Let’s face it–as exciting as they may sound, business trips can be tiring, stressful and anything but relaxing. Whether you’re a seasoned business traveller or only take the occasional business trip, choosing the most appropriate accommodation to suit your needs is a must.

It’s always important to be mindful of the factors which can help or hinder you on your journey. Before embarking on your next business trip, here are some notable features to consider.

Location and Proximity

It goes without saying that location is of utmost importance when selecting a hotel for your business trip. Ideally, aim to be close to both the city centre and the venue for your conference or meeting, yet not isolated from other necessities. So finding a place with easy access to local transport services is integral to a hassle-free business trip. Sometimes it is nice to be able to take a stroll between conferences, as well as enjoying a leisurely wander around the tourist spots during your downtime.

A Host to Professional Facilities

When possible, always opt for hotels that truly understand the needs of business travel, and provide in-house business facilities accordingly. Dedicated space to work in your room, a proper desk that is more than a bedside table, and Free Wi-Fi is also a bonus.

Your choice of hotel can make or break a trip and by extension, a business deal. If a hotel has a boardroom, look no further. The Sebel Melbourne Docklands sets the stage for productive meetings or dinners within an intimate boardroom space. With beautiful wood panelling and velvet seating, whatever you are hosting will certainly be done with an air of sophistication and comfort.

Facilities for You to Unwind and Recharge

Business trips really do take it out of you, and after a long day, it’s always nice to retire to your room for peace, rest, and comfort. Invest in a hotel that can truly provide a ‘home away from home’ experience, with amenities and facilities for you to really enjoy a little ‘bleisure’—business mixed with leisure.

The smallest of details and facilities on offer by your chosen accommodation can make all the difference. Even beyond the standard minibar and room service, taking advantage of laundry facilities, a pool, fitness centre and day spa, can keep you looking and feeling your sharpest for any meeting with clients.

Loyalty Programs and Partnership Offers

Finally, if you are a seasoned traveller, it is well worth the effort of signing up for a hotel loyalty program or choosing your accommodation where one exists. Everything from discounts at the hotel restaurant to a free night away can be on offer, plus there are plenty of partners offers available too.
