The Serviced Apartment Market is Booming and it’s Easy to See Why, Says Select

December 14, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Until recently outside of Central London, hotels were the only option available to business travelers looking for long term accommodation. This meant that staying away from home for weeks on end was both costly and somewhat uncomfortable. The recent growth of serviced apartments has changed that.

The serviced apartment market is now booming and it’s easy to see why according to Select

Select Apartments is a leading UK company specialising in finding apartment solutions for the corporate sector. It has recently announced the addition of a number of new properties to its UK portfolio which has grown by over 27% in the last year.

So what is fuelling the demand for serviced apartments?

‘Staying in a serviced apartment offers a range of benefits to the business traveller including cost savings, comfort and convenience’, says marketing director, Adrian England.

‘They are much cheaper than hotels- often 25% cheaper. Plus you avoid the day to day living costs associated with hotel stays such as eating out and paying for laundry. This is because they have kitchens and all the mod cons you would expect to find at home.

The extra space and privacy is also attractive. Serviced apartments typically have en-suite bathrooms, fully equipped kitchens and living rooms as well as (“Fax” - deleted), broadband and satellite television.’

Ultimately the serviced apartment market is growing because it offers business travelers a perfect home from home at a price that makes business-sense.
