Business Travelers (female)

An interesting story on BBC this morning. More than 40% of biz travelers are female (I haven't double-checked that number) and hotels are trying to better serve these travelers.

One of the big issues is dining options. Apparently, more women than men do not like to eat or drink alone. The alternative, when travelling alone, is room service. But the room service menu is usually very limited. I have to agree with this completely, based on my own experiences. Getting a healthy and tasty meal is hard enough when travelling, and almost impossible from a room service menu.
