One of the keys to a successful business trip is securing appropriate accommodation. Your choice of hotel can make or break a trip, and by extension a deal. It is important to be mindful of the factors which can help or hinder you on your journey.

Searching for a hotel in an unfamiliar city can prove time consuming, especially if you are visiting a country for the first time. Cultural factors and language barriers serve only to add to the confusion. And when you are traveling for business, time is money.

Often, business trips will be short and packed with important meetings and events. This leaves very little downtime for traveling around or sightseeing. Naturally, you don’t want to sacrifice comfort for convenience, especially when it comes to essential amenities such as restaurants.

Finding the perfect hotel for your trip can take several hours – time that you probably don’t have to spare when planning an important journey. But don’t worry, our expert concierge team is on hand to assist. Here we will look at the top five considerations when it comes to arranging accommodation for your next business trip.

Choosing the most convenient location usually depends on a number of factors, including distance from your airport of arrival, and where you will doing business.

In general, location is the number one factor when selecting a hotel for your business trip. Ideally, you wish to be close to both the airport and the venue for your conference or meetings, yet not isolated from other necessities. City center hotels are often the most desirable, but can present challenges due to traffic congestion and lengthy commutes. Airport hotels, on the other hand, can prove too remote. It is important to cross check all the factors which may affect the journey to and from your accommodation, in order to minimize time spent on the road. This can involve a lot of research, however it is well worth the effort for the time you’ll save during your trip.
