Top 5 Things To Look for When Choosing Accommodation for your Business Trip – Business travel

A hassle-free business trip requires planning and your accommodation option can make all the difference. You need to consider a number of aspects from proximity, transport options to amenities.


Proximity to your meeting locations and key landmarks

This is one of the most important aspects to consider before you book your hotel. Your hotel's location should be within close proximity to where you are going to have meetings. True, there will be transport options available, but it would be good to be able to take a stroll to work when you are in the mood or in case the cab gets delayed. And, knowing that you have ready access to cafés and restaurants within walking distance would make your business trip stress free. Business travel does not need to be all restrictive. You will perform better if you have the opportunity to wind down and feel rejuvenated. Besides, it is good to get around and experience the new city. Hence, try to find a hotel that provides access to entertainment hotspots as well as key business locations. If you are considering a serviced apartment for your business trip, you could consider properties by Discover ASR located in diverse areas across the world.


Transport options

Seasoned business travellers know the importance of pre-booking transportation. It is important to know that you would have ready access to transport when you have to get to meetings and conferences on time. Check with the hotel about transport options and how they can help.


Comfort – In-room service and Wi-Fi

While on some days, your business schedule will allow you time to explore the city and have fun, you'll definitely have long days of business dealings. On the days you have to work on a tight schedule, you would wish to retire to your room for some well-earned peace and rest. This is when you would greatly appreciate quality in-room service. Before you book the hotel, read reviews and check with them about room service. And, more importantly, make sure that they provide in-room Wi-Fi. Even if they offer a business lounge with free Wi-Fi, you will need to access the internet and make zoom calls from your room. Some hotels provide in-room Wi-Fi as part of the room cost without additional costs. You would also need a proper desk and bedside table for work.


Business facilities

In addition to a clean, safe and comfortable space for you to retire, you would need access to professional facilities to conduct meetings from your hotel. Look for a hotel that provides serviced business conference rooms or spacious meeting rooms. Check if they are able to provide access to power points, whiteboards and even tea and coffee making facilities in conference rooms. If you need to conduct a meeting from a neutral location, having access to hotel conference room facilities would be handy.


Check their loyalty programmes

If you frequently travel for business, loyalty programmes would offer you a lot of benefits. Even when you only stay a few nights per year, you can enjoy a number of benefits depending on the hotel's policies. You can expect discounts at hotel restaurants to a free night on offer. If you sign up with a hotel chain, you can enjoy benefits at hotels in other cities. Hence, it is advisable to look into loyalty programmes before you book your hotel.
