The last few years have seen an interesting trend, with executive rentals gradually chipping away at the market dominance of business hotels. And it's easy to see why. In a hotel, no matter how luxurious, there's always the feeling that you're there temporarily. It's a place to stay, rather than a place to be. Temporary, fleeting. Rooms rarely feature cooking options beyond a kettle, and it's difficult to fully relax into the space.
A serviced apartment, on the other hand, is designed to feel like home-away-from-home. The focus is on creature comforts, and on recreating all the mod-cons you're used to while you're away. Instead of a kettle and minibar, you can enjoy full kitchen facilities, for example.
What is an executive rental?
In short, an executive rental is a property - usually an apartment or condominium - that's rented for a short period by a corporate entity. They represent the cross-section between the convenience of a hotel, and the creature comforts present in a private apartment. Executive rentals - you may also see the term corporate lettings - are the ideal accommodation for a working visit to another city or country, whether this is a few days to attend a conference or a few months to complete a project.
The appeal of executive rentals for corporate clients is the convenience, comfort, and the ever-increasing range of options available. At Dolphin Square, we offer short let executive rentals to fit the needs of any corporate traveller.
What to expect from a Dolphin House executive rental
An executive rental should let your work continue to a high standard without any interruption. All the amenities required for work should be present, along with creature comforts and facilities that enable rest, recharging, and relaxation. Here's a taste of what you'll find at Dolphin Square.
The modern world relies on high-quality, reliable, and instant connectivity. As an executive traveller, you'll be plugged into various networks, and you need to be sure that these connections will be seamless and uninterrupted Dolphin House serviced apartments offer full WiFi access throughout, so you don't need to worry about being disconnected.
Our beds have luxurious Egyptian cotton bed linen and Hypnos pocket-sprung mattresses to ensure a good night sleep. The lounge area has comfortable sofas and LCD flat-screen TVs. The pantry style kitchen offers the appliances needed to create your culinary favourites.
Our goal here is luxury and comfort. We want you to feel like you're home-from-home, and that you can fully relax into this space. Getting home after a hard day at work is one of life's little pleasures, and there's no reason you should sacrifice this just because you're travelling for business.
Each of our apartments is lovingly designed to be immediately inviting and welcoming. Unlike a hotel room that can feel clinical and anonymous, stepping foot into a Dolphin Square apartment is designed to feel like stepping through your own front door.
After a long day at the office, there's nothing quite like a spa treatment to help you unwind. The Spa at Dolphin Square offers a range of treatments including salt infused steam, manicures, facials, and all manner of relaxing and restorative massages.
On-site gym and fitness centre
Or maybe you prefer a hard workout to a deep relax? If so, we've got you covered. The DSQ Gym offers a fully equipped gymnasium, alongside a beautiful pool (complete with sauna and steam rooms). There are also squash and tennis courts, studios, and even a croquet lawn. We offer an expansive timetable of classes as well, everything from yoga, to spin classes, to HIIT body training. Whatever your physical fix, you can satisfy it at the DSQ gym, just a short walk from your apartment.
Although each apartment comes with kitchen facilities, sometimes there's nothing better than a restaurant dinner. And with the Dolphin Square Bar & Grill on your doorstep, world-class cuisine is always on hand. Our menu celebrates great British cooking, elevating it to the level it deserves. You'll find everything from fish and chips, to fillet steaks, to lobster linguine, all complemented by a hand-picked wine list. A meal here is guaranteed to impress your colleagues.
