What is a serviced apartment?

A serviced apartment offers a perfect combination of hotel quality services and private, spacious rented accommodation. Simply put – our serviced apartments provide a home-from-home residence during your business trip which allows for a private, comfortable and convenient place from which to conduct your business trip on your own schedule. Our corporate housing in Winnipeg provides many benefits, including:

·         Incredible value. Our serviced apartments offer fantastic value, especially when compared with hotels offering similar features and space – which in itself is hard to find. As well as the nightly saving in cost, our apartments also benefit from a long-stay tax reduction beyond a certain threshold. This saving is passed onto the client, meaning longer-stay apartments are even better value for money. This is particularly useful for relocating colleagues requiring long-stay accommodation when waiting for a permanent residence in a new location.

·         Flexibility and privacy. In a hotel you often feel cramped, crowded and uncomfortable – particularly when working. A serviced apartment, on the other hand, offers a peaceful residence, away from bustling hotel corridors, foyers and elevators. Serviced apartment buildings are quiet, dedicated buildings with peace and comfort in mind. Having a fully fitted kitchen within your spacious home-from-home allows you the ultimate convenience of being able to cook should you want to, meaning you don’t need to worry about making reservations or being restricted to hotel timetables. Instead you have a spacious home with designated living areas where you can work, relax, rest, entertain or simply prepare for your business appointments in comfort.

·         Brilliant services. Many of our serviced apartments come with on-site amenities and services as standard, meaning you have the option to indulge in whichever services provide you with the convenience and lifestyle you prefer when travelling for business. These can include gymnasiums, parking, swimming pools, cinemas, conference rooms, housekeeping and more.
