Staying in a business hotel is often associated with hard work and little in terms of luxury.
But nothing could (or should) be further from the truth.
In fact, a lot of people don’t realize this—but maximizing your stay in a business hotel really all comes down to this:
Getting as much accomplished as possible while experiencing as much ‘leisure’ as possible at the same time.
Business hotels are actually known for being luxurious. All you need to do is learn how to make the most of it.
With that being said, we decided to pull back the lid and describe exactly how to maximize your next business hotel stay–to help you get as many perks and as many benefits as possible out of the experience.
Let’s dive into it.
1. Arrive Early
A lot of hotels have a somewhat early check-in time.
And yet, most people end up arriving at the last moment to secure their booking.
But when you follow this typical pattern, you reduce some of the awesome benefits of getting to stay in a business hotel right from the get-go.
If the hotel has some luxurious amenities (a spa, a pool, a hot tub, a gym, etc.) then it may be in your best interest to go ahead and get checked in as early as possible. Then, you can knock out some of that work on the wifi in the comfort of your room, and enjoy a few relaxing amenities before the evening’s activities.
2. Stay Late
On the same token, a lot of business travelers get up and rush out of their hotel at the earliest possible hour—mostly because they’re used to ‘getting up and moving’ when the time comes to do so.
But if you stay a bit later and enjoy a few more of the amenities your hotel has to offer before checking out, you may come to find that you can get a lot more out of the stay than you ever would have planned on.
For example—getting in on the continental breakfast and taking a quick swim before packing up and checking out could do wonders for making your day better (and getting you a bit more value out of the cost of the room at the same time).
Have you recently experienced some success in your life or career?
Was your work trip a success?
Are you excited that you got the opportunity to travel and stay at an amazing hotel while working?
If so, then you may want to use this stay as an excuse to also have your own personal celebration.
Whatever it is you’re celebrating, take some time to soak in those good, positive vibes while staying in a beautiful, on-location business hotel. Maybe even order a bottle of champagne to go along with some fine-dining room service!
This is an occasion to enjoy and make the most of.
4. Research The Amenities Beforehand
Knowing the ins and outs of the amenities available before you arrive at the hotel is crucial to the process of maximizing your business stay.
A lot of people don’t actually research their business hotel destinations before arriving—which is really a shame.
Sometimes, these hotels have a lot more to offer than first meets the eye. In fact, the vast majority of their available amenities may not be readily apparent—until you’ve spent a bit of time going through their website (or even having a conversation with the receptionist).
With all of that being said, it’s always a great idea to do just a little bit of research on your own before you even arrive. You may come to realize that they offer stuff you never would have even thought to ask about. And this could really help you to mazimize your stay and make it even more awesome.
There you have it.
Everything you need to know about how to maximize your stay on your next business hotel adventure.
Equipped with this information, you now know everything needed to really make the most of your trip—from beginning to end.
All that’s left now is to get out there and make it happen.
Go enjoy that next hotel stay! You definitely deserve it.
