Europe's bustling capital cities attract the suit-and-tie set, and the continent's best business hotels cater to business travels with great service, special features, and around-the-clock amenities. Whether you're ironing out the details of a high stakes merger or need to be connected to all four corners of the globe at once, these impressive business hotels are equipped to help with your every need. Sealing the deal in Europe's capital cities has never been easier than at these top business hotels: Before St. James's was a luxurious boutique hotel in London, it had a distinguished past as an exclusive Gentlemen's Club. Previously owned by Sirs Michael Caine and Sean Connery -- and frequented by Winston Churchill and Gregory Peck -- this striking building on a quiet cul-de-sac in prestigious Mayfair now houses lavish accommodations. Rooms offer high-tech perks such as free Wi-Fi and iPod docks. An outstanding feature here is the Michelin-starred restaurant directed by executive chef William Drabble. Business Perks: Business travelers will also enjoy the four high-style meeting rooms with free Wi-Fi, audiovisual equipment, and a bevy of other amenities, including master classes and catering. This historic Parisian building near Champs Elysees -- once a private mansion of Comte de Breteuil -- is now owned by the InterContinental brand. But the property, offering 55 rooms and stylish boutique design by Bruno Borrione, doesn't feel like a chain (although upscale InterContinental hotels rarely do). Well-dressed guests linger in the communal areas, which include a lounge and an outdoor terrace surrounded by potted plants and classic architecture. The attached jazz-themed restaurant serves continental breakfast in the mornings and international gourmet cuisine for lunch and dinner. Rooms are modern and bright, with red accents, black and white ceiling murals, iPod/iPad docks, mini-fridges, coffeemakers, and flat-screen TVs. Business Perks: A number of features were provided with business travelers in mind, including the high-tech meeting space and business corner, which are decorated with hip wall murals and atmospheric lighting. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout. The Estrel is a mammoth conference hotel with 1,125 rooms and suites. This complex also has five restaurants, two bars, a summer garden, and a concert venue with a performance every night. Simple, modern rooms are on the large side and have minibars, flat-screen TVs, and work desks. The hotel has a variety of public spaces, including a spacious lobby, outdoor biergarten, and indoor atrium bar. There is also a well-equipped fitness room and a business center. All of these amenities are part of an effort to make the complex as entertaining as possible, as the Estrel is quite far from the bustle of Berlin's center. Business Perks: The 15,000-square-meter conference center has multiple stages, and the large business center feature work stations and printers. Few Lisbon hotels can compare to the Four Seasons. In addition to the top-notch service the brand is known for, the hotel goes above and beyond with its amenities -- making it a popular choice with the suit-and-tie set. It features a stylish indoor pool, an impressive fitness center with an outdoor running track, a luxurious spa, and great family-friendly perks. Large rooms have classic decor (think: 18th-century replica furnishings and rich fabrics), as well as furnished terraces, flat-screen TVs, stocked minibars, and marble bathrooms. Business Perks: For business travelers, the hotel also provides audiovisual equipment, cell phones, computers, and portable GPS devices, as well as secretarial, translation, and interpretation services. The Radisson Blu offers a lot more than most Roman hotels in terms of amenities. Number one is the large outdoor pool -- pretty much unheard of in this city. It also boasts a small fitness center, a spa, and two decent dining options. But the tradeoff for these perks is that the hotel is located far from the main tourist sites in the neighborhood around the Termini station. For business travelers, though, it could be a good choice, since there's a lot of meeting space and a theater, on top of the restaurants and pool. Business Perks: With multiple conference centers, this hotel is one of the most ideal and stylish places to host an event in Rome. The Shelbourne -- one of Dublin's best-known luxury icons since 1824 -- is also the best business hotel in the Irish capital for hosting meetings, with 12 beautiful meeting rooms, one of which can fit up to 550 guests. Those planning events can make use of the dedicated event team, catering services, and modern technology available in the event spaces. In addition, free Wi-Fi is offered throughout the hotel; the small business center offers computers, printing, and copying servies; and the hotel's hot spot bars are popular for business schmoozing after work. Business Perks: Gorgeous meeting rooms and modern technology are impressive at this grande dame in Dublin. This nautical-themed boutique hotel has a secluded, out-in-the-country feel, although it's only a 10-minute drive from central Stockholm. Though the suburban area of Nacka, one of the city's business hubs featuring numerous convention centers, can be relatively dead at night, the hotel has an excellent waterfront restaurant and is near numerous corporate offices. Rooms have tiny tube TVs, but include perks such as balconies and free Wi-Fi. Business Perks: Well-equipped meeting rooms at the Hotel J look out over Stockholm's beautiful bay. The hotel also can arrange events at its neighbor, Tornvilla, a gorgeous 19th century building with seven floors of conference and meeting rooms, its own jetty, garden, and watchtower (for those super-secret business dealings), as well as at Fabrikorsvilla, a waterside venue more apt for cocktail parties or private dinners. The Sofitel is an upscale property in the heart of the Old Center. The building has a rich history; it has been both a convent, during the 15th century, and a city hall more recently. The 177 rooms are contemporary and homey (though some are on the small side) and feature Nespresso machines, flat-screen TVs, and wonderful beds. Hotel features include a high-end spa with an indoor heated pool, a modern fitness center, and the Bridges Restaurant, with a canal-side garden terrace for dining al fresco. Business Perks: Meeting rooms in this historic hotel are gorgeous, with stained-glass windows and chandeliers. On-site coordinators will assist with gourmet catering and suggest team-building activities around Amsterdam. From the outside, the Melia Madrid looks like your average business hotel. Step inside, however, and you will be surrounded by distinctive details, such as the funky light fixtures, sleek leather couches, and elegant antiques in the airy lobby, that give the interior spaces a modern, artsy vibe. In addition to its unique decor, the Melia offers amenities that are rarities at Madrid hotels, including a small fitness center, indoor pool (fees apply), and a spa (albeit closed on weekends). The real highlight, though, are the spacious rooms with flat-screen TVs, plush beds, red accents, and gorgeous marble bathrooms. Business Perks: The hotel attracts mainly business travelers, as it has a business center, extensive and high-tech event spaces, and a good location near various attractions.
