If you are doing business then many hotels will just hamper your efforts because every hotel is not necessarily a business hotel. Some are more for leisure, some for families, recreation, transit such as airport hotels or some other focus.
To pick a business hotels, look for the following:
"?¢ Location near or in the city’s business district.
"?¢ These days if it aint got wireless or high speed internet access, it aint doing business.
"?¢ Quick customer service, business people hate waiting. The hotel needs to have enough staff for efficient check in and out and any laundry, ironing, housekeeping needs.
"?¢ Well trained staff: this ties in with the one above. Business travellers need things quickly and efficiently and have certain routines and rhythms understood by staff who have been trained well.
"?¢ A substantial line of cabs waiting outside or close to public transport. Getting about town efficiently is essential.
Its great when a business hotel gets all these features right. Makes it easier to sleep at night knowing the next day will be smooth.
