What is a serviced apartment?

While hotels are often the ‘go-to’ accommodation choice for business travel, more and more businesses are opting to use serviced apartments – with good reason.

Serviced apartments in New York (sometimes referred to as New York corporate accommodation/housing) provide you with a true ‘home-from-home’ space to enjoy on your business trip. In addition to the safety and wellbeing benefits, our serviced apartments in NYC provide (thanks to their additional space, safety, and privacy) many on-site amenities for guests to use.

In essence, everything you need is close to hand – whether it’s a gym, bar, restaurant, conference room, or parking – meaning that even newcomers to New York will feel at home as soon as they arrive. With one-, two-, and three-bedroom New York short-stay apartments available, you can accommodate your colleagues or family when relocating with ease – just call SilverDoor and we’ll get your journey started.

New York state key facts

  • State capital: Albany
  • State Population: 20.2 million 
  • Time Zone: EDT (UTC -4)
  • Key Industries: Banking, Technology, Media, Tourism

Spanning over 54,000 square miles, New York State is only the 27th largest US state by area. Despite this, it boasts the largest US city by population in New York. In addition to New York City’s booming Wall Street and huge international appeal, the wider state has a strong economy bolstered by industries across the region.

‘Tech Valley’, found in Albany, Saratoga County, Hudson Valley, and Rensselaer County, continues to show excellent growth in high-technology and computer hardware. Similarly, the state produces a high volume of agricultural goods – and is in fact the biggest producer of cabbage in the country! SilverDoor has a vast portfolio of corporate serviced apartments in New York, so if you’re planning to visit the Empire State anytime soon, we're your best choice for finding New York corporate housing to suit you.

Things to do in New York

While it’s easy to list the staggering number of attractions in New York City, the wider state has plenty to see and do. Including:

  • Niagara Falls – Niagara Falls is actually a city in New York State, but it’s best known for the incredible waterfalls at Niagara Gorge. Consisting of three separate waterfalls, this stunning natural wonder is a must when staying in New York State on business.
  • Lake Placid – Continuing the water theme, Lake Placid is an appropriately peaceful lake set in a village of the same name in Essex County. As well as being a beautiful natural escape, the lake is well known for winter sports and its nearby restaurants.
  • Hudson Valley – this area skirts both sides of the Hudson River between New York City and Albany in the north. Autumn is a great time to visit for the stunning foliage as it changes from summer to winter. There's also no end of hiking trails to explore and abundant fishing and watersports to enjoy on the river itself.

Transport in New York

Wherever your New York serviced apartment may be, rest assured that the state has an extensive transport network to get you where you need to be.

New York State has 11 international airports, meaning that arriving as close as possible to your destination can be easily done. New York City’s major airports, JFKLaGuardia, and Newark, are some of the busiest in the country and will likely be used for any inter-state connection flights.  

Subways and commuter railroad systems are plentiful, not least in New York City and neighbouring New Jersey. Depending on your destination, a car may or may not be your best mode of transport. However you decide to travel, we have serviced apartments in New York, wherever you may be heading.

Things to know when visiting New York

Before you arrive at one of our corporate apartments in NYC, it’s best to familiarise yourself with New York State’s culture and lifestyle so that your trip goes off without a hitch. Here's information you might find useful:

  • Two New Yorks – New York State is politically divided, with ‘upstate’, more rural New York typically being home to conservatives, while New York City and other urban areas typically lean to the left. You’re more than likely, therefore, to find a mix of political opinions during your stay.
  • Towering taxes – If you’re thinking of relocating to New York, be aware that property taxes are notoriously high. While they are somewhat lower in New York City, upstate property taxes are much higher – so be prepared! Having said that, property prices outside NYC are lower generally that you might expect.
  • Continental climate – New York State, broadly speaking, has a humid continental climate. While this can result in colder winters, south-eastern areas including NYC experience a warmer climate zone – meaning fewer freezing temperatures. Thunderstorms can also be common in the state with weather systems travelling across the area from Canada and the Great Lakes. Snow is common in winter, even in NYC, so be sure to take appropriate clothing.
