When traveling to other cities for work or vacation, the last thing you may want to do is stay in a hotel. This is particularly true if you plan to spend weeks or months in those cities. After all, hotels aren’t exactly the most comfortable living spaces to stay in over an extended period of time. Fortunately, corporate housing is an alternative to hotels that overcomes many of the drawbacks of hotel rooms, according to business expert Brian Ferdinand in a recently released article. Still, it does have a few drawbacks itself. Let’s take a peek at the many pros and cons of corporate housing.
Corporate Housing Pros
In the recently published article, Brian Ferdinand, who is the managing partner of CorpHousing Group, emphasizes thatcorporate housing stands out for being extremely comfortable. When you book a corporate housing unit, you can work all day out in the city and then come home to a place that actually feels like home. For instance, you can lounge on the couch or bed to watch television, or you can enjoy some sips of wine at a full-size kitchen table.
Corporate housing is also popular among travelers because it is private and spacious. This means you’ll have plenty of room to take telephone calls, work, and simply live from one day to the next.
In a corporate housing unit, you’ll additionally have the tools you need to create your favorite home-cooked meals, including pans, pots, utensils, a refrigerator, and a stove/oven. That means you don’t have to rely on local diners and fast-food restaurants to feed you. This will significantly benefit both your wallet and your waistline.
With corporate housing, you furthermore have the option of having your space cleaned on a daily basis—just as you would in a hotel room. And just like in a hotel room, you’ll have convenient access to a city’s central area, so getting around should be a breeze.
Corporate Housing Cons
Fortunately, corporate housing does not have many cons. However, there are some drawbacks worth considering before you travel.
For instance, with regard to the location of your corporate housing unit, you may have fewer choices than you would with hotels. However, you will most likely find units in the business-centric areas of the cities you plan to visit.
In addition, corporate housing may cost a bit more than a traditional unfurnished apartment would. However, the additional cost is worth it if you would prefer lodging that comes with amenities, furniture, and beds for your convenience and comfort.
