When it comes to traveling for work, business travelers often find themselves trying to strike a balance between location, convenience, flexibility, and cost. Recently, there’s been an upsurge of business travelers choosing temporary housing over staying at expensive hotels during their business trips or relocation. Luckily, there are many Denver apartment options such as condos, two to three-bedroom apartments, and even townhouses.

Whether you’re a business traveler heading to Louisville Co, Boulder, or Denver, there’s a rental out there that can meet your needs. Many wonder why short-term rentals are better than hotels, and here’s why.

Lower costs

Even in Downtown Denver, corporate housing is cheaper than staying in a hotel. While not always the case, nine times out of 10, staying in a corporate apartment for an extended time is much less expensive than checking into a hotel. Talk to your corporate housing provider to determine which Broomfield short-term rental is your best option. 

More space

Even the largest of extended stay hotels can’t measure up to the short-term rentals in the Denver area. Typically the short-term housing units are from 500 to 1000 square feet, while the hotels in Boulder Co and other areas weigh in at about 150 to 200 square feet, making it quite a difference. As a corporate traveler when you travel for business, you want all the comforts of home you can get, and that can’t happen in a hotel room with tiny floor plans. Staying in a hotel feels like staying in a hotel! Staying in a furnished apartment feels more like home. Talk to your real estate company about getting you a bigger space in Cherry Creek instead of opting for a hotel.

More amenities

If being in a neighborhood isn’t enough, the amenities that come with short-term rentals will help. Most of the utility costs are covered in many corporate housing units, and having your own kitchen is amazing. Other amenities you may find in Greenwood Village, Aurora and other areas are washer and dryer combos, stainless steel appliances, air conditioning, a fireplace, and other comforts of home. Consult with your relocation company about the types of properties available for short-term rental for business travelers that offer a 24-hour fitness center, and are within walking distance of the business center. 

Rent from someone you can trust

Whether apartment hunting in Longmont, Glendale, Littleton, or Speer, a proud member of the corporate housing providers association and the corporate housing team is someone you can trust to meet your corporate housing needs. With a diverse selection of properties and real estate listings that can be found easily through the apartment locator, renting short-term only makes sense, instead of staying in a hotel. What more could a tenant ask for?

More privacy

As a business traveler who is working a lot of the time, when you’re off, you want your privacy. You can’t get that in a hotel. The hotel lobbies are usually crowded and the fitness center could be as well. After you’ve visited the Denver Art Museum, you just want to come back to your short-term rental and relax, and not have to wade through crowds of tourists to get to your hotel room. As a tenant in a short-term rental, you have the perfect place to get away after you get off work and explore the trails of the likes of Lakewood, Colorado Springs, and Highland Ranch and what they have to offer. Don’t forget to also visit the city center and the Denver Botanic Gardens during your stay. 

These are just a few of the reasons that short-term rentals are better than staying at a hotel when you’re working in Denver Co. From the amenities to the Denver Zoo, you can save money, have your own privacy, and engage in plenty of fun pastimes within walking distance of temporary housing in Denver
