What is Corporate Housing?

Corporate Housing Makes Relocation Easier and More Cost-Effective

So you landed that dream job of yours and you find yourself moving across the country; how exciting! It’s an opportunity to see new things, find a different perspective, and meet new people! The only thing keeping this from being perfect is you’re short on time and you need to make some living arrangements ASAP!

If you are headed to Amarillo, Lubbock, Midland, Odessa, or anywhere in between; Housing with Homestyle Suites is the best option. Not to mention the most convenient!

What is Corporate Housing?

Corporate housing is a short or long-term housing option. This is usually paid for by an employer rather than an employee. Individuals may request corporate housing 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 corporate housing is about two to three months. Some corporate 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?

Although referred to as corporate housing, these stays are actually in furnished apartments/townhomes, tucked away into communities.

One of the main differentiators of staying in a corporate suite versus an extended-stay hotel is the all-inclusive factor. The units are fully furnished with all utilities. Similar to a hotel, but with more square footage to spread out and extra rooms. This gives it a home away from home feeling, that a hotel simply can’t provide.

This 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, extended-stay hotels usually don’t surpass one-month stays.

This apartment comes fully furnished. 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?

HomeStyle Suites’ units are within an apartment complex. Those communities set aside several units for short-term residents.

So, 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, so you won’t have the same opportunity to connect and interact with its visitors. Apartments require a background check. Anyone can stay at a hotel!

Corporate housing helps you become ingrained in the community. You can talk to the residents and ask questions like, ‘Where are the best schools? ‘Where can my kid join a soccer team?’ This helps people really live within that city.

In addition to being fully furnished, 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.
