With London's global position as one of the most important cities in the world in business and industry, it is very important that London offers a good level of quality for the many business visitors who travel to the capital during business trips throughout the year. Especially with the city of London still maintaining its position as the center of World Finance, there are an abundance of foreign and domestic visitors seeking the comfort and facilities of first-class hotels in the city.
Since the 1970s, when the Park Lane Hilton was sometimes seen as the residence during a business trip to London, all major international hotels have built hotels that are geared towards the business traveler in the city, in fact most hotel chains have numerous accommodations via the capital city (Hilton Hotels is now number 34 in total, including the airports and suburbs of London!). Holiday Inn, Accor Hotels, Marriott Hotels and Thistle Hotels, but to name but a few, all have business hotels in London with a high level of comfort and a wide range of facilities that are primarily aimed at the business traveler. New players on the London market also have very good business hotels – H10 for example and the Park Plaza Hotel chain have done their best to offer rooms suitable for business people – the Park Plaza Westminster for example is an all-suite hotel with rooms with a small lounge and kitchenette, next to a generous bedroom and a fantastic location close to the Westminster Bridge. The private hotels are also designed for business: the Cadogan Hotel at Harrods department store and the Ritz Hotel in London's Piccadilly Street not only offer good facilities and first-class quality, but also a demanding service for the more high level of customers associated with such large business hotels.
The rooms in all these hotels have the typical facilities that you can expect in a room like this, as well as the rooms and suites. powerful showers (or "rain showers"). Internet connectivity in general via Wi-Fi is also a requirement now that more and more hotels are forced to compete due to competition (and negative comments from guests) to offer this service for free. The business hotels offer guests excellent dining options – usually a full English breakfast and a choice of restaurants in the hotel for dinner at surprisingly reasonable prices. After a busy day doing business in the city, sometimes a good rewarding drink is needed and the hotels can offer a good accommodation for their inviting cocktail bars that, especially during the happy hour period of 17.00 – 19.00 hours, can be the place to be as you; re in the right hotel!
