Regular business travelers become all too familiar with hotels, and it doesn’t take long for the downsides to pile up. No place to cook, not enough space, no privacy, no easy access to outside — the list goes on. Ordering room service or eating out all the time gets quite pricey, too. However, there’s a solution to consider: a short term business rental. Here’s why it’s your best option.
A Short Term Business Rental Offers Privacy
Staying a hotel is, quite literally, living in a community of fellow travelers for the length of your stay. You can spend top dollar on a great hotel room, but it will never feel like a home.

It not always easy to stay healthy when you’re on the road regularly. Sometimes you have no access to a kitchen to make a healthy meal. Your gym may be a thousand miles away. But don’t worry, because there are lots of little things you can integrate into your life on the road that will help keep you in good shape. Here are some tips for getting exercise while traveling for business.
Keep on the Move at the Airport
Sitting for long periods of time is one of the worst things you can do for your physical fitness. Most of us already sit more often than we should at work, and you’ll be sitting for your entire flight — so don’t get a head start at the airport.
Unless you’re in a rush to catch your flight, take the stairs, not the escalator. Walk instead of hopping on the people-mover in favor of the original people mover — your legs. Instead of sticking at the gate or at the bar, walk around the terminal. Airports are among the best places for people-watching. (more…)

Looking for a place to stay means evaluating your needs and preferences. It can also mean sacrificing comfort and convenience, for the sake of having a reasonable place to stay that meets your needs at a specific time. You’ve worked to make sure your home is perfectly suited for you in style, layout, furnishings, comfort, and more. That’s why there’s no place like home.
Having to find a place to stay for business, relocation, or vacation purposes that meets your immediate needs doesn’t mean having to forego comfort and convenience. It is possible to get the convenience of a hotel stay with the comfort and independence of your home.

Business travel can be a mixed bag. Yes it’s nice to get a break from the office and get out on the road (especially if you are travelling somewhere particularly nice like San Diego). But the thought of being away from friends and family, long meetings, and living in a box-like hotel room for days, weeks, or months can be a bit depressing as well.
While we can’t help you too much with the first two problems, staying in a fully furnished luxury apartment on your business trip sure beats another trip spent in a nondescript hotel that looks just like all the others and feels a long way from home. Still not convinced? Check out the rest of our reasons why corporate housing beats hotels for business travel.
