When people think of bed and breakfasts, they often concentrate only on the amenities that such a business could provide that are similar to those to be found in one's own home. Typically well known bed and breakfast amenities include a hot breakfast, clean linens, private bathrooms, sometimes even a pool! - in other words, nothing too extravagant or different than what you might expect to find in average home.
For this reason, the option of staying at a bed and breakfast is often overlooked
by those travelling for business purposes. After all, they are great places
to stay, but can a hotel offer a room as well as all the extra amenities
that may be needed as well as the cozy home away from home feeling?
Well, one little known fact about these accommodation options is that they
have evolved and most include all the amenities a hotel could offer to the business
client. In fact, thanks to technology and expanding clientele outlooks, most
bed and breakfast businesses include options that help serve a variety of business
needs, and still with a lower cost and a more personable atmosphere than one
might find in a chain hotel such as Hilton Hotels & Resorts
For example, a lot of bed and breakfast establishments can offer those on business
trips a room that can be used for business meetings. Don't forget that
these businesses are homes as well, with rooms serving purposes beyond a place
to get a good night's rest. A lot of bed and breakfasts include private
rooms and even decks where one can conduct interviews, conference calls, even
multi-media presentations at a lower cost than could be expected for a conference
room in a big hotel.
Most bed and breakfasts also include wireless Internet. This can be incredibly
useful when you want to check emails, update your business profile, and so on. Much better than sitting in the small internet cubicle at a big hotel.
Well appointed gardens and large rooms can also mean that bed and breakfasts
make great options as far as wedding facilities. A B&B can offer a place for ceremony, reception, photos, and even
rooms for the first night of the honeymoon as well as for guests!
Whether you are an executive on a business trip or a travelling caregiver,
a bed and breakfasts can have amenities which may surprise you. You can
find all you need from a hotel with the comforts of home besides!
