Earlier this month we told you about the green spa at the coming-soon Ritz-Carlton Charlotte (set to open Oct. 1!). The latest word from the North Carolina city’s first Ritz? The hotel also claims five “business travel firsts” to help stressed-out, working travelers feel at home.

1. The Nook, located on the hotel’s executive floor, will offer fully equipped, free private offices, complete with desktop computers, printers, office supplies, teleconferencing equipment, Wi-Fi, copy/fax machine access, and even tech help. This is in addition to the hotel’s full 24-hour biz center.

2. The exclusive Travel Lite program, a menu of daily grooming, hygiene, skin and hair care and fragrance essentials, available at check-in and delivered immediately. The “nominally-priced” items may also be pre-ordered via the hotel’s Virtual Concierge Web platform. This one is designed to eliminate the need to fret about pesky TSA rules.

3. Desktop-on-Demand provides delivery of a wireless printer as well as any other office supplies you might need in-room, from staplers and highlighters to disks (er, what is it, 2002?) and keyboards. Guest rooms will all have electronic jack-packs and phone/laptop chargers and adaptors are available upon request.

4. Guests who stay at least four nights per month can opt for Luggage-Less Travel by stashing clothes and personal items at the hotel. Stuff can either be held until the guest’s next arrival or for an added charge, laundered, dry-cleaned and pressed. You can even have your toiletries replenished.

5. And finally, free in-town transportation is available to hotel guests. The icing on the cake? You’ll be chauffeured around town in a hybrid, sticking true to the hotel’s eco-conscious. Or if you’re driving your own hybrid, hotel parking is free.

We're intrigued, but what we really can’t wait for is to hear about these perks in practice.
