Temporary Housing apartment package complete living room, fully-stocked kitchen, and modern dining room.

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.

Hotel Stay vs. Temporary Housing: The Experience

People use a a hotel's cafe but it's crowded since limited space available in a hotel.

Hotel Stay

One of the best parts of staying at a hotel is the feeling of novelty that comes from being in a place that is most definitely not home. You are surrounded by new people, have the option of room service or eating out, and the focus is on the world around the hotel more than what you can do in it. However, after a few days, the experience can feel a bit tedious and frustrating since, for example, doing something ordinary like laundry requires more time and effort than you’re used to. As mentioned above, the saying goes, “There’s no place like home.” Home is the one place where at the end of the day we can kick off our shoes and be ourselves. But sometimes being away from home for a while can be exciting.

Temporary Housing

Temporary housing offers a much more personal and home-like experience than a hotel, especially with PC Housing. You get a fully-furnished home with a kitchen (not kitchenette), living space, and bedroom. Your process of settling in should be much faster and simpler than settling in a hotel: you get the complete home experience with no added stress or responsibilities.

PC Housing uses your input to customize your temporary home to include specific furnishings or items that are important to you and take care of all of the details on your behalf. We’ll do your shopping for you and have your requested items in place prior to your arrival.

Fully stocked kitchen with everything included.

All you have to do is arrive and focus on what you need and want to do—and enjoy your personally tailored welcome package, of course!

Plus, PC Housing eliminates any added stress during your move and stay with services like anytime check-in and personalized shopping. Your home has no required check-in time, so why should your temporary home have one? We promise to have your accommodations ready by midnight the day before your scheduled arrival date. At the same time, should you be uncertain of your arrival time or need to catch a red-eye, no problem! We will either place a lockbox on the front door with your keys inside or send your keys to you ahead of time.

Hotel Stay vs. Temporary Housing: The Amenities

At hotels linens, towels, and housekeeping are part of the included services. Additional amenities differ from hotel to hotel. Most extended-stay hotels also offer amenities like on-site laundry facilities and suites that include a small kitchen — which at the very least includes a refrigerator, sink and sometimes a microwave and stove. This is fine if you’re planning on eating out or preparing simple, straight-forward meals. Many hotels offer internet access, either included in your room rate or for an additional fee. The amenities available at hotels differ and can be fairly limiting. Getting packages and phone calls can become a hassle.

Temporary Housing

By using PC Housing’s services you free yourself from the limits of staying in a hotel. You get more than just a fully furnished and accessorized apartment, house, loft, or condo. You get anytime check-in, all linens, a fully equipped kitchen with housewares, electronics, telephone service, cable television, high-speed internet, in-home washer and dryer, weekly housekeeping, and utilities included. We also offer customized packages, customized billing, a private balcony or patio, and pet-friendly options.

With PC Housing’s available temporary homes, you get a flexible and comfortable experience that meets all of your needs. You even get your own washer and dryer at home, giving you the same freedom and independence you have at your home.

Hotel Stay

The environment in most hotels is full of movement and interruptions. That can make for an exciting experience, but if you want to focus on work, relaxing, or going about your day, being surrounded by strangers may not offer you the best possible experience. In a hotel you have no space for yourself outside your room—you even have to share the space right outside your hotel room.

Temporary Housing

When you opt for temporary housing over staying at a hotel, you get your own personal space. Free of distractions and added stress, you can focus on what’s truly important to you. And if you’ve brought along your pet, you don’t have to worry about having them crated or confined to a small space. You’ll feel much less constrained than if you were in a hotel. You don’t have to feel out of place or dependent on anyone or anything. We give you everything you need and provide you with a personalized experience. With a place to call your own, you won’t miss your other home.

In fact, PC Housing is so confident in our ability to meet your needs that we guarantee your satisfaction! We shared some of the benefits of temporary housing and now it’s up to you to make the right choice. If you’ll need temporary housing while you’re away for business, vacation, or any other reason, avoid a hotel and make sure you feel right at home. Contact us! We’re ready to make your stay as comfortable and smooth as possible.
