1. Location: When visiting a new city for business travel or relocating temporarily, location is one of the most important considerations. Make sure to choose a location that is close in proximity to nearby restaurants, grocery stores and of course your office. The best strategy for finding the perfect temporary housing location should allow for a minimal commute and a variety of nearby activities and attractions.
2. Customer Service: To make your stay truly enjoyable and hassle free, be sure you are working with a corporate housing team that is experienced and service oriented. The staff should be friendly, helpful, and possess a wealth of knowledge about the city you are staying in. Do they live in that city? Do they know the area? Ask these kind of questions to insure the best experience. Another must is a 24 hour emergency response line to handle after hour emergencies and maintenance needs.
3. Amenities: One of the perks of corporate lodging is the abundance of amenities. New, luxury communities feature fully furnished apartments with natural light, modern design, and tasteful decor. Fully stocked kitchens with all needed appliances, utensils, dishes and cookware. A resort style pool, BBQ area, state of the art workout room, dog washing stations, coffee bar, club rooms just to name a few. Many also offer business centers, which are ideal for collaboration with coworkers. The latest trend is luxury apartment living within a multi-use building. this means typically the ground floor of the building is filled with restaurants, shops and maybe even a grocery store. This is a great way to have everything you need all in one place.
