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.
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.
