Contrary to popular opinion, furnished apartments aren’t your standard hotel arrangement. In fact, they offer much more than you may have in mind. The next time you’re scheduled to take an extended business trip and your boss suggests booking traditional hotel accommodations, inquire as to whether your company will cover the cost of a furnished apartment. In what follows, we detail four ways you can benefit from furnished apartments in Toronto. In turn, we hope to shed light on this ideal short- and long-term accommodation type.
1. Refrigerator in the apartment
Whether you plan on cooking during your stay or not, an apartment refrigerator allows you to always have food within easy reach. One benefit is that a refrigerator encourages healthy eating since you can cook your own meals. Moreover, keeping groceries at your place is more cost-efficient than spending money on expensive meals. You can benefit from our grocery service, which provides you with groceries stocked up in your fridge in time for your arrival. If you’d like to purchase your own food, there are many grocery stores nearby to the properties.
2. Minimal housekeeping
There is no doubt that a clean living space leads to increased contentment and a more productive day. In comparison to other furnished suite providers who perform housekeeping once every 2 weeks, Mary-am Suites provides weekly housekeeping. Given that Mary-am Suites are quite spacious, we understand that you may have a lot of belongings to spread around. Thus, routine housekeeping ensures that your place is always tidy and spotless.
3. Chance to do your laundry more frequently
The benefits keep on coming! Traditional hotels have laundry services but this can get costly and you will need to have coins handy. Instead, many furnished apartments include a mini washer and dryer. This allows you to wash your clothes anytime you’d like for free (all you will need to supply is the detergent).
4. Enjoy building amenities
Luxury at your fingertips with countless amenities. The building may include hotel-like amenities such as a fitness facility and swimming pool – can it get any better? This accommodates those individuals that don’t want to travel far from the building for leisure activities. Further, these amenities are ideal for those travelling with other family members that want convenient leisure options.
Our hearts go out to all those who have been affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. Rest assured that we are closely monitoring the situation and taking steps to protect our team members and guests as the situation continues to evolve.
Our first step was to invoke our Business Continuity Plan. We are entirely digital and do not rely on any manual processes. We are also completely cloud-based and diversified through our use of Amazon AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure. Our office team is mobile-ready and has access to all critical infrastructure, including our cloud-based phone and booking systems. Rest assured - we are prepared to continue serving you.
For any new reservations booked directly with us, and until April 30, 2020, the booking can be cancelled at any time before arrival and with no cancellation fee.
Toronto Public Health announced enhanced measures to protect the public on March 13, 2020, and are currently in effect until April 5, 2020. Anyone who has travelled from anywhere outside Canada, including the United States, is asked to self-isolate and avoid contact with others for 14 days.
For All Stays
Weekly Touch Up Service
For your safety and ours, weekly touch up service is cancelled until April 30, 2020. We encourage guests to utilize the ensuite washer and dryer to launder their linens and towels. For guests wishing to receive fresh linens, please send a request through Guest Services, and we will arrange to pick up your used linens (left in a bag at the front door inside the suite) and drop off fresh linen for you to use.
Our Commitment to High Cleaning Standards
We have always utilized commercial hospitality-grade cleaning procedures and supplies. We use specialized chemicals for different surfaces to ensure optimal disinfection. We also use new gloves and separate microfibre cleaning cloths for each suite to prevent cross-contamination. Any linens or cleaning cloths supplies by us have been professionally sanitized at a large commercial laundry facility.
Suite Visits by Guest Services & Maintenance
Until April 30, 2020, we will not conduct any suite tours for prospective guests, nor will any of our Maintenance or Guest Services team members visit occupied suites for any issues other than those relating to essential services.
We recognize that these are challenging times. Like many before it, this too will pass, and together we will get through it. Know that we are working around the clock to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable stay. We remain at your service 24/7 should you have any questions or concerns.
