Business travellers rate expensive hotels

Business travellers love staying in expensive hotels.

It has been revealed that one in four of the 2000 people surveyed loved being able to stay in a hotel they might have not stayed in otherwise.

Heading away for business also has benefits for the company too, as it helps to make face-to-face contact with someone and also helps to increase revenue.

And one third of those polled like the idea of being able to explore a new place they haven't visited before and also discovering new cultures, the study by Leeds' official conference bureau, ConferenceLeeds, found.

Claire Heap, Head of ConferenceLeeds, said: "Our research comes as a shock, especially as we live in such a tech savvy world. It is clear that business people love getting out of the office, as our study found that half of business travellers wish they could travel even more than they currently do. There are so many Instagrammable places across the country to take advantage of, with landmarks and unique destinations in cities across the UK. Leeds is full of great spots to snap, from Leeds Corn Exchange, a Grade I Victorian building, through to Belgrave Music Hall and Canteens' impressive roof terrace - no need to be camera shy!"
