With out-of-towners wading in for meetings and many locals still seeking respite from the home office, it’s high time we examine London’s business hotels. And who better to check them out than the Exec Club’s very own worker bees? Here, six deadline-strapped Members let us know if they really can get the job done…
1. YOTEL London, Clerkenwell
Who’s checking in: Hannah Ralph, editor of The Club
Best place to work: On the bar at Komyuniti – the hotel’s quiet but welcoming social space. Order a coffee (you can also fetch one from the grab-and-go station) and get cracking. Once you’re done, rally the workmates to join you for £6 cocktails available between 5-7pm Monday to Friday.
Best room: They’re all spotless and furiously functional, but you want the VIP suite, the biggest, which has a desk. Plus, from £186 a night, it costs a fraction of the typical city centre rates.
Tech credentials: Wi-Fi runs with a spaceship-esque efficiency and the 24/7 self-service screens are a breeze. TVs come with Chromecast and even the beds are smarter than average – adjustable with the press of a button.
