The paper deals with the ranking of Polish cities in terms of tourism services and facilities, with a special attention paid to the business travel segment. Research is based on such criteria as the number of nights spent by foreign tourists, conference facilities and equipment in hotels and the number of medium and high quality hotels and accommo-
dation options. First, a ranking of service and infrastructural quality in Polish regional cities was made and then used as a reference point in comparison to the ranking of global and European cities. In addition, the ranking was contrasted to the socio-economic development of Polish large cities. It was found that Polish cities offering the most developed medium and high standard accommodation base as well as a broad range of services for the conference and business meeting markets ranked also at the top of international rankings. In addition, no direct relationship between population of a city and the number of foreign tourists visiting a city or advancement in the development of the infrastructure and tourist services of these cities was found.
