The Livmore: Toronto Living for Everyone

February 7, 2019

Toronto Living Toronto is one of the most vibrant and diverse cities in North America. It’s known for its robust arts and entertainment scene, it’s dazzling selection of international eateries, it’s world-class museums and it’s many exciting festivals. Toronto living is for everyone – no matter what you love you’ll find it here. Whether you enjoy shopping for unique styles, admiring works of art, relaxing in quiet parks, listening to live music or coffee-shop-hopping, you’ll discover a corner of this city that fits.

The best way to make the most of Toronto is with a stay at the Livmore. This downtown apartment building has a prime location.

Toronto Living – Condos Of All Sizes

The solo traveler who seeks out a compact, yet practical studio with everything they need for a connected and comfortable stay. The family relocating to Toronto and needing space for their children to sleep and play. With studios as well as one, two and three bedroom condos, there are furnished accommodations just the right size for everyone’s needs. Plus, they are equipped with features such as a full kitchen, washing machine and dryer, luxurious bathrooms and Toronto Livingspacious closets.

A Range of Activities

Keep up your active lifestyle while on the road at the gym and fitness area – or relax and centre your mind in the yoga studio. There’s also a theatre and screening room, which is a great place to enjoy your favourite films on the big screen. (If you have a furry companion, there’s even a dog spa and outdoor dog area for them to enjoy.)

Plus, you have the option to use the party room – a private function area with kitchen facilities. This can be very convenient if you plan on hosting an event during your stay.

Toronto LivingFor Every Stage of Life

It’s quite clear – the aspects of Toronto living that will appeal to a couple in their 20s will likely be different than those of an older traveler, or parents visiting with young children. Depending on your priorities, you might be seeking out the nightlife and live music scene of this Canadian metropolis, or you may be more interested in quiet cafes and walks along the waterfront.

The good news is, the choice is yours. These furnished apartments in Toronto are right in the heart of the city, so the options are right at your fingertips.

It’s all about versatility! For more info on downtown Toronto living, contact us today.

It’s obvious that a lot of tender loving care goes into preparing these steaks, and you can taste the difference. f seafood is more your thing, you can feast on a big juicy lobster, or some spicy

Cajun shrimp.

uce, caramel and almonds.

DelSuites Turns 20 Years Old!

November 15, 2018

DelSuites Turns 20DelSuites Turns 20!

In October 2018, DelSuites turns 20 – reaching a milestone. Our company has been around for a full two decades. On the year DelSuites launched, Titanic was dominating at the Oscars, the first Apple iMac was released, the last episode of “Seinfeld” aired, and Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were still a thing.

Crazy, huh?

Looking back over the years, we are incredibly grateful for all of the wonderful guests and clients we have been able to work with. It’s a thrill DelSuites turns 20 and to be able to be part of the serviced apartment industry in Toronto and we’ve learned so much – so thank you.

DelSuites Turns 20

Oakwood Worldwide 2017 Partner Award

We’re also honoured by the awards that we have received over the last few years, including:

  • Oakwood Worldwide 2017 Partner Award – DelSuites had the highest guest satisfaction across their internal and client surveys. ‘DelSuites always works diligently to serve our guests and their Guest Services jumps on the service issues if they arise. They are all around great suppliers to work with’ – Oakwood Worldwide Employee.
  • TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence (5 years running!)
  • CHPA (Best Green Progress) 2017 – The Best Green Progress Award recognizes a company exemplifying environmental responsibility and social performance through policies, plans and activities.

During the last 20 years, we’ve grown to become the largest serviced housing provider in Toronto with over 450 suites throughout the Greater Toronto Area. We are part of the Tridel Group of Companies, Canada’s leader in condo living.

Not bad for a 20 year old!

What Will the Future Bring?

Like many 20 year olds out there, we feel like this is the beginning of our story and we are just getting started.
Here’s what you can expect from us at DelSuites in the future:

Support for Causes We Believe In

DelSuites Turns 20

Toronto Humane Society

From donating towels and linens to Anguilla to support hurricane relief efforts, to providing blankets and bed sheets for animals at the Toronto Humane Society, to donating linens and towels to a primary school in Jamaica, we have always made the effort to support causes that are close to our hearts. We will continue in the future, as this is really important to our company values.

Commitment to Sustainability

We will continue to care about the environment. In 2017, we combined offices with our sister company Del Condominium Rentals and underwent office renovations at Tridel’s Head Office – to ensure that our working environment is sustainable as possible. We cut down our paper consumption by 75%, switched to LED light bulbs, implemented Eco Pens and made many other tweaks to reduce our carbon footprint.

Improving Customer Satisfaction

Our customers are really important to us, so we are always working to improve our customer satisfaction. We do this in a number of ways, including our Preventative Maintenance program that inspects suites regularly to keep them in tip-top shape. We’ve also launched our Guest Appreciation Program, where we thank our guests with a thoughtful gift and let them know how much we appreciate their business.

Cheers to another 20 years!

DeSuites Turns 20We are always looking to the future and thinking about how we can be the best company we can be… so we are pretty excited to see what the future will bring! Whether you’ve been with us since the beginning, or we have just met… we send a sincere “Thank You” your way. We couldn’t do it without you!

Digital Nomads and Working Remotely

July 13, 2018

Digital NomadsCue the rise of digital nomads, a freelancer, employee or business owner who uses technology to be able to travel the world while getting work done. A digital nomad could have a number of careers, including freelance writer, translator, software designer, blogger, programmer, website builder, graphic designer – or perhaps a combination of these. They could also run their own business – there are a number of businesses that can be built online that do not require their owners to be based in any location.

When digital nomads book accommodation on their travels around the world, they are not looking for the same things that typical travellers seek. Vacationers look for comfort and entertainment – they are mostly concerned with the quality of the swimming pool and whether they can order a cocktail from their sunlounger. Digital nomads, although they will certainly have time to relax and enjoy while they are in a destination, may be more concerned about whether or not the WiFi will be fast.

Why Digital Nomads Love Furnished Apartments

When it comes down to it, one of the very best accommodation style for digital nomads are furnished Digital Nomadsapartments. Here’s why:

  • These apartments can be booked for a longer term stay, for a few months or longer. This works well for digital nomads, as they often tend to travel more slowly and stay in one place longer than those on vacation.
  • However, rather than typical apartments there is no need to sign a minimum 1 year lease having to make a big commitment – which is ideal for a nomadic lifestyle.
  • Furnished apartments often have a separate living space to the bedroom, so that digital nomads don’t have to try to be productive while sitting up in bed. Some furnished apartments even have a desk or workspace area!
  • The apartments are equipped with high speed internet, which is essential for getting work completed online.
  • The kitchen allows the digital nomad to cook for themselves, so that they don’t have to eat in a restaurant for every meal.
  • A well-located furnished apartment means that the digital nomad traveler will be in an advantageous location, close to lots of amenities and the top attractions in the destination as well.

Digital NomadsMost importantly, a furnished apartment feels more like home. It doesn’t have the impersonal feeling that a hotel room can have. This is important, because the digital nomad lifestyle isn’t the same as a travel lifestyle. It’s more like living on the road than traveling, so digital nomads tend to really appreciate the little things that make them feel comfortable and at home in their accommodations.
