My good friend Lauren called me last night, telling me how much she hates her apartment and has to move. But the thing is, she just moved to Los Angeles, California, a month ago, and already she bemoans not having had more time to scope out apartments. Moving to a new city can be difficult, but knowing where you’re going to spend those first few nights doesn’t have to be.
I was reminded of what my dad recommended three years ago when I first mentioned I was moving to Orlando, Florida. He suggested I check out Extended Stay Hotels.
At the time, I had pictured the worst: vagabonds who were temporarily upgrading and other unsavories. He assured me I was wrong. (Dad, now you can say it: “I told you so.”)
Extended Stay Hotels are designed for business travelers and other people seeking value for longer stays. And, these hotels are the perfect option for those moving to a new city. Each has a kitchen, so you can save money on meals, coffee and more.
Check out this map of Extended Stay Hotels located throughout the United States:
Notice how these hotels are in most states. And my dad was right: There’s an Extended Stay Property in Maitland, Florida, that’s a three-minute drive from the house I reside in now. It definitely would have been easier to move to a new city having a safety net.
