Top Hotels for Poughkeepsie Business Trips

hudson valley hotelsPoughkeepsie’s proximity to places such as Vassar College and IBM make it a popular stop for overnight stays. If your trip is for business, then you will find plenty of solid hotels that can fulfill your needs to get work done on the go: free Wi-Fi, convenient location, and on-site business centers and meeting rooms. Below is a list of executive hotels (and one non-executive hotel, just in case you want to take a break from that world).

Poughkeepsie Grand

One of the nicest hotels in town, the Poughkeepsie Grand offers each guests a complimentary breakfast, free Wi-Fi, and free copies of USA Today. Especially welcoming to road warriors are the Executive Grand Rooms. These special rooms hold everything a business person may need. High density lamps provide plenty of light for work done in the evening, while the stock of office supplies will let you keep working, even without the convenience of your home office. 

Best Western Plus the Inn & Suites at the Falls

This hotel has all the basic amenities an executive might need during a brief business trip. Free Internet access, complimentary breakfast, and an exercise center provide all the convenience needed of a trip. The stream and waterfall right next to the hotel also make for a scenic view to wake up to in the morning. Businesses nearby include IBM and Time Warner, and if you have free time on your hands, attractions such as the Historic Joseph Horton House and the Bardavon Opera House are nearby.

Copper Penny Inn

Technically, this hotel is better for weekend vacations than business trips. But perhaps you can afford to stay at a place where you don’t need Wi-Fi, or you just want to take a break from the usual business hotel accommodations. In which case, Copper Penny Inn may be the perfect place for you. This B&B provides a refreshing atmosphere when you need to stay somewhere a little different. There may not be a fitness center, but as a guest there, you’ll get other nice perks like cookies pulled fresh out of the oven, comfortable and homey rooms, and a delicious breakfast each morning.

Hampton Inn & Suites

Whether you need to get work done on your own or with a group, the Hampton Inn can be what you need. The business center here is a good place to hold group meetings. If you just need to get work done on your own time, however, each room has free wireless. Knowing that several of its guests are on the go, the hotel also offers a Hampton On the Run® Breakfast Bag, for mornings when you’re on a tight schedule. When you’re off the clock for the day, the fitness center will help you relieve the day’s stressors, and after your workout you can take a dip in the pool.

Residence Inn

If you need to be just a stone’s throw away from IBM, look no further than Residence Inn, which is located right across from the company’s Poughkeepsie outpost. Besides that convenience, the hotel has all the fixings of a good business hotel, including Internet access and a business center. If you’re feeling a bit isolated, the hotel also hosts social hours in the evening so guests can mix, mingle, and feel more welcome. If your stay will be on the longer side, you can also reserve a suite so you can enjoy all the comforts of a bedroom, plus a full kitchen.

Once you’ve picked the right hotel, you’ll also need to consider how you’ll get around during your trip. Driving a rental car is a recipe for stress and headaches, and hiring a cab to ferry you around won’t be good for your productivity. Have a car service take you wherever you need to go. You won’t have to drive or ride in an uncomfortable environment, meaning you’ll have even more time to get work done while you’re on the road—literally.
