee and go to work because that won’t be sufficient. You will need to fuel your body with nutritious food to be able to perform and think well. 

  • Masseuse and spa selections

After a long day’s work, you may find yourself stressed and with body aches. Your prospective accommodation should also have an in-house masseuse and spas where you can go for a massage to release the tensions in your body to help you destress and feel relaxed.

  • Loyalty programs

If you are a seasoned traveler and you often check in with a particular hotel, it is best to check if they offer loyalty programs. Hotels that offer this give you value for money, especially with the discounts they offer and extra amenities for their elite guests.

 

Final words

The business industry is a lucrative market, and it is important for business travelers to have the best features in a hotel. When choosing accommodation, make sure that it has the essential features as mentioned above so that you can conduct your business efficiently and with ease.
