Delsuites’ Staff Experience Furnished Apartments First Hand

May 24, 2013

Sometimes having a different perspective on a familiar situation not only makes you rethink how you react but it can also help you make even better decisions. Over the past few weeks, DelSuites staff members have taken part in an initiative that had everyone spending an overnight stay at one of the company’s 13 properties. 

Along with enjoying the quite comforts of the fully furnished suites in Toronto, the staff members were asked to provide critical feedback about their stay including the ease of their check-in to the comfort and quality of the linens. That’s right, staff members even got down and looked under the furniture on the hunt for any lingering dust bunnies.

From the moment she arrived, Accounting Manager, Amanda Yau says she was pleased with the speedy check-in and security measures taken by the staff at Mississauga’s Grand Ovation before releasing her arrival package. But her positive experience didn’t stop there, as Yau says, the impeccably clean suites and comfortable living room furniture were perfect for enjoying the exceptional view. 

In the heart of Toronto’s downtown core, Account Manager Enid Bigornia echoes her colleague’s sentiments with her stay at the ICON.  Her furnished apartment offered a fresh and airy environment that she found relaxing, “the furnished apartment was spacious with nice high ceilings,” says Bigornia. Along with a keen eye for cleanliness, at the Yonge and Eglinton location of Republic, Guest Services Manager, Erin Conaty found the elegant décor of the suites, created a welcoming atmosphere, especially for guests who are new to Toronto.

Beyond the sparking nature of the suites, Alex Wong Manager of Digital Marketing and Interactive Design would visit James Cooper Mansion any time just to be in the hub of the city. With its proximity to shopping venues and restaurants, Wong says this new development hasn’t missed a detail. 

While everyone’s needs and wants are a little different, each of the guests enjoyed their experience and were able to gain some valuable insights; ones that may instill a few changes and tweaks to the services we provide. Whether you enjoyed your stay immensely or have a few suggestions for ways we could improve, we’re always happy to listen, so please feel free to continue to tell us what you think by clicking here.

Kid-Friendly Furnished Apartments in Toronto by Delsuites

May 17, 2013

Kid Friendly Stays in TorontoAs you plan and pack for your family vacation, you go through a lot of effort so that your whole clan will enjoy their trip. By the time you reach your destination you’re all looking forward to enjoying a little extra quality time. Even still, you want to be certain that your children are safe at all times, especially if they are young.

As a parent, it’s reassuring to know that when you’re staying at a Delsuites furnished apartment in Toronto, your family will be in an environment that’s as safe as your own home.  With a few simple adjustments such as cabinet latches, edge guards for tables and outlet safety covers, your fully-furnished suite can instantly be transformed to fit your family’s needs.

When you’re speaking with the Guest Service Team, it’s important to let them know what child-friendly items you may need during your stay. Right from the beginning of your stay, your complimentary airport pick up will be equipped with comfortable CSA-approved child car seats, making your journey a safe and comfortable ride for everyone.

For infant bedtime, cribs and rocking chairs will help parents transition their babies into a new environment while bed rails and water-proof mattress help to ensure that toddlers and older children are sleeping safe and sound. Child-friendly step stools offer your little one the independence they need to brush their teeth and wash their face at bedtime and in the morning. 

Among the other family-friendly services, a professional child minder can also be scheduled should you need in suite child care.

On arrival, each child also receives an age appropriate welcoming gift, a simple touch that offers parents the assurance that you’ve chosen the right home away from home for your family vacation.

Create Personal Space in Your DelSuites Furnished Apartment

April 12, 2013

Whether you’re traveling for work or leisure, sometimes you could use a touch of home. Even if you’re not staying at a hotel, no matter how finely appointed your short-term rental is in downtown Toronto,  it’s the personal touches that turn a house into a home aren’t a part of the design. But while renting means that you can’t paint the walls your favourite shade of purple, here are five simple (and practically instant) solutions for adding a little character into virtually any living space.

Design A Photo Gallery

While short or long term residential living means you probably don’t have your children, partner or pet waiting for you at the end of the day, that doesn’t mean they can’t greet you when you walk through the door. By using your favourite photos, you can create an instant gallery as a focal point in your living room, along a hallway or at the front entrance.  Although a collection of inexpensive frames work well for a table top gallery, if you’re short on surface space, consider using a collection of bright coloured peel-and-stick wall frames.

Awaken  Your Senses

You may not realize it, but familiar smells and sounds can make you feel at home in your downtown Toronto furnished rental, even when you’re not. By incorporating a few scented candles into your space,  you can enjoy the aroHome Suite Homema of freshly baked cookies without turning on the oven. For many of us, music is an integral part of our lives which means that by simply loading your iPod into one of the docking stations in your suite, you can listen to your favourite tunes, should you decide to actually bake those cookies.

Prepare to be Floored

For practical purposes, hardwood flooring adds instant appeal in rental properties but sometimes your toes need something to sink into. Whether it’s a simple mat in front of the kitchen sink or a throw rug at the foot of your bed, accessorizing with small or medium-sized floor coverings in your DelSuites apartment rental space is an easy and low-cost way to add comfort.

Positive Reflection

You don’t have to be an interior designer to realize that reflective surfaces will brighten a room. Whether you choose glass frames or add a mirror in your entrance, the reflective nature of these surfaces means that you’ll instantly add more light to your space, which instantly makes it more inviting. Even if the main living space in your apartment isn’t well illuminated, you can maximize what you do have, by adding accessories that reflect the natural light.

Relax & RechargeSleep Well

When you need to rest your weary head, there’s nothing like having the comfort of your own pillow. Even better, having your own pillow-top mattress pad to cushion your whole body. Although you may not be able to travel with your own pillows and linens from home, it may be worth investing if you’re going to be traveling on a frequent basis.

While the changes may be small, it’s often the little things that add the most impact in your day to day. After all, no matter where you go, having a few familiar comforts of home can bring new life and energy to both you and your space.
