Why Choose a Short-Term Apartment vs. a Hotel

Relocating to a new city on short notice can be stressful when you need to find housing quickly and at an affordable cost. While a hotel might seem like the obvious choice for a short-term stay, they tend to be more expensive, offer fewer accommodations, and feel less like home than an apartment. Use this guide to understand the benefits of an apartment vs. an extended stay hotel for temporary housing.

Benefits of a Short-Term Apartment

Unlike living in a hotel, short-term corporate housing offers the accommodations and comfort of your own home. Enjoy a large, private space where you can cook your own meals, sleep in your own bed, and have guests over. You’ll still be able to take advantage of the amenities a hotel would have, like a fitness center, pool and hot tub, and outdoor spaces, with convenient features most hotels don’t offer: in-house laundry, kitchens, multiple rooms, fireplaces, designated parking, garages, and more.

Renting a short-term apartment also gives you a wider selection of location options. With a few apartment communities to choose from, you’re sure to find an apartment near your job, favorite part of town, or any other specific area that’s important to you. Apartment complexes are usually more flexible regarding pets than hotels, so you’ll be able to relocate quickly in a place that satisfies both you and your furry friend. Corporate housing units may come fully furnished, like hotels, but have the added advantage of allowing residents to lease furniture of their choice or bring their own.

Cost Comparison

In most cases, renting a short-term apartment instead of staying at a hotel can save you almost half the costs. Short-term rentals are ideal because of the extensive range of services they provide at an affordable price. Your corporate housing associate will be able to handle all aspects of your move, from coordinating the lease to providing kitchenware and linens. Don’t worry about setting up your utilities—short-term corporate housing ensures your Wi-Fi, cable, water, gas, electric, and phone services are all set up before your arrival. Most short-term rental services also allow you to pay for all of your housing and utility expenses together in one bill.
