Today’s business travellers, especially millennials, have been embracing the “bleisure” trend more than ever.
Combining business travel with leisure travel could lead to more satisfied employees – according to one study, 78% of employees interviewed asserted that by adding on a few personal days to a business trip, the professional assignment became more rewarding.
Adding work-free days into business travel can be beneficial and add value to work assignments, allowing employees a chance to recharge while away as well as have authentic cultural experiences.
Below are some of the best hotels in New York City that are perfectly suited for a bleisure trip.
