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

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

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.

COVID-19

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.

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 catalog includes studio apartments and one, two, and three-bedroom condos that are perfect for solo or business travelers, families, and VIPs.

In-Suite Kitchen

Are your employees tired of eating out? Every one of our units come 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 is 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.

VIP Options

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, hold meetings, or events. 

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

Dedicated to Your Business

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.
