Here at The Hotel Concord, our goal is to meet all of your needs the next time you're traveling on business. Here are a few tips for choosing the right hotel, and why you should make The Hotel Concord your travel destination if you're planning a business trip to the New Hampshire area.
Traveling on Business? Start with LocationThe first thing you should consider when choosing a hotel for your trip is the physical location of your accommodations. While it probably sounds obvious, it's often common for business travelers to choose their accommodations based on price rather than location. While you still may have to drive or hire a taxi to reach some venues, staying in a centralized location can save you time, and reduce stress.
The Hotel Concord is conveniently located downtown in historic Concord, New Hampshire. Concord is the perfect centralized location for anyone doing business in New Hampshire, eastern and central Massachusetts, and the Maine seacoast.

If you're traveling on business in the Northeast, Concord is a great city to make your home base.
Look for Exemplary ServiceWhen you arrive tired after a long trip, it's a pleasant experience to find hotel staff that is knowledgeable, pleasant to deal with, and attentive to your needs. It's crucial that your morning wake-up call is on time, and you want to make sure that the cab is waiting when you're ready to leave, or that your laundry will arrive from the cleaners when you need it.
Concierge service is an included amenity when you stay at The Hotel Concord.

Business Facilities and Support ServicesTraveling on business means that your hotel is your office when you're on the road. It's essential to research the business facilities your chosen hotel provides. You might assume that certain features like a business center with high-speed Internet access, fax, scanner, and copy machine might be available at your hotel, but upon arrival see that they're actually not.
The Hotel Concord offers complete business services and facilities including meeting and conference rooms, projectors, screens and other technology, a comprehensive business center, and even catering if requested.
Staying Healthy When Traveling on BusinessWorking away from home is disruptive to your daily routine. One of the biggest problems when on the road is the lack of healthy eating choices. Make sure you can get a quality meal at a decent price when you're done for the day. Does your hotel offer in house dining or room service for those nights where you're just too wiped out to go out? Healthy eating can keep you working hard throughout your stay. Make sure that if your hotel doesn't offer dining services that there are good restaurants close by.
Another essential element of a healthy lifestyle is, of course, exercise. Unless you belong to a gym like Planet Fitness or the Y, if you exercise, make sure your hotel offers an exercise room, pool or fitness center as an amenity. Maintaining your exercise regimen when traveling can reduce stress and keep you on your game. Ask the concierge if he can get passes to a local gym if you have to stay in a hotel that doesn't offer a fitness center.
Located right in the heart of downtown Concord, we're within walking distance of some of the best restaurants in town. In fact, O Steaks & Seafood is a local favorite, and you can get there right from the lobby. Ask the Concierge to make a reservation.

Look for Quality – Furniture, Fittings, and FinishesYour hotel is your home and your office when you're on the road. Upscaling to more comfortable surrounds means you'll be better rested, and more productive. When choosing your hotel, make sure to research the rooms. Look at pictures, make sure there is a work area with ample lighting and is close to outlets. See if there is a charging station, make sure there' a working Keurig, or another coffee machine if you need that morning jolt. Make sure you'll have basics like plenty of towels, shower supplies, coffee, a small refrigerator, and a decent TV for those down times.
