Las Vegas's reputation for excess is exactly what makes it a prime spot for corporate travellers. Perhaps you're an Ambitious entrepreneur heading to the city to capitalise on a new business venture, or maybe it's a corporate event that's lured you to Sin City. Either way, this Entertainment Capital of the World knows how to treat guests! With hotels and suites to suit all budgets and styles, here are four excellent hotels worthy of your stay next time you're in Las Vegas.
Hyatt Place Las Vegas
Off Strip accommodation that offers a quality stay at budget prices doesn't get much better than this. Even better, Hyatt Place caters specifically to the business travel sector, with a number of in-room inclusions designed to make your time on the road more comfortable and convenient.
It all starts with the rooms. There are three configurations to choose from, all of which have been newly renovated to offer crisp, contemporary interiors that focus firmly on comfort. Along with comfy Hyatt Grand beds and granite ensuites, each room comes complete with a Cozy Corner sitting area, designated workspace, remote printing capabilities, WiFi access and connectivity panels to keep your devices topped up. Guests can also take advantage of the Odds & Ends and Kitchen Skillet services. The former lets you buy, borrow or use free of charge all those little items that tend to get left behind in the rush to get out the door, while the latter provides early starters with (hot and cold) breakfast items at no extra charge.
There is also a pool onsite, dedicated meeting and event facilities and a 24-hour Stay Fit fitness centre. If you book your stay through FCBT, you'll also enjoy such SmartSTAY benefits as complimentary WiFi, breakfast and airport shuttle services.
Hilton Grand Vacations Las Vegas
Stay in the heart of the action without all the hustle at this elegant Hilton hotel. Location on the Strip, the Hilton Grand Vacations is a non-casino hotel that provides easy access to many of Las Vegas's top attractions and business facilities. This includes the Las Vegas Convention Centre.
Choose from Studio rooms or 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom suites, all of which feature the convenience of a fully equipped kitchen and washer and dryer. Spacious layouts across the board ensure comfort as does a King Bed, private ensuite and daily housekeeping service. Upgrade your stay to one of the suites, which also feature separate sitting areas.
Beyond the rooms, the hotel is fully equipped to meet the demands of any corporate traveller, with a Business Centre, complimentary printing service and meeting rooms. When you're not toiling away on the job, enjoy the lounge, pool and poolside bar, fitness room and table tennis table. There is even a tour desk and concierge to help you make sightseeing arrangements should you find the time.
