Planning a trip to the Los Angeles or San Francisco area and unable to find a hotel that fits both your price range and your standards? Why not look into Corporate Housing? Many people avoid this option, simply because they are either unaware that it exists or what exactly it is. Read on to learn what corporate housing has to offer and for more details on corporate housing options in the LA and San Fran areas.
What is Corporate Housing?
Essentially, corporate housing consists of fully furnished, all inclusive and often luxurious apartments that are normally available by the week and can cost you less than half the price of a hotel room! Corporate housing is perfect for those of you traveling to San Francisco or Los Angeles on temporary business assignments because not only does it offer you a much more spacious accommodation, but most corporate housing options offer all the amenities of home. Corporate housing is also a great option for those of you who are moving from one area of LA or San Francisco to another. These temporary retreats will give you a place to stay during the hectic moving process! Corporate housing allows visitors to make the most of their time away. Whether your traveling alone or with a large group, corporate housing has what you need. These homes-away-from-home are comfortably and tastefully decorated. All of them are located in popular and safe neighborhoods, like Nob Hill or Twin Peaks in San Francisco and along Santa Monica Beach. Many corporate housing facilities offer weekly, monthly and even sometimes daily rentals.
What to Expect from your Corporate House Rental
The amenities in your corporate housing rental, depending on the company, will practically duplicate those of which you have at home. There are corporate housing facilities which offer fully-equipped kitchens, dishwashers and coffeemakers along with complimentary maid services. Many offer outdoor pools for their guest pleasure with furnished sundecks and barbecues. Most offer in-suite fax machines, satellite television, 2 phone lines and high speed internet, perfect for those of you working on the road.
There is also often complimentary reserved parking for your rental car along with a secured entry. If you are traveling alone you may opt to stay in a one bedroom, one bathroom corporate apartment, whereas those of you traveling in a group may wish to reserve a six bedroom, four bathroom rental. Some corporate houses even allow family pets to stay on the premises (breed restrictions apply). All of this is available to customers at prices competitive with those of major hotels and are often cheaper than most luxury accommodations. Sound too good to be true? Well it isn’t!
