Extended Stay Hotels for Business Travel
November 17, 2009 | Permalink
When none other than the New York Times says that cost cutting in business travel is “the new normal,” you know that this is not the typical recession. Like none before it, this business slowdown is having permanent impacts on the traveling life of just about every road warrior.
According to one senior executive at American Express, past abilities to skirt travel budget restrictions may be a permanent thing of the past. It is up to each business traveler to find the arrangements that stay within budget, but don’t make life on the road unbearable.
Fortunately, staying within budget does not mean staying in tiny motel rooms that offer zero comfort. While Extended Stay Hotels cannot do anything about the high cost of airlines or gasoline, they do offer some key ways to keep the boss happy, the accounting department satisfied and the traveler comfortably productive.
Great rates and productive surroundings – All it takes is a quick glance at the Extended Stay Hotels website to see what a great value these hotels offer. Even in major metropolitan areas, like Boston or Chicago, Extended Stay Hotels currently offers clean, comfortable rooms for under $65 per night. Any boss will love that price. Special weekly rates are also available for longer stays.
Every Extended Stay Hotels room includes the space and tools you needed to be comfortable and productive on the road. Extras like wireless internet access for a nominal fee, free local phone calls and voicemail, and a separate area for work keep productivity and morale high.
Direct billing – Accounting departments love the no hassle direct billing offered by Extended Stay Hotels. Once you join, your bill from any of the almost 700 hotels nationwide is handled through a single department. No lost receipts and no hassles.
Large, comfortable rooms - Each of the Extended Stay Hotels is built to deliver large, comfortable accommodations at reasonable rates. Every studio has a full kitchen and separate work area. After a long day of working, few things are better than a simple, quiet meal and a great night’s sleep.
Meeting today’s need for cost effective company travel is no easy task. However, making Extended Stay Hotels your preferred travel option is a great move in the right direction.
