Business travellers want comfy bed, fast internet
June 9, 2008
A recent survey of business travellers by Radisson Hotels and Resorts reveal that comfort and technology (and a TV remote) are tops for relaxing business travel.

Half of Boomers and nearly that many Gen X/Y (48 percent) think a comfortable bed is the most important hotel feature, and more than one third of both groups indicated the quickest way to get stressed was through a slow or nonexistent hotel Internet connection.

Both Boomer and Gen X/Y business travellers chose “in-room spa” as their top dream hotel amenity (Boomers 56 percent, Gen X/Y 58 percent) and “hot shower” as the best way to unwind at the hotel (Boomers 38 percent, Gen X/Y 33 percent) and agreed that mini-bars (Boomers 69 percent, Gen X/Y 62 percent) and aromatherapy (Boomers 12 percent, Gen X/Y 13 percent) are the top amenities they don’t need.

When asked what they don’t want anyone to know they do on a business trip, both groups noted “watch TV all night” (Boomers 23 percent, Gen X/Y 20 percent) as a top guilty pleasure, although Boomers rated “eat junk food” (27 percent) as their other bad habit.
