What is Corporate Housing?
Corporate Housing is a niche segment of the lodging industry and goes by many different names such as temporary housing, furnished apartments, short term housing, serviced apartments, extended stay housing, and many others depending on where in the world you may be from. While corporate housing goes by many names, the Corporate Housing Providers Association has defined it as the following:
"A furnished residential apartment, home, or condominium available for rent on a temporary basis, primarily for 30 days or longer. Corporate Housing is typically located within residential communities and includes all furnishings, fully equipped kitchens, a private bath, linens, housewares, electronics and utilities. Professional provider companies manage all the details for a client/guest, most often at one all inclusive cost."
A typical corporate housing unit is:
- A well maintained property providing residential living.
- Double or triple the square footage of hotel rooms and suite hotels.
- Located in a convenient location in and around major metropolitan areas.
- A fully furnished and equipped studio, one, two or three bedroom apartment.
- A more cost effective accommodation alternative for travelers needing long term stays.
It’s the little things in life that matter—especially when you’re away from home. At Avenida Suites, we go above and beyond to guarantee that our properties provide guests with all the conveniences and comforts of home.
The typical corporate housing suite provided by Avenida contains the following items in each space, although the offering may be slightly different based upon the given market.
