If you travel often for work you’ve probably been to quite a few hotels in your time. And if you’ve had to stay longer than a couple of days then you know how uncomfortable extended hotel stays can be. Luckily, hotels aren’t the only option for temporary housing anymore. Now, there’s corporate housing as an option to change how you feel about business trips. 

So, what is corporate housing? Simply put, it is a more comfortable, convenient and cost-effective type of temporary housing. It’s a great option for anyone who’s planning an extended stay either alone or with their family and has many added benefits that hotels just don’t offer. Learn more about corporate housing rentals below!  

what is corporate housingWhat is Corporate Housing?

Corporate housing is a short-term housing option traditionally for business professionals on the road but is useful for anyone who needs a temporary living space. Not only is corporate housing more comfortable than staying in a hotel for an extended time, but it’s actually a more cost-effective option as well. Hotels can cost anywhere from $75-$195 a night, while corporate housing is much more affordable for extended stays. And apartments are usually only available by contract, but corporate housing is available without having to commit to a long-term lease. 

Typically, corporate temporary housing is located in apartment complexes or condominiums and is used on average for 2-3 months. They may additionally offer shorter stay times on a weekly basis for guests who don’t plan on staying too long. It’s important to note that corporate housing for rent today isn’t just a single room with a bathroom and mini-fridge on the floor. Short-term housing like this includes a full-size bathroom, kitchen and bedroom is fully furnished and feels just like home. And corporate housing comes with a suite of services and added amenities.

Who uses it?

Corporate housing was originally intended for business professionals and entrepreneurs. Still, furnished corporate apartments are greatly convenient for traveling businessmen and women, but it’s not limited to only providing an extended stay for executive associates and employees. Now that travel has ramped up for many companies, there are plenty of employees ready to work across the country and move to new places. Short-term housing is a great option for:

What are the benefits?what is corporate housing

The benefits of corporate housing are vast, from the wide range of amenities to the at-home feeling of comfort and coziness. Furnished corporate housing comes fully equipped with essential pieces like beds and dressers but also creature comforts like sofas, flat-screen televisions and modern decor. They provide soft towels, blankets, sheets, and pillows and encourage you to bring small personal items that make your temporary housing more comfortable. 

Another way corporate lodging helps you feel at home is how functional they are compared to hotels. For instance, corporate housing provides a fully equipped kitchen with all things needed to make your favorite home-cooked meals. Most short-term rentals feature a full kitchen with a variety of pots, pans, dishes and utensils. This type of short-term housing is typically located in a residential setting as opposed to hotels that are often close to major roads which can be loud at night and busy during the day. 

Like hotels, furnished corporate apartments feature an array of amenities for guests to enjoy during their stay. Many complexes have on-site fitness centers, swimming pools and spas. Like hotels, corporate lodging provides maid services as well as concierge services.

How do you choose Corporate Housing?

To choose the right corporate housing arrangement for you, start by assessing your specific needs and wants. If you’re more of an on-the-go type of person, you’ll probably want a place that is located conveniently close to where you’re working and probably has easy access to essential shopping. But if you’re more concerned about comfort than convenience, then you may want to stay somewhere with a luxurious and comfortable atmosphere.   

Everyone feels comfortable in different environments, so be sure to find the right match for you!

If you live in or near the Reno, NV area, then you’ve probably noticed the influx of people moving to our Biggest Little City – and for good reason, too. Not only is housing in Reno more affordable than other major cities nearby, but it’s also experiencing an increase of new infrastructure and offers many indoor and outdoor activities to enjoy. While there have been many misconceptions about moving to Reno, our team can honestly say it is an amazing place to live, work, and grow. See for yourself why people are deciding to leave expensive cities all throughout the United States to live in Reno, Nevada.

Increased Pricing in Adjacent States

While Reno is staying relatively affordable, residents in adjacent cities, such as San Francisco and areas in Southern California, are experiencing increasingly high costs of living. Californians have increasingly left their expensive homes in hopes of moving to a more economically stable and obtainable place. Often, that place just so happens to be Reno, Nevada. 

According to recent statistics, the rental market in Reno is about 129 percent less expensive to live in compared to San Francisco. Clearly your money is guaranteed to go farther in Reno when it comes to your home’s size and property size as well. Most San Francisco residents are living in apartments, whereas in Reno you’ll find more options for larger housing on larger properties. Executive housing in Reno is abundant too, thanks to companies with flexible and extended stay opportunities.

Job Opportunities

In recent years, Reno has become an epicenter for major technology companies such as Tesla, Panasonic, and Apple. Fortunately, that means there are an abundance of job opportunities for the Reno area. The city has seen an increase of bigger businesses bringing an influx of job opportunities for the Truckee Meadows community. The number of jobs created by Tesla only seems to be increasing in Reno, so hopefully other tech giants can feel more inclined to move here and give exciting job opportunities to locals.  

Amenities and Entertainment

Another reason people have been migrating and living in Reno is due to the tremendous amount of outdoor and indoor activities and events there are to enjoy. Being just an hour drive away from the beautiful Lake Tahoe area, there are plenty of winter and summer activities for sports enthusiasts to partake in. We have several different ski resorts close enough for anyone to enjoy during the winter months, and summers can usually be spent along one of the many beaches along the shores of Lake Tahoe. 

We also have casinos, restaurants, indoor trampoline parks, local events, art venues, theaters, kid-friendly fun centers and so much more. There’s so much fun to be had when living in the  Biggest Little City of Reno, Nevada.

extended staySunset Kayak Tours - Tahoe City 

Reno is fortunate enough to be less than an hour away from the famous Lake Tahoe which visitors flock to all year round. While the winter months tend to send chills over the Tahoe area, fall remains warm and sunny for months. Tahoe City Kayak helps extend the water sport season into the fall with their Sunset Kayak Tours which many locals call an unforgettable experience unmatched by other activities. 

The guided tour starts with you, your kayak and the open water of Lake Tahoe. Starting times will vary depending on when the sun is supposed to set that day and continues until dusk - usually lasting around an hour. This little excursion is highly recommended for novice and expert kayakers, and is a must-see for all nature lovers. Don’t forget to bring your camera along so you can savor the moment for years to come!

Outdoor Adventures at Ferrari Farms 

Ferrari Farms is a local favorite in Reno and has been a part of the community for over 100 years. During the summer months Ferrari Farms hosts one of their most popular events - Summer of Flowers, where guests can choose from 20 plus types of sunflowers to pick and photograph. Similarly, Ferrari Farms also hosts the U-Pick Vegetables event starting August where guests can bring home a variety of freshly picked veggies ranging from corn to pumpkins. 

Later in the fall season Ferrari Farms puts on their annual Fall Festival complete with a 5-acre corn maze, tractor hayrides, and Zombie Paintball in the evenings. And if you’ve ever wanted to do yoga surrounded by baby animals, look no further. Baby Goat Yoga is also incredibly popular and the experience is truly one-of-a-kind. 

Fall Fishing

Reno’s close proximity to Lake Tahoe, the Truckee River, Donner Lake, and more make it the ideal location for fall fishing. Many Reno residents are avid fishers and the abundance of natural water resources provide plenty of entertainment to them. Whether you’re interested in fly fishing, shore fishing, or boat fishing, we’ve got it all. Try fly fishing in the Truckee River at the designated catch and release area, or charter a fishing boat to catch some lake trout, rainbow trout, and kokanee salmon. 

Autumn Leaf Peeping 

If you’re like many others, the changing of the leaves probably makes you want to grab your camera and capture the beautiful fall colors. And if that sounds like you, then you should join the Reno community for leaf peeping in the park! Leaf peeping is similar to bird watching in which naturists will travel to spots where leaves change color in the fall so they can look at and take photos of the beautiful fall foliage. Check out Callahan Park, Mayberry Park, the Reno Riverwalk District, and Rancho San Rafael for the best views! 

Salmon at Taylor Creek

There are other ways for you to experience the full spectrum of fall colors near Reno. South Lake Tahoe is home to Taylor Creek, a popular sight-seeing spot known for its kokanee salmon. While many people enjoy recreational fishing, most visitors come to this spot just to look at the beautiful colors of the salmon! Starting in late August, kokanee salmon begin their spawning season during which their scales turn a bright, deep red color to attract a partner. This, combined with the changing leaves and Lake Tahoe landscaping makes for a breathtaking sight to behold.

The price of an apartment has skyrocketed in recent years. Not to mention they generally require you to be locked into a long term lease, which is less than ideal in our quickly moving and ever-changing world. On top of that, there are usually strict guidelines to follow and the parking situation is often a mess. Then you have to furnish your new apartment which can be costly, especially for families. Fortunately, we have the solution to all of these concerns. 


Advantages of Short Term Housing

andles, and silverware. There is granite kitchen in the background." width="541" height="361" />

You may have heard of corporate housing, also known as short term housing, but what you may not have known is that it’s not just for traveling businessmen and women. Short term housing offers a wide range of advantages not only to business professionals, but to families, college students, and anyone who’s only traveling somewhere new for a brief time. Check them out below.

Ease of Moving-In

Corporate housing makes moving easy, which is great news for anyone. CHC has elegantly furnished each unit to make you and your family feel more comfortable. Not only does this save you money on expensive pieces of furniture that you’ll have to lug around once you move, but it also gives your temporary home the feeling of home. Comfort for our guests is one of our biggest priorities. With that said, we also provide soft sheets and towels of the highest quality, and have equipped the kitchen with whatever you may need to make your favorite home-cooked meal.

No Long Term Lease

Another reason short term housing may be a good living arrangement for you is having the flexibility to move at any time. If you’ve ever lived in an apartment you probably know that they require you to sign a long-term lease agreement of at least a year. But, some of us aren’t sure what we’re going to be doing in a year, and committing to such a long-term lease could feel restricting. And to break your lease early usually costs a pretty penny and results in you having to forfeit your deposit. However, with short term leasing opportunities, you have the freedom to move on whenever you’re ready. And even better, it costs absolutely nothing to do so.

Greater Availability

Not only are apartments somewhat expensive and restrictive, they’re also hard to come by. Places like Reno, Nevada are vastly growing their communities, which has limited availability of open apartments. This limited availability often makes apartments more expensive and sometimes unaffordable. Apartments are often competing with families and students who are looking to stay long term, which can hurt your chances of getting the apartment you want. Corporate housing has much more availability than apartments and can accommodate families, college students, and more!

Kind and Friendly Service

Most people find that their apartment complex does very little in regard to their services. It usually takes days or even weeks to get anyone to help you with a leaky faucet and the office staff rarely seems helpful in problematic situations. If you decide to Stay with CHC you can expect to get high-quality assistance from our friendly staff. We’re here to help make your stay more comfortable, and we’re always happy to be able to give our guests a great experience with us.

The Weather in Reno

Reno lends itself to the unpredictability of the desert climate. A typical summer day in Reno can start hot and perfectly clear, but can quickly turn to thundershowers without a moment’s notice. And, just like the warmer months, winter and autumn in Reno can be wildly unpredictable. Don’t be surprised to find yourself stuck in a flash snowstorm that crept over the Sierras.

The average high’s in Reno are around 92 degrees during the months of June, July, and August. On the flip side, the average lows reach a chilly 21 degrees around December and January. Bring your beanies!

The Different Sections of Reno

It may take you a while to understand the culture and feel connected with your new home. Here’s a quick rundown of the city. For each section we've also included a handful of favorite spots to hit.



Even if you’ve only seen a bit of the city in pictures or videos, the bit you’ve probably seen is of Downtown Reno. This is the place where most of the excitement happens!

Bars, casinos, fine dining, theatre, and entertainment all centered around the Truckee River. Even Reno's own baseball team, the Reno Aces, have their stadium located downtown. When you're downtown you won’t be hard-pressed to find something to do.

Downtown also has plenty of metro areas to make getting to and from downtown a breeze.

Things to do in Downtown Reno:
things to do in reno
  1. Circus Circus: A great place to go with or without kids. Circus Circus has a whole section of carnival games, shows, and prizes. If you’re feeling lucky, take a chance at the adjoining El Dorado with their hundreds of slots and gambling machines. Don’t forget to check in frequently to see which famous band or comedian is performing.
  2. Java Jungle: There are many great bars and coffee shops in Reno. But Java Jungle is one of the few that is both. Half café, half barroom, Java Jungle has excellently mixed cocktails, beer, food, and wine. While you're at it, hop across the street to Noble Pie for a slice of some late night pizza.
  3. Wingfield Park: The place for outdoor activity. Wingfield park has been described as the oasis of Reno. Nestled along the Truckee River, you’ll find basketball and tennis courts, bike paths, picnic tables, and an amphitheater for summer concerts and events. When the weather is fine you'll find the citizens of Reno cruising down the Truckee River.



Just south of Downtown, Midtown has been developing into a diverse mix of unique stores and small business. On a typical walk through Midtown you’ll come across beautiful murals and old Victorian homes converted to small businesses. Midtown is also home to many local craft beer breweries offering one-of-a-kind beverages that you can't find anywhere else. Stop by any of Reno's local bars to sample!

Tucked along a side street in Midtown, this quaint shop is filled with a plethora of taxidermy, bones, and exotic plants. You’ll find every nook brimming with ethically sourced specimens, fossils, and other oddities.


Northern Reno

If you head north from the center of Reno you'll start to notice the area start to resemble that of other college towns. As you head farther north you'll notice the Reno skyline begin to take shape. In the daytime, you'll find the scale of the snow-capped Sierra Nevada to be incredibly beautiful. Likewise, at night the buildings of Downtown Reno will light up into a stunning spectrum of neon colors.

Places of Northern Reno
relocating to reno
  1. University of Nevada, Reno: Directly north of Downtown Reno is the UNR campus, home of the Wolf Pack. Lush green expanses and huge trees surround the campus and quad. Plenty of events are held at the UNR campus. From presentations on the scientific and educational studies to the huge Reno Jazz festival. 
  2. Reno Rodeo: If you’re looking for a taste of country culture then the Reno Rodeo is the place to be. Cattle drive and bull riding events are weekly events at the Reno Rodeo.
  3. Rancho San Rafael Regional Park: One of the largest parks in Reno. Over 600 acres of trails, greenery, playground and picnicking. If your dog is comfortable with other off-leash dogs, then let your furry friend run around the huge dedicated dog park area. During the early days of September, the entire park becomes home to the Great Reno Balloon Races, one of the largest hot air balloon events in the United States.


Moving to the Outskirts of Reno

Not only does Reno have an incredible range of activities, but it's also located near many other great places. Each area that surrounds Reno has its own unique personality and fun things to do. While living in Reno, you'll have access to so many wonderful places to explore. Here are just a few!


Often mistaken as a part of Reno, Sparks is actually about half of the area that people consider Reno. Notable locations in the Reno-Sparks area include the Nugget Casino, The Outlets at Legends, and the Marina.

Spanish Springs

Spanish Springs is the suburban side of the bustling city of Reno. Just a short 25-minute drive from the north of Reno will lead you to this wonderful expanse of Ranch style real estate. In the Summer months, you’ll find plenty of people tinkering in open garages or enjoying the warm evening breeze.

Lake Tahoe

Trying to write a little blurb on Lake Tahoe is harder than you think. There’s so much to do! Too many Nevadans, the sapphire-blue waters of Lake Tahoe are a tropical escape only two hours away. You’ll find both locals and vacationers taking advantage of the golden beaches and warm water. Common activities include jet skiing, paddle boarding, kayaking, and even parasailing. Lake Tahoe is also known for its many hiking trails. If you’re feeling adventurous, take a hike to one of Lake Tahoe’s many hidden lakes.

In the winter months, skiing and snowboarding become the big the pastime. Skiing resorts like Squaw Valley and Heavenly at Stateline will become flooded with avid snow-sport enthusiasts. You’ll also find casual-goers snowshoeing and cross-country skiing the snow-ridden trails of Tahoe.

Virginia City

Virginia City is perfect if you want a taste of the old West. A small church nestled on a hill, old Victorian architecture, and a graveyard are just a few historical landmarks that you’ll see.

smarter cities challenge, housing in renoThe Reno area isn’t just a destination for winter sports enthusiasts and businesses. When summer rolls around, art and music festivals, farmer’s markets, rodeos, and sporting events are just a handful of things available, thanks to some very dedicated people.

Reno’s city planners and officials have been engaging in revitalization projects since the 1990s. The Reno Revitalization has taken huge steps in beautifying the downtown area considerably since then, but they’ve realized it’s going to take more than just a few coats of paint and updated roads to improve the quality of life for the residents and attract a new clientele to the city.

Despite our cities overall success, sometimes what’s really needed is a fresh perspective to evaluate how a city is performing in today’s economy.

As a way to address this, IBM developed the Smarter Cities Challenge. The challenge assesses critical issues cities face by deploying a team to engage with the population, analyze factors such as: education, economy, health, local government, use of assets etc; and recommend ways to improve the city. Essentially, the intent is to gauge if cities are using their resources effectively.

In 2012, The University of Nevada, Reno and the City of Reno, was 1 out of only 33 cities to participate in the challenge with IBM. And, in early 2013, Reno completed their challenge.

According to Reno’s IBM Smarter Cities Challenge, the following was reported. The serious issues were: education, a highly skilled workforce and a thriving local economy. Some areas for improvement were: efficient citizen services, local government enabling processes, efficient use of assets and public safety.

However, the report also showed that the city was performing well within the areas of: dependable and appropriate transportation, high-speed connectivity, sustainable utilities, healthy citizens, a sustainable environment and support for an aging population.

In order to turn things around, the report recommended: changing the mindset of the populous through collaboration, present a singular economic voice, build a system to support economic development and present a single regional identity.

Since IBM began this initiative in 2012, only one hundred cities have been selected to receive grants and participate.

Tesla's Gigafactory Will Bring Numerous Opportunities to Reno

Well the news is out and Reno has been chosen as the new location for Tesla’s Gigafactory.

Over the past few months there has been a lot of speculation about the large construction project near the Reno-Stead Airport. But Tesla’s announcement with Governor Sandoval is confirmation of the new site and proves that Northern Nevada is a major player in our nation’s economy and has a lot to offer.

Tesla’s new factory will manufacture lithium-ion batteries for their upcoming Model 3s and will require an additional 6,500 employees to operate the 10-million square foot facility. While this site is sure to help bring jobs, it’s also sure to increase the need for temporary and corporate housing services in Northern Nevada as families and workers influx the area.

Looking at the numbers, here’s how Tesla could help

According the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Nevada’s unemployment rate is the third-highest in the country at 7.7%. The additional 6,500 jobs that Tesla needs to perform operations at the new site wouldn’t just help ease the unemployed and underemployed, but it would reinforce the notion that Reno’s economy isn’t just dependent on gambling and casinos.

Reno Corporate Housing

We’re not just smiling faces and neon-lighted places.

Reno was in competition with other site locations that were being constructed in states like Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. But it’s hard to imagine that our short driving distance from Teslas’ headquarters in Palo Alto, California is what sold them on choosing us. Our businesses are booming here, and we’re not just talking about the Comstock days either! Apple is building their new data center here, our state was just approved for drone testing and companies like Amazon and Barnes and Noble already have facilities in the area. Tesla’s confirmation on building a large scale facility in Reno speaks volumes about what the city, the people, and the state offer.

Our ability to provide you with Reno corporate housing locations is second-to-none. So when you find yourself looking for temporary corporate housing in Carson City, Reno, Sparks or anywhere else, let us help! From more information about the Gigafactory coming to Reno check out form Tesla here.

Nevada Shade Week is growing one tree at a time.

UNR's Arboretum Board teams up with the City of Reno to earn the title "Tree Campus USA."
UNR’s Arboretum Board and the City of Reno are celebrating Nevada Shade Week by planting a variety of trees around the school to benefit children at the Child and Family Research Center on Saturday, October 25.

The event was created in an effort to help communities build sustainable urban forests for future generations. This will expand the university’s arboretum, which is defined as a site where trees are deliberately cultivated for scientific, educational, and aesthetic purposes according to John Claudius Loudon. The campus represents over 200 species of tree on campus.

Fraternity students from Phi Delta Theta volunteered to help plant the 12 trees this Saturday. The trees are being planted near the playground and were donated by the Urban and Community Forestry Program through a grant from the and-community-forest/">Nevada Division of Forestry. Each tree will be about 40 feet tall and range from Gala Apple trees, Northern Red Oak trees, Catalpa Umbrella trees, and many other shaded beauties. These trees will provide shade as well as learning opportunities for the children at the Child and Family Research Center.

Tree CampusChild and Family Research Center

The central message from the event is about taking care of the Reno community. The Child and Family Research center on campus was developed for the purpose of a safe and nurturing environment for students, faculty and staff, and families who meet the federal poverty guidelines. The goal of the program is to prepare students who may not otherwise have the opportunity to succeed. The children will help take care of the trees after they are planted in an effort to help them reduce anxiety and tension. Research shows nature helps alleviate stress.

Tree Campus USA

The other goal is to earn UNR the label “Tree Campus USA.” The university was recognized as a state arboretum in 1985 and the next step is be acknowledged by the Arbor Day Foundation. The requirements for earning the title “Tree Campus USA” are to demonstrate a commitment to the care and health of trees in their community. The message is clear that we can always do more to improve our communities while reinvigorating our relationship with nature.  The university’s service project, sponsored by the Nevada Division of Forestry and supported by the Arboretum Board and the City of Reno, will meet the qualifications needed to be a certified Tree Campus USA.
