In terms of corporate housing New York is one of the best places in the world to go and stay whilst you are working away. Such was the nature of my last job I had to travel around an awful lot and that resulted in me staying in many, many corporate housing locations. Of all the cities that I had traveled to during that time, New York was by far and away the best, and here is why they always seem to get it so right, at least in my opinion.
Influx of Business Travelers
It may not be the capital city but there is absolutely no question about the fact that New York is the capital when it comes to business. This of course means that there are individuals from all over the world who come here for important meetings and to work short term, and that creates a huge demand for corporate housing. This demand of course will always be supplied in a city like New York and this is why there is such an abundance of options in the city, in all 5 boroughs.
Expectation of Quality
The business travelers who are coming to meet with execs or to support with mergers and financial exchanges are not the type of travelers who will stay in some two bit hostel and be happy with their location, not at all. There is a certain expectation from business travelers coming to this city that they are given luxury and of a very high standard. This is something which you can certainly find throughout the city and my experience has always been absolutely fantastic, no matter where I have stayed.
Real Estate Capital
There is another reason why I believe corporate housing to be the best in this city and that s because when it comes to real estate in general, New York has always lead the way for others to follow. Whether it is building design, apartment styling or property layout, this is the city which has always been the trailblazers. This extends itself perfectly to what they are doing with regards to corporate housing, and in my view this is something which many more businesses should be looking at doing.
Reacting During Tough Times
One thing which those in New York who operate corporate housing should be incredibly proud of is the way in which they have handled themselves throughout the last 12 months. Some have given up space for healthcare workers, others have sought to make huge changes in order to make sure that guests are properly protected and all told the industry has really shown creativity when it comes to the way in which it treats its guests and the way in which it has managed to attain a high level of custom.
There truly is no other city like New York when it comes to the options which are available for corporate housing.
