With a rich history of industrialisation in the 20th century, Bedford has developed a variety of industrial activities such as brick making. Currently, Bedford is divided into ten organisational structures, referred to as ‘wards’, and it is part of a larger structure called Bedford Urban Area, with the municipalities of Biddenham, Elstow, and Kempston.
Also, during the 20th and 21st century, there has been intense immigration, which resulted in a diverse population that developed a cosmopolitan culture in Bedford. Its ethnical components include people of Asian, Italian, and Eastern European origin.
As a vibrant town, Bedford often attracts companies and corporations, as well as employees of these companies in the process of relocation. No matter how long these people need to stay in Bedford, whether short and long-term, they can choose between several accommodation options.
Corporate Housing vs Hotels
Yes, both corporate housing and hotels offer a bed, a TV and a private bathroom – but the similarities end there. Hotels cannot match the price point at which corporate housing provides comfort and amenities. Here are the main differences between the two types of accommodations:
1 – Luxury living with first class amenities
Things that corporate housing often offers and hotels do not:
- Pools, gyms, and/or fitness centre
- Full-sized washer and dryer
- Onsite mail delivery
- Fully equipped kitchen and dining room
- Private balcony with chairs
Corporate housing will offer upscale amenities to your company’s employees, as well as all the standard amenities you can find in hotels, such as Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, comfortable king bed, etc.
2- Spacious Rooms
Corporate housing (or corporate lets) are created with the highest standards. The rooms are spacious and well furnished – with everything needed to make your employee feel at home. Examples of spacious rooms typically found in corporate lets are a master bedroom, a separate living room, a full kitchen, a separate dining room, a private bathroom, and even extra rooms for leisure.
