Top 20 Best Business Hotels in Asia

The line separating resorts and business hotels was once as dark. Resorts put their dollars into spas, manicured grounds, and luxurious furnishings, and business properties weren’t homes-away-from-home so much as branches of the home office. Fax machines, direct-dial long distance and, later, working modems and business centers with computer access gave a place bragging rights, along with conference space with video screens and a concierge who knew the local restaurants and gave precise directions.

These days, everyone carries a branch office in their laptop, if not their breast pocket. Executives are far more likely to write a memo poolside than in a business center, iPhones and GPS devices have largely eliminated the need to ask anyone about anything. If your business hotel now resembles a vacation hideaway, it’s because pampering is the new business amenity, a way for even mid-range properties to distinguish themselves in a category that seems to offer travelers better options each year. These best business hotels will all make it happen.
