4 Chicago Hotels Perfect for Business Travelers

These Windy City accommodations make life easier for tired business travelers. 

Business travel is showing no signs of slowing in 2016; in fact, corporate travel spending is set to increase this year.

As travel increases, however, so do its struggles and frustrations. For many businesspeople, the airport, boardroom and conference room are places of strife. If they don’t have reliable ground transportation and a good hotel, that strife can increase.

Speaking of hotels, there are plenty in Chicago that help business travelers immensely.

A business traveler’s hotel should have a number of things, including comforts, business amenities and location. Check out our list of hotels that have all of these features and more.
