Business Friendly States
January 25, 2010 | Permalink
Highlights from a recent report by Development Counselors International on states with a favorable business environment are revealing. One of the important findings of this report is that amount of business travel is a key influencer on where to locate new business operations. Another, clearly related, focus of the report was to rank states based on their business-friendly environment.
Ranked from first to third by business development executives are: Texas, North Carolina and Georgia. These are no surprise to Road Warrior since Extended Stay Hotels, a frequent choice for business travelers, has over 130 properties in these three states alone.
Beyond their attraction for business, each state has great attractions that make business travel as enjoyable as it is profitable. Texas, for example, has two huge cities and plenty of fun smaller towns. Extended Stay Hotels has nearly 70 hotels in 11 Texas cities.
Houston, that state’s largest city, may have 25 Fortune 500 companies, but it is also home to amazing sightseeing attractions like the Johnson Space Center and a Theater District that is second only to New York City.
North Carolina is not only one of America’s major banking centers, it also is a thriving agricultural state. Tourists love North Carolina and have made it the sixth most visited state in the Union. This state has it all, from a magnificent coast with beautiful barrier islands to the majestic Great Smoky Mountains. With 33 hotels in eight North Carolina cities, Extended Stay Hotels is well represented here.
Known for luscious peaches, Georgia is full of wonderful places to see and things to do. Be adventurous and take a boat tour of the Okefenokee Swamp, immerse yourself in colonial history in Savannah or tour Atlanta, one of the most exciting cities in the Southeast. You will not lack for comfort and economy in Georgia since Extended Stay Hotels operates 29 hotels in Georgia’s four major cities.
Whether you will be traveling to these hot business markets or elsewhere in the United States or Canada, Extended Stay Hotels is your best place for large, comfortable accommodations are bargain prices.
