It seems nearly every hotel in San Francisco has amenities designed for the business traveler these days, from conference rooms and AV services to Wi-Fi and lounges ideal for mingling. But there are a few places that take things to another level.

Hotel Zetta, which debuted in early 2013, is a great place working and playing, thanks to oversized desks in each room, Apple computers in the public area, three high-tech meeting rooms, and spaces with corkboard walls ideal for brainstorming sessions. The best is the 1,672-square-foot Play Lounge, which offers a mix of traditional meeting space plus a shuffleboard court, seating areas with Mac computers and flat-screen TVs and a British phone booth where you can Skype.

 Cypress Hotel in Cupertino offers more meeting space than most other Silicon Valley hotels — 5,500 square feet to be exact.  It also features a 24-hour business center with Mac and PC computers, copier and printer; complimentary Wi-Fi for members of the Kimpton’s free InTouch loyalty program; small suites that can host intimate business meetings; and hosted wine hours that are great for post-meeting mingling.

San Francisco Marriott Marquis is one of the most popular business hotels in San Francisco. Besides an ideal location near Union Square, it boasts 59 meeting rooms and a massive Yerba Buena Ballroom with seating for 5,500 people. With a total of 117,000 square feet of meeting space, PSAV presentation services and wonderful views of the city and coastline, it’s hard to imagine not having a successful business event here.
