From coast to coast, hotels are hooking millennial business travelers with funky furniture, rooftop patios, state-of-the-art fitness studios and, of course, Instagram-worthy photo ops.
Crowne Plaza HY36 Midtown Manhattan
New York City, New York
Smack dab in the up-and-coming Hudson Yards neighborhood, Crowne Plaza HY36 Midtown Manhattan offers modern meeting spaces, Peloton bikes, an on-site beer garden (check out the graffiti wall art) and much more. Plus, the Vessel building—a go-to photo spot for NYC’s influencers—is steps away.
The Spectator Hotel
Charleston, South Carolina
This swanky hotel may look like it’s all play and no work, but The Spectator Hotel means business, too. The bar, for example, welcomes worker bees to pull up a plush velvet seat prior to its 4 p.m. opening. Not to mention, the hotel is the only one in the area to offer personal butler service, so you can have your clothes unpacked, pressed and ready just in time for your next meeting.
Canopy by Hilton Atlanta Midtown
Featuring ample meeting space and a business center, as well as vibrant design, healthy treats and a pet-friendly policy, Canopy by Hilton Atlanta Midtown is the total package for millennials in town for business. Tip: Snag one of the complimentary bikes outside and ride down to the scenic Piedmont Park, less than 2 miles from the property.
W South Beach
Meetings are made better in a space with an ocean view (obviously), which is just one perk of staying at W South Beach, where nearly 15,000 square feet of meeting space and a teambuilding program, dubbed Recess, are balanced with a WET outdoor heated pool and on-property WALL Lounge to ensure guests get a healthy dose of play to go with their work.
The Hoxton, Chicago
From the rooftop pool and speakeasy-like bar to the modern guest rooms and design-driven restaurants, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a spot you don’t want to snap a picture of inside The Hoxton, Chicago. Thanks to The Apartment, the hotel’s dedicated meeting space that feels more like your own home, a selection of five rooms are yours for the reserving when it’s time to get down to business. Or, score a day pass at nearby Working From, the new working space by The Hoxton. Open studios, library desks, lounge areas, an outdoor terrace, wellness room and coffee bar make the one-of-a-kind space a sanctuary for productivity.
Virgin Hotel, Dallas
Fresh on Dallas’ hospitality scene is the Virgin Hotel, Dallas, which made its debut in December 2019. Communal workspaces (pay a visit to the Funny Library) and spacious meeting rooms (the Rushmore room being a top choice for its nearly floor-to-ceiling windows) provide a funky setting to check things off your to-do list. Instagram photo op alert: The Commons Club cocktail bar sports a suspended red seat in front of neon signage that reads “Hello Jealous.”
Kimpton Hotel Monaco Denver
Nightly wine hours, complimentary five-minute chair massages in the on-site VEDA Salon & Spa and notable nearby street art for securing a #NewProfilePic are just a few bonuses of booking a room at the ever-stylish Kimpton Hotel Monaco Denver. Did we mention the Puppies and Prosecco package? Perfect for groups, the hotel will bring a bottle of bubbly and a bundle of adoptable dogs from Lifeline Puppy Rescue to your room for an hour.
Even Hotel Seattle Downtown - Lake Union
At Even Hotel Seattle Downtown - Lake Union, health and fitness are the names of the game, with in-room exercise equipment (think a yoga mat and blocks, a stability ball and resistance bands), organic fare at the in-house restaurant Cork & Kale, stand-up workspaces and more. An added perk is the location. Must-see Seattle sites—like Pike Place Market and the Museum of Pop Culture—are right around the corner.
Moxy San Diego Downtown/Gaslamp Quarter
You know it’s going to be a good stay when the check-in counter is at the bar—or the mobile bar cart, brought out during busier hours. After you grab your drink and drop your bags, take advantage of the lobby’s game selection, including giant Jenga, shuffleboard, classic board games and more. (Nothing says team bonding like a little friendly competition.) Plus, an oversized neon sign that reads “If you love me let me know” practically beckons an Instagram post. Be sure to tag Moxy San Diego Downtown/Gaslamp Quarter.
The Westin Los Angeles Airport
The Westin Los Angeles Airport includes an on-site surf concierge that can get you set up with the Surf Lesson package to get you acquainted to life on the West Coast. For those seeking to stick to their more traditional workout routine while away on business, the Peloton Guest Room comes with one of the state-of-the-art bikes inside the space. When the time comes to get back to work, 34 event and meeting rooms, in addition to a FedEx Office Print & Ship Center on the second floor, allows for seamless productivity in a sophisticated setting.
