If ever there has been a time to focus on business travel it is now. As companies make significant cuts in spending for business travel, business travelers are increasingly being directed to seek low-cost, no-frills alternatives in order to reduce costs. Still, business travel cannot be eliminated altogether and many business hotels are responding to their clients’ tighter budgets by offering reduced rates combined with specialized business services packages. Below are the top four hotels in Dalian that offer the traveling businessperson more “bang” for their travel “buck.”
1) Furama Nanshan Garden Hotel 富丽华南山花园酒店View In Map
With its unique design incorporating a Japanese style garden, location in one of the city center’s remaining quiet residential areas, state-of-the-art meeting spaces, three on-site restaurants and interesting bar scene, the Nanshan Garden Hotel is one of Dalian’s most business friendly and relaxing properties. While there are two classes of rooms for the business traveler (superior and deluxe), both types of rooms offer all the amenities (but not the price) of a five star hotel, including bathrobes, high-speed internet, mini-bar, large work desk and same-day valet cleaning service. Current rates range from $74 to $98 per night if booked online.

2) Ramada Plaza Dalian 大连华美达酒店View In Map
Directly across from the main train station and just a five-minute walk to the city center at Zhongshan Square you can’t ask for a better location than the Ramada Plaza Dalian. The Ramada Plaza is also one of the city’s oldest hotels, having been in operation since the 1980’s, and its age shows in its experience in delivering an outstanding assortment of business travel conveniences – airport shuttle service, 24-hour front desk, baby-sitting and child services, express check-out, concierge desk, Continental breakfast, fitness center and indoor swimming pool. In addition, while all the rooms are set up for you to accomplish all your business needs, including free Internet access and a large working desk, they also house flat screen TVs and large, extra-comfortable beds for you to turn off and tune out work and get down to some serious relaxing. Current rates range from $70 to $75 if booked online.

3) Best Western Premier Dalian Harbour View Hotel 大连海景酒店View In Map
The only aspect “un-businesslike” with the Harbour View Hotel is that you won’t find reception on the ground floor when you enter but rather via an elevator (off to the side) on the 27th floor. However, if you can get used to that minor quirk you will be pleasantly surprised with a hotel that combines tasteful luxury with serious business functionality. On the business side, amenities include internet access in every room (for a small fee), meeting facilities, a comprehensive (if small) business center, airline ticket reservations and a multilingual (Chinese, English and Japanese) staff. On the luxury side, the beautifully appointed, spacious rooms afford plenty of room (54 square meters) and creature comfort that allow for some serious relaxation after a long day including a gorgeous harbor-view, large sumptuous beds, a couch and a well stocked mini-bar. Amenities also include in-room pay per view movies, revolving restaurant, complimentary full breakfast and both indoor and outdoor swimming pools. Current rates range from $93 to $108 if booked online.

4) Inn Fine Hotel 大连银帆宾馆View In Map
The Inn Fine hotel is an oasis for the business traveler that finds himself working or living outside the city proper in the Dalian Economic and Free Trade Zone. With almost 400 rooms it is almost one of Dalian’s largest hotels. Its size offers the business traveler a tantalizing variety of amenities to chose from including: long-term lodging packages, a free car park, eight conference rooms, a well quipped business center with a knowledgeable staff, executive lounge and a recreation center that features a swimming pool, bowling alley and indoor golf. Rooms include free Internet access and plenty of room to set up shop at the large desk/workspace and comfortably focus on work. Current rates range from $94 to $109 if booked online.
