When planning a business trip to the Okanagan, your hotel should not only be able to substitute as an office, but should also be a place that you can call your second home by offering comfortable rooms and leisure activities, along with business facilities. To make sure you are getting all these services and more, use this checklist when booking your business hotel in West Kelowna.
1. A PLACE TO WORK
When searching for a business hotel, you’ll need to find a place where you can work on that important presentation or project from not only your hotel room, but from a separate area, where you can work without distraction. It helps to look for a hotel that offers a workstation and/or space with amenities such as:
Free WiFi and Internet
Plugins for your devices
Meeting room for conferences and events
2. ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME
There are certain requirements that a business traveller needs when booking a hotel room. See if the hotel offers a suite with extra space and amenities such as a desk, free WiFi, plugins, and good lighting so you can read and write. It also helps to have a living space that is separate from the bedroom, in case you want to entertain clients, or watch TV without distracting the person you may be travelling with. A good night’s rest is also important, so look for a private and quiet room that has a large enough and comfortable bed and an adjustable thermostat, so there is no chance of overheating or becoming too cold during the night.
3. LEISURELY LOCATION
It’s important when on a business trip to make some spare time for yourself. That includes making sure you get some rest and relaxation as well as exercise. Look for a hotel with a pool, hot tub and fitness centre, and see if there are some nearby leisure activities such as golf. The Okanagan is also known for its wineries, so see if your hotel offers Okanagan wine tour packages for you and your business clients to enjoy a day out.
4. FUEL ON FOOD
If you plan on attending a number of meetings, it’s important not to skip the most important meal of the day. That’s why you should look for hotels that offer both bed and breakfast in West Kelowna. Your breakfast should include a selection of healthy items that include necessary protein, vitamins and carbohydrates to keep your energy up and your brain functioning. No time to sit down and eat? See if you can pick up a grab-and-go bag as you head out for your day.
5. WEST KELOWNA HOTEL REVIEWS
When looking for your business hotel, it helps to read reviews on travel sites to make sure the hotel has everything you require. A look at reviews of hotel rooms will give you an indication on room space, cleanliness, customer service, hotel facilities and its location to amenities such as restaurants, shopping, and attractions such as wineries and golf courses.
