Savings for Business Travellers

From: Executive Roomspace
Published: Tue Sep 13 2005


With hotel prices soaring and London losing its affordable hotels to demolition and refurbishment as parts of big hotel chains, business travellers are often forced to pay premium prices for a hotel room. Many companies have found a simple and more affordable solution to their housing dilemma - a serviced apartment. Serviced apartments are available for rent through Executive Roomspace. They are cheaper than regular hotel suites and offer the feeling of home to a business traveller who may be weary of yet another standard hotel room in yet another city.
Such apartments can be rented from one month and discounts are available for long-term stays.

Charlie McCrow, Managing Director at Executive Roomspace, said that foreigners coming to the UK, for the first time stay in a hotel first of all, but those who have been to the city before, opt for serviced apartments. "Many spend their first two nights in a hotel and later move to an apartment. Renting a short-let for a short term as opposed to staying at a hotel makes a lot of sense because they can be a budget option for business travellers, especially in the face of a looming 30 percent increase in hotel room prices and 100 percent occupancy at the hotels".

Help is at hand through apartment booking companies such as The Apartment Service, where the benefits of their advice will outweigh any perceived savings of self-booking on-line an apartment and negotiating direct.

The serviced apartment market has emerged as a most cost-effective alternative to hotel accommodation and, at times the only option to consider. High in comfort, low in cost with complete consistency. Three Cís that provide a good benchmark for anyone needing to stay, for whatever length of time, away from home.

Executive Roomspace was founded in 1997 as the first UK-based, branded apartment product. It quickly established itself as the largest UK brand of medium priced corporate apartment accommodation, with over 250 units in 30 locations throughout London and the South.
