What Do Business Travelers Really Want From A Hotel?

If your boutique hotel is trying to attract business travelers, it pays to know just what business travelers find attractive in the first place. At OccupancySolutions.com, we want to help you to bring in those visitors you’re looking to attract, and to do so in an organic way that keeps them coming back again and again. Some features and amenities that tend to be particularly attractive to business travelers are:

  • Location – If your boutique hotel boasts an incredible location, it’s always important to advertise it when looking to attract business travelers. This location could be a particularly serene or calming one, or one that is in the thick of the hustle and bustle of town. Business travelers want to be close to their place of business for easy commuting to meetings and offices, but they also want a great atmosphere to go with it.
  • Choice – Business travelers are looking for options, and showcasing yours could be key to attracting that business travel crowd. Do you offer different breakfast choices? Room choices? Options for check-in and check-out? Different booking options? Flexible booking? Advertise the multitude of choices you offer and how you can work with your business travel guests to ensure they get the exact experience they want to have.
  • Productivity amenities – Business travelers want to be productive, and get their tasks done while they’re away on a business trip. Fast WiFi, comfortable desk spaces, and plenty of quiet spaces to concentrate are key to attracting the business travel crowd.
  • A personalized and caring experience – Business travelers might be traveling on business, but they’re still human at the end of the day. They want to be able to feel relaxed after a busy workday, and they want that personalized experience that shows they’re being well looked after. Offering a personalized and caring experience helps to let business travelers know that you’re there to take care of them both personally and professionally.

If you’re looking to attract more business travelers to your boutique hotel, we at OccupancySolutions.com can help. Contact us today to learn more about how you can show local business travelers what you can offer them today.
