Corporate Housing Makes Relocation Easier and More Cost-Effective
When you have to relocate to another house, city, or the other side of the country corporate housing is a great solution. This is an exciting, but stressful time in your life. You’re going to get to make new friends in your new city with a new job. Awesome! You aren’t going to have the time, though, to find that ideal place to live – be it an apartment, house, or condo – before you get to your new destination and start your position. Don’t worry. HomeStyle Suites offers all the comforts of home less than traditional hotel stays.
What are Corporate Apartments?
Employers love alternative housing options for their employees short-term housing needs. Individuals may request furnished corporate apartments when they have to relocate for their job in a short amount of time or are working on a longer-term project that requires them to be in a different city where they won’t be taking up residence. Corporate housing can also help accommodate interns.
The average length of stay for residents in housing is about two to three months. Some housing communities may require a minimum stay of 30 days. HomeStyle Suites’ average stay for corporate housing is 70 nights.
Corporate Housing vs. Extended-Stay Hotel?
Corporate Housing is a better alternative housing option. Firstly, Corporate housing can be a short-term or long-term solution. Secondly, they are located in apartment/townhome communities rather than being in higher-traffic areas, like some extended-stay hotels.
One of the main differentiators of staying in alternative housing versus an extended-stay hotel is the all-inclusive factor. Corporate apartments come completely furnished. All utilities are paid including: cable, internet, and electricity – just like a hotel. We offer more square footage to spread out. We offer separate rooms for relaxing, slumbering. That makes it feel more like home. Kitchens in extended-stay hotels tend to be kitchenettes with the very basics, while corporate apartments are full-size spaces with pantries and full-size washer/dryers.
Corporate housing also allows for longer stays with pets. Many extended-stay hotels will not allow pets – or will allow just one. While corporate housing can extend to a full year, as a result, extended-stay hotels usually don’t surpass one month stays.
Within a residential apartment community, you’re going to get a fully furnished apartment. This includes a washer and dryer, kitchen, and separate living and sleeping spaces. For almost the same price that you would spend on a hotel, you can get an apartment.
What are the Benefits of Corporate Housing?
HomeStyle Suites’ corporate housing is nestled within a typical residential apartment complex. The communities we partner with set aside several units that are used for short-term residents who agree to be just as good of neighbors as if they signed a lease there full time.
Why does this matter? Living in a corporate apartment allows you to immerse yourself in a community where stability is a constant. A hotel’s guests are more transient. You won’t have the same opportunity to connect and interact with its visitors. HomeStyle Suites runs a criminal background check on all guests. Anyone can stay at a hotel!
This alternative helps you become ingrained in the community. You can talk to the residents and ask questions like, ‘Where are the best schools?’ or ‘Where can my kid join a soccer team?’ This helps people really live within that city.
Corporate apartments offer additional perks including well-appointed fitness centers, shopping centers, pools, and/or nearby trails for hiking or biking.
People can live their lives in a corporate apartment the same way they would have been living at home. A hotel is just not as comfortable and doesn’t have that same community feel.
