Where to stay on business: how to decide
Whether it’s for a family holiday, a romantic getaway or a quick dash in and out for a business conference, finding somewhere to stay that matches your needs is the most important part of any trip.
With so much else to consider on a business trip, it is important that you invest the required level of thought into this decision. Whilst there are numerous tips on national air travel available online, it can often be challenging to find independent reviews and tips when it comes to choosing a hotel. Here are some things to consider:
What is the purpose of your visit?
If you’re planning on really “experiencing” a city, then it is probably best to pick a hotel within the centre. When arriving at your chosen destination by plane, it is true that while it may take you a little longer to reach your accommodation, when reached you will be almost within walking distance of all the city’s most important attractions.
Hotels located centrally in large cities such as London are built close to many points of interest and cater specifically for groups or individuals looking to visit as many places they can whilst on a business trip.
If you are coming to the city via domestic flights, then an airport hotel is a very sound option. Not only are they located a stone’s throw from your arrival point, allowing for an extremely rapid transit from airport gate to bedroom, but are also afforded superior transport links to destinations all over the city.
Airport hotels in London and Manchester offer high-speed links, via both road and rail, to establishments in each city which are used for business conferences, delegate meetings and trade shows. If time and speed are of the essence, then booking a hotel close to one of the city’s main airports is essential.
What is your price range?
Many hotels located in city centres are extremely expensive. Their prestigious locations often mean big money for a lesser quality than you may find on the outskirts of a city.
Also, many airport hotels feature superior amenities for deep relaxation. Many are equipped with gyms, saunas, spas and swimming pools and offer a truly luxurious stay for a fraction of the price of a city centre hotel.
For holiday-makers, this is a great option if you are with children, as not only will they be entertained at all hours of the day – when not running around the city – but you will not have to break the bank when trying to keep everyone happy.
