Day 1: you wheel all of your bags into your hotel room, flop onto the bed, and feel a rush of excitement as you gear up for your multi-week business trip in a new city. Day 35: you feel as though the hotel walls are closing in on you, and you’re desperate to come up for air. Welcome to the hotel life. The problem with hotel rooms is that they can feel smaller and stuffier over time. However, this isn’t a problem with corporate housing, according to CorpHousing Group Managing Partner Brian Ferdinand in a recently published business travel article.
WHAT IS CORPORATE HOUSING?
The recently published article shares several insights into why corporate housing is becoming increasingly popular for business travelers compared with run-of-the-mill hotels. As a general rule of thumb, corporate housing is ideal for people who are relocating for stints of time that are longer than your usual vacation or business trip, but not permanently.
WHY SHOULD I USE CORPORATE HOUSING?
Corporate housing is an excellent accommodation option for multiple reasons, according to Brian Ferdinand. First, your typical luxury corporate housing unit in an urban area has at least double the space of a traditional hotel room in the exact same vicinity. In these spaces, you can easily find dedicated areas for eating meals, as well as workspaces featuring full desks.
Because these units come with so much space, you can comfortably spend the night in, complete with cooking, eating, lounging around, and binge-watching Netflix. Or, you can order some UberEats or DoorDash, enjoy a delicious and hot meal while you’re spreading out in your living space, and then head out for a fun night out with friends or colleagues.
Corporate housing is also fully furnished, so there’s no need to bring furnishings with you or to buy temporary ones to make your temporary living space feel comfortable. All of the comforts of home will already be there when you arrive.
With corporate housing, you can truly let your hair down and feel free while in your living accommodation. After all, you won’t have to constantly run into other people and navigate crowds as you may in the hotel setting. And you also won’t have to worry about turning down the noise at night, as there will be no “hotel quiet hours” policy to abide by. You can’t ask for a better travel situation in the months and years ahead, according to Brian Ferdinand.
