Your upcoming business trip is just a couple of months away, and you’re working hard to get all of your planning ducks in a row. For starters, you need to find a temporary home in your destination city. According to travel expert Brian Ferdinand in a recently released article, your best option for accommodation during a long-term business trip is corporate housing. Let’s take a look at what corporate housing is and why it’s perfect for the modern business traveler.
WHAT IS CORPORATE HOUSING?
In the recent article, Brian Ferdinand, who is the managing partner of CorpHousing Group, explains that corporate housing units offer luxury, high-end accommodations featuring the amenities you typically enjoy at home. These types of units may range from a single-family house to a condominium or a high-end apartment, and they can be found in residential or urban neighborhoods that are highly desirable. Compared with hotels, including extended-stay ones, corporate housing offers tremendous material advantages and value.
BENEFITS OF CORPORATE HOUSING
Like a furnished apartment, a corporate housing unit comes fully furnished. When you step into one of these units, you’ll be able to tell that both consideration and time were given to the accommodation’s comfort and décor. For instance, in this type of rental unit, you can expect to find all of the flatware, housewares, and cookware you’ll need, so there’s no reason to bring them from home or buy temporary ones during your business stay. These units also come with towels and linens.
Another core benefit of booking a corporate housing unit is that the utilities situation is a breeze to handle. If you book a furnished apartment rather than a corporate housing unit for your business trip, you will likely find that the utilities are in the name of the apartment owner. As a result, you will have to pay the owner directly, and the utilities payments will be on top of your general apartment rental costs. However, with corporate housing, you don’t have to go through these hoops to pay your utility bill.
You’ll also love the fact that with a corporate housing unit, all of your utilities are already activated. The same is true for your wireless internet, cable television, and security system.
Note that a reputable corporate housing provider can additionally work with you to meet any special or unique needs that you may have during your stay. For instance, the company can add extra amenities and be flexible in its furniture choices as needed, including adding a baby crib or ergonomic furniture that will meet your wellness needs.
