If you're a weary business traveler in the midst of a long journey, the odds are you want to end up at any one of Peninsula Hotels' 10 locations.

That's based on the results of the second annual reader survey conducted by Fortune and Travel + Leisure. Road warriors were asked to rate their favorite hotel brands on the quality of various factors, including customer service, room design and amenities, business and meeting facilities, value, and loyalty programs.

Peninsula, a Hong Kong-based luxury chain, took home the overall No. 1 spot in 2015, but faced stiff competition from the likes of Shangri-La, Mandarin Oriental and others. 

In addition to complimentary Wi-Fi and 24/7 gym and business center access, select Peninsula properties offer unique perks for business travelers, including relaxing spa treatments, bedside panels for adjusting lighting and ordering room service as well as the ultra-convenient anytime check-in.

Without further ado, here's how the overall top 10 rank for 2015:

1. Peninsula

2. Shangri-La

3. Mandarin Oriental

4. Four Seasons

5. Park Hyatt

6. Conrad Hotels and Resorts

7. The Luxury Collection

8. Ritz-Carlton

9. St. Regis

10. Leading Hotels of the World

While Peninsula was recognized by readers for having the best room design and amenities, Shangri-La topped the customer service category, edging out second place Mandarin Oriental.

Four Seasons boasts the top business and meeting facilities, according to survey respondents, followed by Ritz-Carlton and Gaylord. Meanwhile, Park Hyatt received the crown for value. It's worth noting that neither Peninsula nor Mandarin Oriental finished in the top 10 in either of those two categories. 

Lastly, Fairmont President's Club received the nod for the best loyalty program, with Starwood Preferred Guest and Leading Hotels of the World rounding out the top three.

Although the rankings may differ by category, it's safe to say that each brand to be recognized has something to offer business travelers eyeing a place to work and recharge.
