The reasons to consider temporary corporate lodging are plentiful: you have access to a fully furnished apartment with all the comforts of home, the option typically is less expensive than a hotel stay and corporate housing offers a safe and secure lodging option, among other benefits. Additionally, you often have access to an array of amenities that apartment residents enjoy, such as a resort-style pool, a 24/7 fitness center, a business center, a media room, a club room with coffee service, covered parking and more. Yet, today’s corporate lodging locales are now going above and beyond with even more high-end amenities—some that you may never have even considered before.
“With a change in demographics and more younger renters, as well as a huge push to be more green, there’s a need to stand out and be different from the community next door or down the street,” explains Timothy P. Miller, CCHP, president and owner of TP Corporate Lodging, Inc. “Also, because rents in newly constructed communities are high, it’s important that amenities are added and constantly being upgraded to make residents feel like they are getting more for their money.”
According to Miller, some of the newest amenities that are making waves in the corporate lodging market include:
- Dog parks and pet spas
- Electric car charging stations
- Bike storage with limited access
- Yoga and dance classes at complex fitness centers
- Digital transportation boards with current train times, the nearest Uber drivers and local weather
- Digital boards in the lobby or mail room to alert residents that packages have been delivered to the package room
- A room of small refrigerators to hold flower and food deliveries for the residents who are leasing their apartments out for use and can be accessed upon their return
If you are using corporate lodging as you visit Atlanta during a home search or if you need a place to stay before your new home in the ATL is ready for move in, then these types of amenities undoubtedly will be welcomed.
“Most guests in corporate housing are coming from homes, so the more amenities and home-like features there are, the more attractive the corporate lodging is,” Miller continues.
And the list of amenities will certainly grow as needs and demands change. For instance, Miller notes that a variety of new technology amenities—from smart speakers and appliances to new cooking tools—are on the horizon as well for the corporate lodging market.
The important thing to remember is that the amenities at corporate lodging complexes are part of the cost of the stay, so you should always feel free to take advantage of them. Also, working with a professional corporate lodging agency can help you find the complex that best fits your needs and can provide you with the amenities that will allow you to feel like you have a true home away from home.
