There are advantages to hosting corporate travelers in your short-term rentals. You get high-quality guests. You can offer a number of upsells. And capitalize on referrals and repeat business.
But you may have to level up your game in order to attract these high-paying corporate clients.
So, what amenities do you need to offer business travelers? What level of service do they expect? And how do you market your Airbnbs to the corporate travel niche?
Robertin Nunez is the STR corporate travel specialist behind LivingQuarters.net, a platform that connects short-term rental hosts with business travelers.
With headquarters in Philadelphia and Miami, Robertin owns 100 in-house units and operates 3,200 listings in 12 cities around the world.
