Why Choose Short-Term Rental Housing Over a Hotel?
If you're planning on being in the Boston area for a month or two, a short-term apartment can make you feel more comfortable than a hotel – and that an important consideration if you or a loved one is visiting the area to receive care at one of Boston's hospitals.
For one thing, an apartment feels more like home. You'll have your own kitchen to prepare meals, which is much more satisfying than the typical continental breakfast served in hotels each morning. Plus, its a major money-saving advantage and a big benefit if medical treatment calls for special dietary or nutritional needs.
An overlooked advantage? Many short-term rental housing options are pet friendly. Not all extended-stay hotels welcome cats and dogs, and finding a pet sitter while you're in Boston could be a costly hassle. In a pet friendly short-term apartment, you'll also be able to enjoy your pets companionship during your stay.
One of the biggest advantages is cost. Short-term apartment rents are priced based on the month, and not at a daily rate that can run upwards of $100. If you're planning to stay in the Boston area for more than a week or two, short-term rental apartments like those at Vox on Two can often be a more affordable option while giving you and your family extra space during your stay. The extra space can also make it easier for family members to visit during treatment.
