Staying on a hotel's club floor usually means free food and access to a private bar. But many hotels are redesigning their club levels to lure business travelers, and amenities go well beyond trail mix and cocktails.

FIVE STARS: RITZ-CARLTON

Most Ritz properties have club floors with dedicated concierges and workstations with computers, printers, and fax machines. The San Francisco club level has a business center with meeting rooms. At the Ritz on Central Park West in New York City, guests can have a butler unpack and pack their luggage.
ADDITIONAL COST: About $100 a night

FOUR STARS: INTERCONTINENTAL

The InterContinental hotels in Atlanta and San Francisco have club areas with business centers, free Wi-Fi, a large selection of international newspapers and magazines, private check-in and checkout, and a separate concierge.
ADDITIONAL COST: $50 a night in Atlanta; $100 a night in San Francisco

THREE STARS: SHERATON

The club floor in the Chicago Sheraton has PC and Mac workstations, free office supplies, and a massage chair for weary travelers. The club floor at the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers offers priority check-in and a swank lounge with sweeping views of Midtown for entertaining clients in style.
ADDITIONAL COST: $20 to $100 a night
