Why Long-term Stay Hotels Are Better for Business Travelers [Updated 2023]
Whether you are a high-level executive, budding entrepreneur or an average employee, chances are that you have had to travel to another city, country or continent for a work-related matter. From closing million-dollar deals to overseeing the launch of a new office, there is no shortage of reasons for business travel. And with globalization becoming more prominent in the modern era, companies are no longer restricted only to their corner of the world. Businesses big and small across every industry can now branch out and make a name for themselves in the international markets.
Traditionally, a room booked in a central hotel would be your stay when on a corporate trip. Today, however, business travellers are spoilt for choice with short-term house rentals and Airbnb accommodations readily available to them for the duration of their stay. These options are preferable to a standard hotel room for many reasons – it is more comfortable, spacious and homey – but they lose out on all the exclusive services and amenities that luxury hotels have on offer, including room service, onsite gym and daily cleaning.
Fortunately, there is an option that provides the best of both worlds. Hotel apartments are ideal for a long-term stay and promise comfortable home-away-from-home living while still offering the luxury services and top-tier amenities that you expect when booking in at an upscale hotel.
Let’s take a closer look at the reasons why long-term stay hotels are better for business travellers than any other type of travel accommodation:
There is no better place to unwind and relax after a hard day’s work than in the comfort of your house. It is your personal space where you are free to eat what you want, be as loud as you want and do whatever you want without having to worry about bothering other people. You won’t get that kind of freedom in a standard hotel room.
Avoid the feeling of being homesick when on long business trips by staying in a hotel apartment. Long-term hotels blend all the comforts of home with the best parts of a hotel room. You will still get to experience the luxuries of a soft king-sized bed, bathtub and stunning city views with the added benefits of a proper home entertainment system for watching all your favourite shows after work and a private kitchenette for cooking homemade meals when dining out is no longer appealing.
Great for Business Meetings
You are here to conduct business, after all, so why not make it extra convenient for yourself and host your meetings in your hotel apartment? Not only are the apartments elegant, quiet, private and spacious, but the hotel itself may provide free parking and multiple room layouts that provide ideal seating options. You are also able to prepare meals or serve drinks from the kitchenette while your guests sit back and relax. Plus, hotel apartments are typically centrally located for ease of access to city centres and business districts. This will save you time and money as your important business meetings will be within arm’s reach.
More Space, More Productivity
Traditional hotel rooms are not known for their space as they are designed for short-term stays. This can prove to be a problem when you are planning to be away for a significant amount of time. Living and working in a cramped space will eventually be too uncomfortable and frustrating to handle. Hotel apartments are designed to act as a second home and therefore are spacious enough to accommodate you for a long-term stay.
Hotel apartments are also better for your productivity. Here, you have the benefit of setting up a large workspace with a reliable internet connection and plenty of room to stretch out while still having a separate area for relaxation when on breaks. Working in a cramped hotel room will only turn into a stressful situation, but when in a hotel apartment, you will have the advantage to remain productive and to focus on your business goals.
Flexibility & Convenience
Hotel apartments offer far more competitive rates, fewer surcharges and more flexibility in cancellation policies than those of hotels. They are the more sensible option for business travellers as they offer more benefits for less money.
Full Hotel Treatment
Staying at a hotel apartment will make your long-term business trip feel like home. But that’s not the best part – you will also be able to enjoy all the facilities and services offered by a luxury hotel. Take a dip in the swimming pool, eat meals at the onsite restaurant, order room service, let in the daily maid service and more – just as you would when staying in a standard hotel room. The only difference between the two is that you will be extra comfortable and have a lot more space to enjoy it all.
