Executive Travel pulls back the velvet curtain to learn the secrets of hoteliers.

Even the most battle-hardened business traveler will admit that while there may be no place like home, the right hotel can make a pretty fine substitute. Whether a reinvigorated landmark, newly opened outpost or plucky boutique concept, the hotels that manage to stand out in an increasingly competitive global market do so by constantly tweaking the tried-and-true recipe for good-old-fashioned hospitality. And what, you might ask, is the proverbial secret sauce? We canvassed a range of properties—from Tokyo to Taipei, New York to New Delhi—to find out how hotels worldwide are wooing and winning the loyalty of today’s business travelers. Learn their secrets and you’ll be a savvier guest.
