What is a serviced apartment?

To avoid the disappointing limitations of a hotel, book a serviced apartment for your next corporate stay in Chicago. Simply put, our serviced apartments in Chicago are tailored to corporate travellers, providing a sense of home from home comfort other forms of accommodation cannot provide. Merging the high quality services associated with luxury hotels, with the privacy and space found with private rented properties, serviced apartments are ideal for business travel. They offer our customers a host of benefits, including:

·         Privacy and flexibility. Corporate housing provides guests with a generous amount of living space, and, unlike a hotel, designated areas in which to relax, sleep, cook and work. Staying in a serviced apartment means you are free from inhibiting hotel schedules – you can do as you please, and the option to book in your own private space unlocks your own flexible timetable. Furthermore, corporate housing units are free from busy hotel foyers and corridors, meaning your sense of peace and privacy is enhanced, truly providing a sense of being at home.

·         Amazing value. Compared with hotel suites offering similar space and features, serviced apartments offer a much better rate. Furthermore, serviced apartments benefit from a tax cut for bookings extending beyond 28 days, meaning greater savings can be made. This makes our apartments ideal for relocating colleagues who need long-term temporary accommodation while awaiting permanent residences.

·         Luxury services as standard. With many of our corporate housing options coming in dedicated buildings, there are often a range of included amenities on-site. These vary from apartment to apartment, but can include fitness centres, swimming pools, conference rooms, 24 hour reception desks and concierge services. Further services are also often available for extra cost, such as restaurants, bars and shopping services.
