BridgeStreet is now aligning with the hospitality giant to expand their newly unveiled Airbnb for Business product suite offerings to BridgeStreet's well-established client base."Long term travellers want more than just access to a place to lay their head, they want to get to know their city, neighbourhood bookshop, best place for coffee, live like a local, whether that means staying in a Victorian home in San Francisco or a loft in Paris," said Chip Conley, head of hospitality, Airbnb."BridgeStreet is an incredible company to work with to help give any person from any company a truly unique experience when they are travelling for business. ""BridgeStreet constantly maintains a pulse on travellers' habits to identify how we can better serve their needs," noted Sean Worker, BridgeStreet Global Hospitality chief executive officer."BridgeStreet is a leader in the corporate housing and serviced apartment sector, and we viewed Airbnb as a natural choice to link up with, as they have certainly helped redefine the travel industry. Through our partnership, we will strategically position our services to Airbnb's untapped corporate travel audience, while we offer a broader array of experiences to our client base – it's incredibly intuitive."Airbnb offers value to the business traveller by providing extra space, often with a kitchen and office, or other amenities. Additionally Airbnb's are situated throughout a city so long term travellers can get to know the ins and outs of a neighbourhood before deciding to settle down.The two brands aim to offer guests an array of options to fit any business travel budget, style or need, from the consistency of BridgeStreet's six distinct brand tiers, to a memorable, localised accommodations experience like a house boat."This is an interesting partnership that will close the gap in introducing shared economy services to a managed corporate program. Both Airbnb and BridgeStreet are creative thinkers that are clearly defining choice for the modern traveller, who are seeking quality and value," said Michelle De Costa Senior Category Strategist, Procurement, Liberty Mutual Insurance. "And those are two concepts that are not often used in the same sentence."For more Re:locate news and features about serviced apartments, click hereFor more information on BridgeStreet Global Hospitality, visit: www.bridgestreet.com.
