What makes a hotel worthy of being on the list of being the best for business travelers? Is it the comfy beds, the expansive breakfast options, of the view from the top? Truthfully, these can all make a good hotel even better, but reliable Wi-Fi, early check-in, and late check-out and some of the knock-you-socks-off amenities that a great hotel can offer the road-weary business traveler.
