When I go to a conference or meeting, the most important things are free wifi, food, and comfortable chairs, because most of the time we stay a much time there.

In my personal experience, having a screen is the most important for a conference or meeting. A screen is effective to get an attention when you make a presentation in front of majority. So, I would definitely ask a hotel if they have it or not.
