Safety And Security: Ensuring Peace Of Mind In Toronto’s Corporate Housing

November 15, 2023
safety and security

In a constantly moving world, the modern business traveller seeks more than just comfort in corporate housing. The true essence of a home away from home is found not only in its amenities but also in the security and peace of mind it offers. 

As Toronto re-emerges as a hub for business travel in 2024, DelSuites stands at the forefront, providing secure and serene corporate housing that meets the evolving needs of its guests. 

Let’s explore how DelSuites prioritizes your safety, ensuring that your focus remains on what brought you to this vibrant city while we take care of the rest.

Access Denied: Your Privacy, Our Priority

The cornerstone of feeling secure in any accommodation is knowing that access is controlled and monitored. DelSuites takes this seriously, employing state-of-the-art access control systems.

We prioritize your privacy by implementing advanced access control systems, ensuring that only registered guests and authorized individuals can enter the premises. 

Each guest is provided with a personalized FOB upon registration, meticulously programmed for individual use. These systems ensure that your sanctuary in the GTA is guarded against any uninvited disturbances, giving you the tranquillity to rest, work, or play.

Our Security Personnel Make Your Stay Personal

Around the clock, every day of the week, the buildings’ security personnel remain vigilant so you can relax. Their presence is both a deterrent and a reassurance, a silent testament to your well-being. The men and women who watch over your temporary home are not just guards; they are custodians of your peace of mind, trained to maintain a safe environment while remaining discreetly in the background.

Eyes Where You Need Them

Surveillance is a vital piece of the security puzzle. At DelSuites, strategically placed cameras oversee common areas and entrances, acting as both watchdogs and witnesses. 

These digital eyes enhance the feeling of security, ensuring that while your privacy remains intact, any unusual activity is not unnoticed.

Fire Safety is Your First Line of Defence

Your safety is multi-dimensional at DelSuites, extending beyond security measures to include comprehensive fire safety protocols. With readily available fire extinguishers and regularly tested smoke detectors, you’re enveloped in a proactive environment that prioritizes your well-being.

Choosing Only the Best Toronto Neighborhoods

Location is key in real estate, and this holds true for your safety as well. DelSuites carefully selects corporate housing locations in some of Toronto’s safest neighbourhoods. You’ll find tranquillity not just within your suite but in the community that surrounds you, where the streets are well-kept, well-lit, and welcoming.

Emergency Response 27/7

At DelSuites, help is never more than a call away. The commitment to your safety is a 24/7 promise. Whether a minor concern or an unexpected situation, responsive support is always at your service, ensuring that every unforeseen event is swiftly and efficiently addressed.

Additional Safety Features 

Attention to detail is what sets DelSuites apart. Safety features like secure underground parking, well-lit pathways, and in-suite alarm panels mean that your security is integrated into your lifestyle, not just an added-on service. 

It’s about creating an environment where every detail, no matter how small, is considered through the lens of your safety and comfort.

Continuous Improvement Through Feedback

DelSuites understands that the pursuit of perfection is a continuous journey. Feedback from guests is not just welcomed; it is a cornerstone of the company’s evolution. Your experiences drive innovation and foster improvements, ensuring that each stay is safer and more secure than the last.

Why Furnished Rentals Beat Hotel Stays

October 13, 2023

Furnished rentals are an alternative to hotel stays when you are travelling for business or pleasure, but they also give so much more. Here are a few of the benefits that apartment-furnished rentals in Toronto have to offer.

With Furnished Rentals, you’ll have a full kitchen.

Part of the joy of travelling somewhere is checking out the local culinary scene, but if you are eating out for every meal during your trip it can get old (and expensive!). With your own kitchen, you will be able to cook whenever you wish and even host guests or business meetings within your own private space.


It’s so convenient to have your own kitchen so that you can whip up a quick breakfast in the morning before a day of sightseeing, or cook dinner for yourself with simple ingredients from the supermarket when you want to skip dining out and save money. The option to self-cater is also a huge life-saver if you have special dietary requirements that make it difficult to dine out.

You’ll have much more room.

Another delight of staying in a furnished apartment rental in Toronto that you just don’t get with a hotel room is the amount of space you will have. In a hotel room, you will usually just have a bed and perhaps a table, but in a furnished apartment you will have a living room, a separate bedroom and a kitchen. This means that if your travel partner wants to stay up and watch TV and you want to go to bed, you can do so without disturbing each other.

According to the Association of Serviced Apartment Providers, on average you will have 30% more space than the equivalent standard of a hotel. However, they figure that serviced apartment prices are typically 20% less than hotel rates of the same standard. So, you’ll be getting more space for a better rate.

Furnished Rentals

You can do laundry.

If you are in a hotel you have to send your clothes away for cleaning, which will cost extra. In your furnished apartment, all you have to do is pop them in the washing machine, add some soap, press a button and Voila! This means that if you spill food on your shirt before an important business meeting, there’s nothing to stress about. Also, you can pack light even for a longer trip, making getting around so much easier.

You’ll have parking.

Parking in the city is a pain, but when you stay in furnished apartments you’ll be able to keep your car safe and sound in the building’s covered parking lot. This saves you a lot of hassle. Plus – you may not even need a car. Many of our furnished rentals in Toronto are so well located that you’ll be close to public transit and you’ll be only a short walk from anything you might need like shops, entertainment, restaurants and more.

When it comes to having a comfortable, homey place to stay, furnished rentals in Toronto beat a hotel room – hands down.

Corporate Housing

Why Corporate Housing Is the Best Option for Your Company’s Housing Needs

August 5, 2023

Finding temporary corporate housing is a logistical puzzle that every project-based company needs to solve from time to time. Whether your business is in construction, film & production, finance, technology, your on-site employees and partners need a place to stay while your project runs its course. 

But finding a flexible option is challenging. And finding one that can improve your employee’s quality of life is even harder.

Corporate housing is a solution that gives your company a powerful tool to improve guest experiences for employees, partners, and other VIPs to your business. Having a functional space that your employees can use for short-term stays, events, and projects can improve their satisfaction, productivity, and promote collaboration.

Corporate housing is the most straightforward way to handle your employees’ housing needs. Your corporate housing provider will work with you to help you find your employees appropriate housing on site. 

Furnished Suites, Hotels, or Airbnb Rentals for Corporate Housing?

Hotels may be the industry standard, but they often fall short when it comes to their accessibility and flexibility. And if you’re planning for a longer stay, your company may need a more cost-effective option.  Meanwhile, Airbnb offers flexible experiences, but the quality of that experience may vary depending on the host. 


Consistency is one of the biggest challenges with Airbnb. Each host may have their own standards and regulations which can impact your employees, partners, and VIPs.

DelSuites standardized furnished suites guarantee your employees the same conditions every time. Each suite is based on industry standards, features a predictable design, and we service them all according to our internal cleaning procedures. This level of consistency ensures a predictable experience for everyone involved.

Fluctuating Prices 

Airbnb and hotel rentals are generally intended for short stays in high-demand areas. Airbnb’s prices often fluctuate, making it difficult for you to budget. This isn’t an ideal fit for companies with sporadic projects that require some flexibility.

If you predict your project or expansion will take multiple months, furnished suites are a better option. Corporate housing suites are designed to be lived in for up to a year, or even longer. 

DelSuites even offers discounts for stays longer than six months, so it’s easy for you to get good value from our suites and adapt to changing project timelines.

Quality of Service

When you rent from an Airbnb, you are trusting a stranger to provide the right level of service. Your employees are a valuable asset to your company, and it’s important they have a safe and secure place to stay.

You may even need to relocate your employee should a host decide to stop renting their property during a longer stay. When it comes to corporate housing, you need a proven company that’s entire business is built around positive guest experiences.

DelSuites has decades of experience providing residential housing to clients visiting Toronto and the GTA. Our teams can help you find the right accommodations, provide recommendations for your neighborhood, and keep your company unit up to your standards.


The safety of your employees is a top priority. COVID-19 has only demonstrated the need for widespread sanitation practices. You may be putting your employees into an unsafe situation by housing them in at a hotel or Airbnb. 

Airbnb created a guideline for COVID-19 sanitation protocols, but it’s still up to the individual host to follow these guidelines. And with hotels, high turnover rates are another issue that could put your employees at risk.

DelSuites puts staff and guest safety above all else. We have strict social distancing and cleaning protocols that ensure rooms are kept clean, look presentable, and safe. 

Try DelSuites’ Customized Approach to Corporate Housing

Corporate housing isn’t just a reliable, consistent option for temporary rentals. Our Toronto furnished suites often provide higher standards than you can find in temporary rentals, especially for the same price. There are many advantages that your company can benefit from when it comes to corporate housing.

Livable Spaces

Corporate housing suites are designed to be lived in for relatively long periods, and are laid out, furnished, and serviced accordingly. Our rooms are always fully furnished and include a kitchen,  separate living area, and come with a workspace. They are self-contained units that we carefully designed to be as convenient to live in as possible. 

Your employees can use them as a living space, host meetings, work on projects, or as a getaway when they need a quiet space to focus.

Large Selection of Rooms

DelSuites provides your company with access to a large portfolio of corporate housing options. Our catalogue includes studio apartments and one, two, and three-bedroom condos that are perfect for solo or business travellers, families, and VIPs.

In-Suite Kitchen

Are your employees tired of eating out? Every one of our units comes with a fully-equipped kitchen. Your employees can cook their own meals from a space that feels like home, making it easier for them to relax and unwind.

Our bi-weekly cleaning service also ensures that your suite and kitchen are properly cleaned and sanitized.

Additional Unit and Building Amenities

DelSuites make a point of offering the same high-quality amenities with each one of our suites. Each room includes high-speed internet and a landline with local and North American long-distance calls. 

Our buildings also include additional amenities such as laundry, gyms, swimming pools, and more.

24/7 Security

We take our guests’ safety seriously. Most of our suites have built-in alarm systems to prevent break-ins. 

Every building also has 24-hour security, so you can be sure your employees and guests are safe.

VIP Options

Does your company need a corporate housing solution to impress VIPs? We have a selection of VIP suites for you to choose from. 

DelSuites will help you find the right unit, so you can focus on creating an exceptional experience for your VIPs.

A Second Home for Commuters

Your employees may need to regularly commute from one city to another for business. Corporate housing provides employees with a stable place to stay when they visit. 

This makes it easy for you to plan and schedule employee stays without worrying about customer service desks and other delays.

Multi-Use Rooms

It’s not uncommon for hotels and other temporary lodgings to restrict how you can use a space. Corporate housing allows you to use the area however you need. If your room is left vacant, you can still use it as an office and hold meetings, or events. 

DelSuites gives you complete control and flexibility over how you use the space.

Dedicated to Your Business

When you rent corporate housing from DelSuites, our inside sales team will handle all of the logistics. We handle the moving-in processes, and reservations, and learn how your company operates to allow us to serve you better. 

We assign a dedicated account manager to your company to negotiate a housing budget that works for you. The account manager will make sure everything suits your needs, and handle specific requests, and any escalations.

Investing in Corporate Housing Benefits Your Business

Corporate housing is a budget-friendly option that can reduce the amount your company spends on hotels, meal expenses, and other travel-related expenses. It also provides your employees with a consistent experience they can count on.

Investing in proper housing for your employees can improve their productivity and overall satisfaction. Keeping your employees’ well-being in mind will result in better returns for your business from the talented people that make it possible.

Locations That Suit You and Your Employees

DelSuites has locations all across Toronto and the GTA. If your company is starting a project anywhere near Toronto, we almost certainly have corporate housing suites conveniently close to your work site.

We choose the locations for our suites carefully, with your employees in mind. We carefully position our suites near schools and other conveniences, with safe neighbourhoods in mind. Our goal is for our locations to be conveniently located in proximity to the workplace, and be good locations for your employees’ families. 

Create a Customized Corporate Housing Plan With DelSuites

When it comes to choosing Toronto corporate housing, it’s crucial to select a well-established housing company. Housing is a serious investment, and you want to make sure there are contingency plans in case things go wrong.

As a Tridel company, and a member of the Corporate Housing Providers Association (CHPA), Corporate Employee Relocation Council (CERC), and Global Business Travel Association (GBTA)—we have a deep understanding of industry best practices and use that knowledge to create exceptional guest experiences.

You can’t go wrong with a short-term rental by DelSuites. If you’re interested in learning more, contact us today to see what a corporate housing suite can do for your business.

May 25, 2023
Stress Free, Short Term Rental, Toronto

In recent years, short-term condo rentals have become an increasingly popular option for business travellers seeking comfortable and flexible accommodations during their trips. While these rentals can offer unique benefits, they can also present potential challenges that can cause undue stress. 

We will discuss tips for ensuring a stress-free short-term condo rental experience for business travellers. By planning ahead, you can make your next business trip enjoyable, productive, and hassle-free.

Choose the Right Rental Platform

One of the first steps in ensuring a stress-free short-term rental experience is choosing the right platform to book your accommodation. There are numerous online platforms available, each with its own unique offerings and user experiences. By using DelSuites, you are able to choose the perfect condo rental all around the Greater Toronto Area that suits your needs. Look for a platform that prioritizes safety, offers comprehensive customer support, and has an easy-to-use interface. 

Select the Perfect Location

The location of your short-term condo rental can have a significant impact on your overall experience. Ideally, you should choose a property that is conveniently located near your meetings, conferences, or other business-related activities. Additionally, consider factors such as access to public transportation, proximity to restaurants and grocery stores, and safety of the neighbourhood. By selecting a rental in the perfect location, you can minimize the stress associated with commuting and navigating unfamiliar areas.

Communicate with Your Guest Services Team

Establishing clear communication with your host is crucial to a stress-free rental experience. Prior to booking, ask any questions you may have about the property, its amenities, and the local area. Booking with DelSuites allows you to communicate right to the Guest Services Team for any support needed during your stay. This can help you address any issues that may arise, such as needing an early check-in or late check-out or dealing with maintenance concerns. A responsive and helpful guest services team can go a long way to ensuring a pleasant stay.

Pay Attention to Amenities

As a business traveller, you will likely have specific needs when it comes to amenities. High-speed Wi-Fi and a dedicated workspace may be essential for your productivity. Additionally, consider other conveniences such as a fully equipped kitchen, laundry facilities, and on-site parking. Make sure to review the property listing thoroughly to ensure it has everything you need for a comfortable and productive stay.

Set a Budget and Stick to It

Budgeting is a critical aspect of any business trip. Determine your budget for accommodations and stick to it when searching for and booking your rental. Be sure to factor in any additional fees, such as cleaning fees, taxes, and service charges, when calculating the total cost of your stay. By setting a budget and sticking to it, you can avoid the stress associated with overspending. DelSuites stays of 30 nights or longer are tax-exempt.

Familiarize Yourself with Local Transportation

Navigating an unfamiliar city can be a significant source of stress for business travellers. To minimize this, familiarize yourself with local transportation options before your trip. Research the most efficient routes to your meetings, conferences, or other business-related activities. Additionally, consider downloading local transportation apps or purchasing a public transportation pass to the TTC, VIVA or GO lines of transportation can make your commute even more seamless.

Keep a Flexible Schedule

While having a plan for your business trip is essential, maintaining some flexibility in your schedule can help alleviate stress. Build in some buffer time for unexpected delays, such as traffic or meetings that run longer than anticipated. Additionally, allow yourself to explore the local area and enjoy some downtime. A flexible schedule can help you strike the right balance between work and leisure, ultimately leading to a more enjoyable and productive trip.

Practice Self-Care

Lastly, don’t forget to prioritize self-care during your business trip. Incorporate relaxation techniques into your daily routine, such as deep breathing exercises or meditation, to help manage stress. Ensure you’re getting adequate sleep, eating well, and staying hydrated. By taking care of yourself physically and mentally, you can maintain your focus and energy throughout your trip.

Choosing The Right Solution for Your Business Travels

A short-term rental can be the ideal accommodation option for business travellers, offering the comforts of home while away from home. By following these tips, you can ensure a stress-free experience that allows you to focus on your work while also enjoying your surroundings. From choosing the right rental platform to maintaining open communication with your host, prioritizing self-care and staying prepared for unexpected situations, a little planning and consideration can go a long way in making your next business trip a success.

Setting Sights For Canada Relocation

May 2, 2023

Despite the long winters and icy temperatures, many workers from around the globe want to move to the land of maple syrup and poutine in order to work, live and raise their families in this peaceful, safe, democratic and welcoming environment.

Canada Relocation – A Safe and Pleasant Place to Live

Entering Canada Becoming Easier

Also, countries such as the USA, the UK and Australia are making it more difficult for people to enter and work. Canada is currently opening up and going in the opposite direction, which makes it more appealing for Canada relocation.

Canada RelocationSome of the changes implemented include a reduction of the required duration for physical presence in Canada from 3 out of 5 years to 4 out of 6 years. Also, a portion of the time that has already been spent in Canada before achieving permanent resident status will now be allowed to count toward time for residency requirements.

Canada has also been designing systems that are designed to lure skilled workers from around the world, such as the Express Entry System and the new Global Skills Strategy. These new changes are part of a larger overhaul of the Canadian Citizenship Act. Canada aims to be more open to migration and to serve as a beacon for top global talent.
