Why serviced apartments are better than hotels during Covid-19

We’ve always been an advocate for serviced apartments over hotel rooms, for obvious reasons. During the recent pandemic and spate of lockdowns, the benefits of choosing a spacious serviced apartment over a cramped hotel room have become even clearer.  Aside from the extra space offered by apartments and suites, we also have so many extra facilities to make your life easier and far more comfortable. Here are just some of the many reasons to choose a serviced apartment over a hotel in Manchester.

Why Would You Need a Serviced Apartment in a Pandemic?

There are so many reasons for travel, even in times when it is discouraged. We don’t just cater to holidaymakers and tourists, we also have space for essential and front line workers, those needing to isolate or shield vulnerable family members, those who need to stay close to hospitals for access to family members who are patients, those who are travelling intercity or overseas for essential work, those undergoing medical treatment, those relocating to Manchester and long term guests who have lived with us for over one month. During lockdown, we do require evidence of a valid reason to stay in our serviced apartments In order to protect the safety of our guests and staff.

Better Space

The biggest and most obvious benefit of choosing an apartment with us over a traditional hotel stay is the extra space. We’re asked to stay indoors as much as so make sure you have as much indoor space as possible. Don’t keep yourself cramped in a single hotel room. Choose a suite which has one or two bedrooms, a separate living and dining space, a fully equipped kitchen and plenty of storage so you’re not tripping over your luggage. The extra space offered by serviced apartments is especially useful for those relocating to Manchester with space to store boxes and belongings and still enjoy a comfortable living arrangement. Best of all, our two bedroom apartments have two separate bathrooms, ideal for isolation or those who like extra privacy.

Better Facilities

When you choose a suite instead of a hotel room, you are giving yourself a literal home from home for your stay. Nothing is compromised and you can still expect the highest standards of cleanliness, guest care and attention, hygiene and service. We also offer a lot more facilities in each suite. In home facilities include:

• A fully equipped kitchen (not a kitchenette) including an oven & hob and all plates, cutlery and cooking utensils you might need.

• A fridge and freezer, perfect to store food and drink safely and stock up on your favourites meaning fewer trips to the supermarket. 

• A personal washer/dryer inside your apartment, not in a communal space to be shared with other guests.

• Weekly linen/towel change

• Weekly service cleans for stays over seven nights or a more frequent service can be arranged at your request.

• Welcome pack on arrival including tea, coffee & biscuits.

• An in-room safe to secure and personal belongings free of charge

• Paul Costelloe Toiletries

Our facilities include access to our PREMIER SUITES Life initiative, helping you to continue a fitness and wellness routine while away from home, a grocery delivery service, access to our guest loyalty programmes and restaurant delivery services. Nothing is too much to ask of our friendly staff and if we can assist in any way, we will. If you are isolating in your suite, simply request anything you need from our team and we will deliver it to you safely.
