It’s no secret that thousands of business executives travel coast to coast, every day, on business trips. Many of them are content with their run-of-the-mill hotel, even when the length of stay is long. Without knowing, they think it’s the only option. But the truth is that furnished corporate rentals make more sense – they save money and can offer better amenities all at the same time.
Even with special corporate hotel rates, nothing compares with a private, luxury rental. And in many cases, the amenities and extras are above and beyond anything that a hotel can offer. As a start, a luxury condo rental offers more than just four walls, a queen-sized bed, desk, and chair. The condo has everything that a hotel suite has, but more. And best of all, the total cost is less.
High-end corporate rentals provide everything in a luxurious, private, self-contained unit. From a fully stocked kitchen, to bedding and linens, to en-suite
laundry machines, everything is right at hand, and without additional cost. Even Internet access and cable TV are part of an “all-inclusive” rental
package that delivers real value. Not to mention a comfortable and relaxing environment.
Even the most discriminating company bookkeeper would agree that furnished corporate rentals are more cost effective than the hotel experience. And while
eating out every night might sound glamorous, there’s much to be said for preparing meals at “home” - right in the kitchen. Beyond that, there’s benefit
to having a separate bedroom and living room after a stressful office day.
The beauty of furnished corporate suites is the range of accommodations available, especially for those staying long term. Superior rental units are spacious,
and often come with more than one bedroom. Kitchens are fully equipped with high-end appliances, and with everything from cutlery to cookware. In fact,
reputable rental companies will often provide a “hotline” for any issues.
Many premium rentals also offer weekly cleaning options - for the linens, the bathroom, and the kitchen. Even with the additional cost, these services
can be well worthwhile. Indeed, a busy exec is not remotely interested in doing cleaning after a long day of meetings. These types of extra services
can be arranged in advance, and can be easily built into the budget prior to moving in.
With business travel and accommodations, it’s not always about the cost. Having amenities like a swimming pool or gym can make a big difference for a busy
executive. And a good geographic location can make travel less stressful. Finally, a good neighbourhood can offer lifestyle benefits like shopping and entertainment.
It will all make for a comfortable and relaxing length of stay.
The best suggestion when renting a furnished corporate unit is to deal directly with the company that owns the property. This will ensure the very best
price, as well as personal attention from the owner. And while price negotiating is often needed, the most important is to get good value.
