What is a serviced apartment?

When travelling to McLean on business, sourcing a comfortable hub from which you can work, socialise, rest and strategise is a sure fire way to ensure success. A serviced apartment in McLean blends the functional and luxurious services of a hotel with the privacy and comfort of a private rented space. Simply put – a corporate serviced apartment offers the best of both worlds, resulting in a host of benefits including:

·         Excellent value. Compared with expensive hotels, serviced apartments offer so much more for your money. With a host of included features and services, plus a massive amount of additional space for living, cooking and entertaining, serviced accommodation is much better value. Furthermore, when staying beyond a certain duration serviced apartments reduce in nightly rate, meaning our apartments are perfect for relocating staff that need a temporary residence while awaiting permanent accommodation in McLean.

·         Flexible living. Unlike a confined and restrictive hotel room which adhered to stringent hotel curfews and timetables, a serviced apartment offers a more free and comfortable lifestyle. With a private space, much more like a home, you can truly relax and utilise the amenities provided as you see fit. With rooms for socialising, resting or conducting business, a serviced apartment can be a base between business appointments which offers somewhere peaceful to plan the day ahead.  

·         Optional services. With many apartments offering access to a host of features as standard – such as on-site gyms, swimming pools, bars and restaurants – you are able to select services which appeal to you. Having the option to stay fit on your business travels removes the need to source a local gymnasium, and an on-site restaurant is perfect for the end of a busy day of business appointments when cooking a meal just isn’t on your to do list.
