DelSuites: the Perfect Housing Option for Film and TV Productions

December 30, 2020
toronto film crew housing

COVID-19 has hit the film and TV industry hard all over the world. In Toronto, many productions were postponed or drastically changed due to the pandemic. 

Luckily, things are slowly starting to pick up again. This means that you and your team may be looking for an affordable, convenient housing solution for your out-of-town team members. 

The Film Industry in Toronto in 2021

After many months of downtime, many productions have started up again. As BlogTO points out, productions now need to work around new COVID-19 health and safety protocols. 

Marguerite Pigott, the Film Commissioner and Director of Entertainment Industries at the City of Toronto, said, “This means that productions frequently need more time, more space and more safety supplies, in addition to having staff appointed to positions that focus on compliance with provincial and production-specific protocols.

So, what does this mean for the industry? It means productions are starting up again, many of which have international casts that will need accommodations.

Temporary Housing for the Cast and Crew from DelSuites

Here at DelSuites, we offer luxurious, affordable temporary condo accommodation for people looking for short-term stays in Toronto and the GTA.

If you are looking for temporary housing for your production team and cast while you shoot your next film in Toronto, here are some of the ways DelSuites can help.

Intensive Cleaning Procedures

We take hygiene precautions incredibly seriously at DelSuites. We are committed to ensuring that all of our guests stay safe and healthy during their stay. 

When bi-weekly is provided, we use intensive bleach-based disinfectant products to ensure that our suites are deep cleaned. 

Convenient Locations

Filming in Toronto can happen just about anywhere. While some productions will use locations in the downtown area, others may need to film in the outskirts of the city. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, you can minimize the amount of time your team spends on public transport by finding an ideal housing option close to your filming locations. We have suites all over the GTA for your convenience. 

Not only are our housing locations convenient for travelling to and from location, they’re also located in some of Toronto’s most exciting areas. This means that your team can enjoy shopping, dining out, and exploring the city during their time off.

That All Important Homely Feel

With many film productions, the team ends up being housed in a hotel for the duration of filming. While hotels are comfortable and clean, they rarely have that homely feel that your team is after. 

If your cast and crew are moving to Toronto for a month or more, they will appreciate having access to the comforts of home. 

Our suites are fully furnished and are incredibly spacious. Choose between our 1,2, or 3 bedroom suites, all of which have room for dining, working remotely, and lounging around during time off. They even have their own high-speed Wi-Fi connections and TVs.

Flexible Start and Finish Dates

While most film and TV productions make their plans well in advance, we understand that plans can change without much notice. If you end up finishing the scenes with several actors early, you can use our flexible end date system to end your contract with us early and send your actors home without paying extra fees in rent. DelSuites just requires 14-days notice to alter or change your dates of stay.

We even offer instant move-in dates if your plans change last minute and you need to bring members of your team to Toronto early. 

Building Amenities

Your team will absolutely love the amenities in some of our condo buildings. Our buildings offer everything from round the clock security to fitness centers, spas, and pools. 

For people on a tight, intensive filming schedule, these extra amenities will be greatly appreciated. Be sure to ask us about which buildings offer the amenities you’re after. 

Fully-Equipped Accommodations

Many actors end up spending money on takeaway and room service when they’re housed in a hotel during a film shoot. With DelSuites accommodations, your team will all have access to their own fully-equipped state-of-the-art kitchens and dining areas. This means they’ll be able to cook their own meals and stay healthy during the shoot.

All of our suites also include washers and dryers, which will prove to be another incredibly useful timesaver.

Need Temporary Housing During an Insurance Claim? DelSuites Can Help

December 23, 2020
temporary housing insurance

No one’s ever prepared for an unexpected emergency. If your home has been damaged or even destroyed by an accident or a natural disaster, you may be eligible to claim temporary housing on your insurance plan. 

DelSuites offers temporary, fully-furnished condo accommodation that is perfect for families who find themselves in need of emergency housing. 

We understand that these times can be traumatic and stressful. Our modern, stylish apartments can make things that much easier. 

So, what makes DelSuites the perfect option for you?

You Can Move In Immediately

One great advantage to our suites is the turnaround time. In most housing emergencies, time is of the essence. 

If you need somewhere to live temporarily, you’re probably eager to move in as soon as possible. With DelSuites, we can get you set up in your new home away from home immediately.

Our Suites Are Located All Over the GTA

Here at DelSuites, we have housing available throughout the entire GTA. Most Torontonians who need urgent accommodation prefer to move somewhere in their own neighbourhood, as this allows them to be close to friends, schools, and familiar stores. 

Choose a suite in your own area to make this period much easier for you and your family.

We Offer Large Homes With Ample Space

Some temporary suites are designed for business trips, and feel more like hotels than apartments. Our suites are famous for their homely feel and their ample space. 

If you have a family, we even offer three-bedroom properties with ample space for everyone. Some of our suites are even located in houses and townhouses, which means you can feel even more at home, depending on what you’re used to.

Our Suites Are Fully-Furnished and Fully-Equipped

There’s no need to worry about purchasing new cookware, furniture, or appliances. Your suite will be fully-furnished and fully-fitted with everything you could need. This means you can save money on emergency supplies during your stay, and get back to normal as quickly as possible.

Receive Bi-Weekly Cleaning Services

Here’s another thing you can check off your to-do list—cleaning! Cleaning can be an added hassle during an already stressful time. 

We offer a bi-weekly cleaning service for your apartment, so you can get on with the important stuff.

Take Advantage of the Building Amenities

Our condos are located in some of the city’s best buildings. Many include a range of great amenities, including spas, fitness centers, and parking, so that you and your family will have everything you could need at your fingertips.

Our Buildings Are Incredibly Safe

These condo buildings are also incredibly safe. All of our properties have 24/7 security and most suites are equipped with a security alarm system to ensure that you, your family, and your belongings are always completely safe. 

Many people in emergency situations can find themselves in uncomfortable, unsafe temporary housing—with DelSuites, you won’t have to worry about any more issues. 

We Offer a Personalized Experience

Our team at DelSuites always goes above and beyond for our guests. We can offer you a highly personalized experience. 

One of our agents can help you to find the best possible new home that ticks all of your boxes. We’ll meet with you personally and help you get settled in and re-oriented.

We Can Even Work With Your Adjuster

If you are working with an adjuster or claims investigator, our team can work with them too. We will connect with your adjuster and ensure you get the best, quickest new home you can.

We Offer Pet-Friendly Suites

Many pet-owners run into difficulties with temporary housing companies that do not allow pets. 

We understand how important it is to keep the whole family together, including your pets, so we’ll help you find a suite that allows pets, too.

No Taxes

At DelSuites, we do not charge hotel taxes. Most accomodation companies in Canada charge a 5% GST on top of other fees. 

Because we charge no taxes, you won’t have to worry about any surprise charges.
