Furnished Quarters, the largest provider of temporary furnished apartments in New York City and Boston, today announced that the company will offer a new guest affinity program, Q&A Perks, as an added benefit to its Q&A Residential Hotel guests.

Business Tips: What to Wear to Work for Summer Commuting

Business Tips: What to Wear to Work for Summer Commuting

Some rejoice for the warmer weather and longer summer days, while many of us are counting down the minutes until cooler, fall temperatures arrive. Whether you’re sitting in your air-conditioned car or rushing through the subways, commuting to work while looking professional can be brutal. We’ve selected four dress tips to alleviate uncomfortable travel to the office: Dress light. Although black is classic, it is not your best friend during the summer as it will absorb the sun’s heat. Wear lighter, natural-toned colors in light fabrics. Cotton and linen are your new fabric best friends! Take it off. If your office thermostat rests at a cool 65 degrees and it’s about 80 degrees before 8am, it may be a bit difficult to plan for both. Hence, we have layers. If you’re melting in that custom fitted suit jacket, take it off. Don’t suffer another minute longer. For ladies, keep a basic, single-color sweater at the office. Long live the sneaker. Our feet naturally expand as our surroundings get warmer. Your leather wingtips or patent leather pumps are not ideal footwear during your daily commute. Now that athleisure is an actual style, go out and buy yourself a new pair of commuter sneakers. If you’re worried about looking unstylish, choose one that has a wilder color to make a statement or opt for the basic black with a modern fit. Pack your outfit. There is no rule that says you have to wear your work outfit on your way to the office. Why suffer commuting in a dress shirt and blazer when you can change at work? If you’re worried...

What is an Aparthotel?

What is an Aparthotel?

Question: What is an Aparthotel or Apartment Hotel? Answer: Well, it is exactly as it sounds: an apartment that uses a hotel-style booking system and has the great amenities you’ll find at a hotel. Instead of staying in a 325 square foot room with a bed, a desk and (if you’re lucky) a kitchenette, you’re staying in a fully equipped apartment. We understand in New York City some may try to sell you a closet and call it an apartment; however this is not always the case. At Q&A Residential Hotel, we’re offering much more. Here are some of the advantages you will find when you stay at an aparthotel like Q&A: Aparthotel Advantages Size: Aparthotel suites are much larger than hotel rooms, offering more room to live rather than just sleep. For example, at Q&A Hotel, residences start at 500 square feet and expand up to 1,400 square feet in studio, one or two bedroom configurations. To put that in perspective, most suites are around three times the size of a typical Manhattan hotel room.  Every apartment is also equipped with a full sized kitchen that is stocked with all the necessary cookware and utensils you would find in your home. Stay: A guest can stay anywhere from 1 to 29 nights. Unlike typical apartments or corporate housing, there is no need to fill out any contracts or leases while booking. An aparthotel has the exact same booking system as a hotel available for all last minute reservations or requests. Amenities: Amenities at an aparthotel are the same as a hotel. Guests can take advantage of concierge services,...
