Hotel vs Condo: What’s Best for the Business Traveler

Have you ever wished there was an instructional manual for booking your business trip? You’re not alone. When it comes to booking a business trip, finding the right place to stay can be one of the most stressful steps. 

Business travelers need to balance cost, comfort, and location, all while finding a place that’s work-friendly and flexible to your needs. Hotels have long been the go-to choice for business trips, but the recent rise in alternative options has seen more business travelers choosing condos for their comfort and convenience. 

Condos are a smart choice for savvy travelers. They offer more perks and privacy than traditional hotels while providing many of the same great amenities. Before you book your next business trip, here’s why a condo may be your best choice.


Where hotels are usually a single constricted space, condos offer all the comforts of home. Their spacious designs include living spaces, kitchens, balconies, and more, giving you room to stretch out during your stay. They’re an especially good choice for those who bring their families along! 

Cooking options.

Many business travelers have to budget for daily meals. Condos can lighten this expense by offering fully equipped kitchens where you can cook cost-efficient dishes on demand. You can even balance your calorie budget with healthy options that don’t break the bank!


Hotel rooms may be private, but their paper-thin walls are well known for alerting you to every sneeze and squabble that happens next door. Condos are much more spacious, making it harder for sounds to drift from one unit to the next.

Fitness Center

Amazing amenities.

Condos offer some amazing amenities to help you take the stress out of your trip. Many include perks like free WiFi, private balconies, cleaning services, on-site staff, fitness centers, and more. Some facilities even offer additional amenities like grocery delivery or concierge services for a trip that’s tailored to your needs!
