BUSINESS TRIPS: NO MORE NEED TO CHOOSE BETWEEN HOTEL AND APARTMENT!
Renting an apartment is becoming an increasingly common option for business trips, especially those lasting several days or weeks. What could be nicer, though, than keeping your home habits and your independence? Only, this option generally raises some concerns. Is the apartment true to its description on the Internet? Where and how do you pick up the keys? Will it be possible to work there efficiently? Sweet Inn provides clear answers to all of these questions by combaning the best aspects of hotel accommodation and short-term apartment rental in a single product. Discover a new concept of accommodation in sync with the needs of the business travellers.
In a world where professional and private life are increasingly tending to merge, the needs of the business traveller can be summarised in four words: security, simplicity, availability and service. With Sweet Inn, you are permanently guaranteed to find one of our teams wherever you are, to help at every second. We assign you a Guest Relation agent to welcome you to your new apartment, give you the best spots in the area and recommend outings for your free time. And, unlike collaborative reservations platforms, our apartments belong solely to Sweet Inn and not to private individuals. Therefore, each one is insured and in keeping with security regulations (safe, fire extinguisher etc.), just like a hotel. All of this helps you to sleep safe and sound, even when far from home.
Feel at home
Away from the workplace, the business traveller is a man or woman like any other. Once the workday has ended, it’s impossible to escape the longing for home comforts. Feel like relaxing on the sofa? Drinking a cup of coffee at the foot of the bed? Preparing toasted slices of bread and butter in front of your favourite news channel? With a completely furnished kitchen (including utensils, refrigerator, microwave, toaster and dishwasher) and a comfortable and spacious interior, Sweet Inn apartments allow you to keep your habits even away from home.
The cherry on the cake? Each apartment, carefully renovated and decorated by local interior designers, possesses its own character in accordance with the atmosphere and history of its location.
Get the benefits of a hotel
Even if they are happy with their apartment, business travellers might be frustrated not to find in it the products they are used to in luxury hotels. With Sweet Inn, you can enjoy both the comfort of an apartment and the benefits of a hotel. Each apartment is equipped with top-of-the-range bedding and linen, L’Occitane products, a Nespresso machine and high-speed wifi. And, as in every classy hotel, guests are provided with a concierge and central lobby experience (relaxation area, Business Centre, luggage room etc.). But the lobby isn’t a must. Travellers can also choose to arrive directly at the apartment where they will be welcomed by a Sweet Inn Guest Relations agent. There, they will find a business “essentials” kit to help them work with complete peace of mind: paper, envelopes, pens, a USB stick and a back-up battery.
Choose the right location
Location is generally the primary consideration for business travellers. But there are two types: the traveller who prefers to stay in the town centre, and the traveller who prefers to stay near his work-meeting venue. Sweet Inn gives you both options. Do you need to be in the European Quarter in Brussels, the Champs Elysées in Paris, Plaza Catalunya in Barcelona or the Colosseum in Rome? Whatever your ideal location, everything is walking distance from your apartment. By enabling you to get around as easily as possible, we reduce the length of your journeys. For a schedule that’s often tight, this extra time is more than necessary.
Design a business trip tailor-made for you
Nowadays, nothing is more fashionable than customisation. In the travel sector, this issue is at the heart of every discussion. Sweet Inn understands this and allows the business traveller to customise his or her stay with individualised services. On simple demand, our local teams can organise transfers to/from the airport, meal deliveries to your door, ironing services, daily housekeeping and more. We have also established a number of professional partnerships in each city. These give you access to fitness rooms, beauty salons, guided tours and golf courses. We’re warning you, though- it will be hard to hold back from extending your stay, be it for a few hours or even a few days!
Make your stay a more social one
Nostalgic for those wonderful years of apartment-sharing? What about staying with your whole team under the same roof? Thanks to Sweet Inn, this possibility has taken on a new meaning. Whether you prefer a double, triple or multi-room apartment, you decide which arrangement best suits you and your colleagues. You’ll be able to share fun-filled dinners and easily organise work meetings or nights in to watch the football. Some apartments even have several beds in the same room- ideal for limiting travelling expenses without forgoing individual space and comfort.
