A room that multitasks: The conference suite at Sheraton Suites Plantation, Ft. Lauderdale West.

By Mara Tilen

We get it. Spending your work week in hotel rooms can get monotonous after a while, but look at the bright side: Sometimes that hotel room is a gateway to a cheap vacation. Case in point: South Florida, a sunny, affordable destination that begs to be explored when the client meetings are said and done. With a thriving nightlife scene, serene spas and a 600,000-square-foot convention center, you’ll feel that much more productive in beautiful surroundings.

One of my favorite business hotels is the Sheraton Suites Plantation, Ft LauderdaleWest. Centrally located and within minutes of corporate offices, local attractions, beaches, shopping, entertainment and recreation, it’s the expense-account traveler’s excuse to unwind post-presentation. Think heated outdoor pool, whirlpool and sauna.

And not that we would encourage this, but hey, we’re guilty of bringing work home, too: The hotel boasts a  conference room suite – complete with a meeting space for 6 people on side, and a king bed on the other. Part room, part meeting space, it cuts out the travel time, and offers that extra few minutes to prep that proposal.

Just make sure that you at least partially make the bed.
