Make The Hotel Concord Your Home Office for Business TravelBusiness travel is hard. You're away from home, away from your office often in a new place, and it can be difficult to maintain work, eating and fitness routines that can help you to focus when you're working.
When traveling for business you need to look for amenities that can help you to make your trip a success. Surveys of frequent business travelers have found that they seek out hotels that can provide them with certain comforts. Here are the top five business amenities business travelers are looking for.
Location, Location, Location!This is the number one criteria for most business travel. It's important to make your home base in a hotel that is conveniently located so you're not spending all your time on the road, instead of closing deals. Ideally, you'll want your hotel to be near an airport, have convenient access to transportation, and be in a population center with easy access to major highways, and other nearby cities.
The Hotel Concord is conveniently located in the heart of historic downtown Concord, New Hampshire. We're within walking distance of major state government offices, close to large area businesses, and a short 20-minute drive from the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport. Concord is in south/central New Hampshire and is a short drive to Nashua, Manchester, Salem, Laconia, and Portsmouth, New Hampshire, about an hour drive to Boston and less than two hours from Worcester, Massachusetts and Portland, Maine.
Free High-Speed Wi-Fi and Other Business TechnologyIf you're working on the road, you'll need reliable Wi-Fi to stay in touch with the office and access the critical documents you'll need to conduct business. You'll also need access to business technology like printing, fax and scanning capabilities. Your hotel should offer a business center and free in-room Wi-Fi in order to work effectively. In-room technology should include keyless entry and an assortment of chargers for phones and laptops.
At The Hotel Concord, all our rooms come with complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi. Our business center is equipped with all the latest technology including printing, faxing and scanning capabilities. If you need more space for meetings, we have several meeting areas available, which include projection units, lighting, and sound, and our concierge staff is always happy to help with all your needs. There are also two Executive Lounges available on the fourth and sixth floors offering guests a place to relax, read, and work in comfortable seating around a fireplace.
In-Room Workspace and Never-Ending CoffeeWhen you're on the road you're most likely going to be spending time working in your room. Whether it's reviewing architectural drawings, preparing reports, or making Skype calls, you need a dedicated, ergonomic work area with comfortable seating and easy access to power outlets and USB ports. The space should also have good lighting and be relatively soundproof to keep the elevator, road, or street noise out.
Some theorists argue that the modern world began when the abundant use of coffee kick-started the Industrial Revolution. Whether or not that's true, today, coffee is a necessity for many in the business world, and business travel is fueled by coffee. When we're on the road, we all want and need coffee in our lives all the time! Make sure your hotel has in-room coffee. It will make life easier!
Each of the 38 modern, sophisticated rooms in The Hotel Concord provides our guests with a dedicated, well-lit workspace that includes multiple power outlets and USB charging ports. We also provide an Amazon Echo Dot in each room that's perfect for monitoring traffic, checking the weather, listening to music while you work or answering any other questions you may have. Oh, and there's a Keurig coffee machine in each room along with a delicious selection of blends to meet every taste...so we've got that covered too!
Convenient ParkingThere's nothing worse than getting back to your hotel after a long day on the road and having to spend 20 minutes trying to park your car. Make sure your hotel offers easy convenient parking on the premises, or within a short walking distance.
The Capital Commons Parking Garage is a covered, 510-space parking garage attached to The Hotel Concord with parking available for our guests. Step out of your car after a long day and walk right into the lobby.
Fitness FacilitiesKeeping up with your fitness regimen is the key to staying sharp when you're working. Exercise can keep you connected, feeling great, and on your game. Make sure any hotel you choose either offers a fitness room on the premises, or a discount or complimentary access to a local gym.
The Gym at The Hotel Concord is open 24 hours a day and equipped with the latest cardiovascular machines and weights. So, whether you like to exercise before your day starts, or wind down with a workout when the day is done, we've got you covered!
