A Guide to Choosing the Right Hotel for your Next Business Trip

Finding the right hotel for your business can be hard work and this is especially the case if you are traveling on your own. You may feel as though nothing you see is worth the money and you also need to make sure that you are in a good location for meetings as well. The truth is that it is more than possible for you to find a brilliant hotel without breaking the bank, and this guide is designed to help.


The first thing that you need to do when you book a hotel do check out the reviews that they have. When you look through the reviews, you’ll want to make sure that you only pay attention to those that have been listed by business owners. This is because some hotels are more catered to businesses when compared to individuals so this is the main thing that you need to watch out for. For example, if a lot of business owners are stating that the internet is awful to use then you need to make sure that you take this into account when planning your trip.


One Stop Shops

If you are able to find a hotel that has a restaurant, a coffee shop and even several meeting rooms then this will make it very easy for you to get everything done efficiently. You’ll also want to make sure that you have somewhere that you can use as a neutral space as this will make it far easier for you to get everything done. Hotels like the AC Hotel Guadalajara are ideal in this instance as they can really help you to find out everything you need to know and they can even cater their hotel to meet your individual needs as well.




If you are travelling alone then it is great if you can find one that offers a shuttle service. When you are on your own, the last thing that you need is to be travelling alone and you also don’t want to worry about how you are going to meet up with other business owners as well. If one of your business events happens to run into the night then try and make sure that you have something planned so you don’t have to worry about getting home in an unsafe area.


Another thing that you have to look out for is whether the WiFi is free or whether it is unlimited. After all, some hotels will offer free WiFi but this could only be for a very set amount of time or even for a set amount of downloadable data. The last thing that you need is to be worrying about things like this when you are trying to operate your business, so make the effort to really get to know the hotel’s policy regarding the internet and also find out if it is possible for you to go through a third party provider when purchasing your WiFi. This could save you a ton of time and money at a later date.
