When you’re traveling for an extended period of time, or if you need a place to stay when moving to new city or between housing arrangements, extended-stay hotels can be a great help. Extended stay hotels, often referred to as apartment hotels, often provide more room and some upgraded amenities that make your living situation feel more home-like. There are some amenities that can make staying in a hotel for a long term stay feel a bit more comfortable and convenient, though—things that you should look for when making your choice of where to book.
One thing that is beneficial in a long-term stay hotel is the option of having a bit more space. At Barcelona Suites, our suite-style hotel rooms have separate living and bedroom areas, so you can experience a bit more comfort since you’ll have more space.
Another thing to look for is what sort of in-room amenities are offered. For instance, if you need an extended stay booking, you probably don’t want to have to spend your entire visit dining out. Many extended stay hotels have refrigerators, microwaves, and even kitchenette features in their suites. Looking for these types of ensuite amenities can not only save you money, but can be incredibly convenient.
In the same vein, it’s ideal to stay at a hotel that has onsite laundry facilities. Having access to coin laundry means that you won’t have to scramble to find a nearby laundromat or transportation to said laundromat. Onsite amenities may also include creature comforts, depending on your preferences. For instance, choosing an extended stay hotel that offers a pool.
While location may not be as much on your radar as other features of an extended stay hotel, if you’re staying in any one area for a significant length of time, it’s helpful to stay in an area that’s located near things that you might want to do. For instance, shopping malls, local parks, and great dining options are all bonuses of staying in a well-located extended stay hotel.
