About ZACK Corporate Housing

What is ZACK's experience with corporate housing?




Corporate Housing, the Smart Hotel Alternative

What is corporate housing?

Corporate housing is an affordable alternative to a hotel or motel that gives you more room, more privacy, and more of the comforts of home when you are relocating, between homes, or working away from home. Simply put, you get more for less.

Fully-furnished, full-size residential housing: Corporate housing is a fully-furnished residential apartment with a separate living/dining room, bedroom, and full kitchen. It is sometimes called a corporate or serviced apartment.

Amenities generally include TV, utilities, and all linens, cookware, and appliances. Some providers offer upgrade packages or housekeeping services for additional fees.

ZACK's all-inclusive rental includes premium amenities. What others consider optional, we consider basic: digital cable, phone, high-speed Internet, reserved parking, washer and dryer, and housekeeping service.

Our local staff takes care of your service requests, provides housekeeping service, and hand-selects the distinctive furnishings and amenities. We're on the spot, so you aren't left to deal with a distant customer service department.

Is corporate housing the same as extended-stay hotels or suites?

NO. Extended-stay hotel or motel suites include kitchenettes and access to self-service laundry facilities, and may include other amenities. They cater to short-term guests who want more than a hotel room, but not a full-size apartment.

Corporate housing is in full-size apartments with separate bedrooms, complete kitchens, and far more space and amenities than suites. Minimum stays range from one week to 30 days. ZACK Corporate Housing is located in top residential apartment buildings with on-site pools, fitness centers, and club houses, and each apartment has its own washer and dryer.

Why stay in corporate housing instead of a hotel or extended-stay suite?

Corporate housing is cost effective and convenient for extended business or leisure stays. For less than the cost of a comparable hotel, you get a roomy second home with hotel amenities and home conveniences.

1. COST EFFECTIVE

  • Less expensive than hotel rooms. ZACK's spacious apartments are less expensive per night than comparable hotel rooms. Plus, commitments of at least 30 consecutive days are exempt from required hotel/motel service taxes.
  • Fit most per diem rates for corporate, government and military travelers.
  • Complete kitchen means many meals can be prepared at home rather than paying restaurant prices.
  • Washer & dryer in each apartment saves outside laundry expenses and is more convenient than trips to a shared laundry room or dry cleaner.
  • No extra fees or hidden charges. Everything in your apartment, even digital cable TV and high-speed Internet, is included in your ZACK rental.
  • No lease agreements, security deposits, utility bills, or other responsibilities of a standard lease.

2. CONVENIENT SERVICES INCLUDED

  • Weekly housekeeping service and fresh linens leave you more time for work or relaxation
  • Reserved parking means no searching for a spot or carrying belongings long distances.
  • Informal get-togethers hosted by ZACK let you meet other extended-stay guests whose company you might enjoy for dining out, movies, sports activities or local sight-seeing.

Is there a minimum stay?

NO. ZACK works to fit your travel schedule. While primarily serving extended-stay travelers of 30 days or longer, we'll do our best to house you for shorter stays, depending on availability.

Many of our guests need both short-stay and extended-stay lodging over the course of a business engagement. For example, a project manager may need an apartment for a week while setting up a project with a client, then return later with the entire project team for an extended stay.

Can leisure travelers also stay in corporate housing?
