Tips for choosing a hotel for solo business trips
     2014-July-11  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    What do women business travelers look for in a hotel room?

    For women who travel solo often, here are tips for ensuring you’re safe, comfortable and ready for business.

    1. Make sure it has positive reviews. Many search engines are great places to start your hotel search. Filter hotel reviews so that you see only the reviews submitted by solo travelers or business travelers. Look at negative reviews first to see if there’s a common theme. If business travelers complain that the internet connection is unreliable or solo travelers report that there isn’t a second lock on the door, those are deal breakers.

    2. Find a one-stop shop. A hotel with a restaurant, bar, coffee shop and meeting rooms makes it easy to do things efficiently. Use the meeting room as a neutral space to conduct a business meeting and the restaurant as an easy-to-access dinner meeting location.

    3. Look for a female-friendly hotel brand. Forgetting to pack something is a part of traveling. Thankfully, hotels are stepping up to the plate.

    4. Complimentary shuttle services and private drivers are great. With this type of service, you don’t have to worry about renting a car, driving it around unfamiliar streets, and parking it in close quarters – all of which can be an inefficient use of your valuable time. Also, if you’re attending a business event that runs into the night, arrange for a pickup to avoid waiting outside or walking home alone. Finally, getting to and from the airport just got that much easier.

    5. Don’t forget to check for free, unlimited Wi-Fi. Free and unlimited in-room Wi-Fi access should always be at the top of your must-have list. Some hotels put a cap on your daily usage. Make sure you chose a hotel where access is unlimited to avoid surprise fees.

    6. Check for in-room phones. A new trend in “hip” hotels is to remove basic amenities like in-room phones. As a business traveler, having a phone in your room can save you time if you need to ask the front desk a question, and it is certainly handy if there is an emergency while you’re in your room.
