The Spires feature in IoD magazine

Directors Suites are the business choice

We all know the frustrations of trying to work from a tiny hotel bedroom, where the only decent work surface is often the bed itself. If there is a desk it is often little more than the size of the room service menu!

No wonder increasing numbers of business travellers are opting for serviced suites. Now, to mark its 15 years in serviced suites, The Spires have introduced their ultimate business accommodation – the Directors Suite.

In addition to the usual bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom, The Spires Directors Suites have a separate room equipped as an office, complete with a full-sized desk, free wireless Internet, plus printer and stationery.

“Our business guests tell us that the big benefit of a serviced suite, compared to a hotel room, is that there is space to work and even to invite business colleagues to meetings,” explains Margaret Beattie, The Spires’ Managing Director.

“We find that guests are appreciating that suites offer real value for money,” Margaret continues. “With the two-bedroom suites, business colleagues can share a suite – cutting the costs significantly.”

Serviced suites, are of course, also perfect for leisure breaks as well.

The one-bedroom suites cater for the weekend break for two, while the two-bedroom, or two-bedroom deluxe suites can accommodate a whole family of up to six people. It also provides all the accommodation they need – living room, bathroom (two bathrooms in the deluxe suites), fully-fitted kitchen and the bedrooms.

At all three locations, guests at The Spires have all the services of an on-site reception with 24-hour duty manager. But, freedom from the hotel regime is one of the benefits often quoted by guests. Each serviced suite has its own front door and guests can come and go as they please.
While they can have a continental breakfast served in their suite, guests can go out for meals, have food delivered or use the fully-equipped dining kitchen to prepare their own meals and snacks.

They can even place a supermarket order online to be delivered to the reception. Staff will unpack the groceries into the fridge and kitchen cabinets ready for arrival.
