We Americans love our coffee. After all, the average adult guzzles around 70 gallons of coffee a year – and spends over $1,000 annually on morning doses of caffeine.
While the habit can be hard on your wallet, the health benefits of consuming coffee are numerous: Research shows it can reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, and heart disease.
And particularly for business travelers who need to work through the night and then impress clients the next morning – all while recovering from jet lag – a ready cup of Joe is essential.
We’ve found five of the best hotel coffee bars across the states so you can get that jolt you need without having to leave your hotel.
Perks Coffee at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio
A popular business hotel – with amenities such as a full-service FedEx business center and modern meeting rooms – the Grand Hyatt San Antonio also features Perks Coffee, a cute coffee-bar-meets-convenience-store.
Along with coffee, Perks serves up tasty pastries and prepackaged sandwiches and salads, and best of all, it’s open around the clock so you can work through the night.
Knave at Le Parker Meridien
Le Parker Meridien’s coffee bar is about as sexy as they come.
The hotel’s website claims it would be “sacrilege” to venture anywhere else for coffee, and it has a point: The large space has a warm, upscale vibe with red velvet curtains, high, stained-glass ceilings, antique chandeliers, and plush chairs and couches that allow for a fluid shift from daytime coffee bar to afternoon cocktail lounge.
Clients will be impressed by the posh atmosphere, as well as the light menu which features pastries and paninis.
Starbucks Coffee at the Courtyard Seattle Bellevue/Downtown
If eastside convenience is what you’re looking for, the Marriott Courtyard Seattle Bellevue is a solid choice.
And it delivers caffeine convenience as well: The hotel features an on-site Starbucks, so when you’re on-the-go you can simply head downstairs and order up your daily latte or buy a pre-wrapped sandwich.
