While tourism is one of the biggest markets for your Central Florida hotel, there is no shortage of business travelers coming to our area throughout the year. Corporations send executives down for meetings, and government agencies hold conferences and do research on our shores. All of these people come expecting excellent hotel service that helps them to be efficient and productive during their visits.
Your hotel management has customer service dialed in to meet the needs of your vacationing guests, but here are a few amenities that your business traveling guests may be looking for.
1. Healthy Breakfast
Business travel has become an art form for some, packing only a small carry-on, popping in and out of big cities, efficiency is the name of the game for these professionals. In many cases their tight schedules don’t allow lots of extra time to luxuriate over breakfast in the morning, so having a warm, healthy breakfast available at the hotel is a must. Whether you provide a continental breakfast, or a more formal dining experience, your guests will appreciate the convenience of grabbing a bite to eat before hitting the road in the morning.
2. On-site Gym Facilities
Because business travelers often spend a great deal of time on the road, it’s important for them to keep some semblance of normalcy in their routines. Maintaining a 24-hour, on site gym facility allows the weary business traveler the opportunity to stick to his or her regular exercise routine while visiting your hotel. In addition to on site gym facilities, you may also consider offering yoga classes for those travelers who need a moment to relax, or mapped out running/walking routes for people who would prefer to get some fresh air.
3. Free high speed Internet
Chances are you are already providing free wireless internet to your hotel guests, but is it strong and fast enough to support the needs of your guests who need to video conference and stream with clients and colleagues located all over the world? The business travelers who frequent your hotel need to have the resources available to get work done from the comfort of their own rooms. Providing them all of these necessities will ensure they keep coming back for more.
4. Offices and Conference Rooms
Some of your clients will want to host meetings at your facility, and providing providing offices and conference rooms is an excellent added convenience. Your regular business traveler guests can host twice as many important meetings in one day if they don’t have to leave the comfort of your hotel.
