Traveling for business is decidedly different than travel for pleasure, but with the five posh hotels we’ve rounded up, who says you can’t have the best of both worlds? The chic atmosphere at Four Seasons Hong Kong‘s Blue Bar makes it a hot spot for an after-work cocktail or two while £10 at Montage Beverly Hills is the premium whisky-kissed destination for savvy business travelers and a popular meeting location for film industry pros. If you’d rather lavish in private after a long day, Trump International Hotel & Tower New York not only will have a custom-stocked kitchen in your suite when you arrive, you’ll also be treated to 24-hour in-room dining from world-renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s signature restaurant Jean Georges. ARIA Resort & Casino is a high-tech haven sporting touch-screen controls for virtually every aspect of your comfort —lighting, temperature, video systems, drapes— and it offers on-the-go check-out options via email, text or right from your room’s TV screen. Last but certainly not least is The Peninsula Chicago, located in the heart of the Windy City on ritzy Michigan Avenue. Full-service work stations with scan, copy and fax abilities are included in every room and the business and financial districts are practically next door.
