The entire corporate segment has evolved considerably over the past decade. Today, most corporate travelers need to complete a wide variety of assignments, which often lead to hectic schedules, late meetings, irregular eating and extended stays. As business travel has become more stressful and tiring than ever before, the needs of corporate travelers have changed radically.
I work with many business travelers and, I know exactly what a corporate guest expects from today’s accommodation options. In short, most business professionals want a good location, excellent service and hefty savings. These things, in addition to the four aspects described below, have turned The Breakers of Fort Walton Beach into one of the best places for traveling professionals in the Fort Walton area. Now, let’s find out why executives prefer The Breakers of Ft. Walton Beach over other accommodation solutions.
Space: At The Breakers of Fort Walton Beach, we offer professionally decorated one-, two- or three-bedroom condos with full-size kitchens, separate sleeping and living areas, private balconies, complete and modern furnishings and amenities. Besides providing more space, flexibility and privacy than traditional hotel rooms, our condo units are fully serviced, allowing business travelers to enjoy a truly comfortable stay, whether they come alone, with a colleague or with their families.
The main goal of most hotels, resorts, motels and other accommodation options is to provide their guests with more than just a place to stay. The Breakers of Fort Walton Beach is one of the few that have achieved this objective. Offering all the amenities business travelers enjoy at home in an inviting and practical environment, our condo units have become “homes away from home,” in every sense of the word.
Do you want to cook your own meals and eat while watching the news? You can use our kitchen facilities and community grills to enjoy home cooked food whenever you want. Cooking your own meals will also significantly reduce out-of-pocket costs, particularly for long-term stays. Do you want to watch your favorite movies and TV shows without bothering anyone? All of the rooms in our condo units are equipped with flat screen TVs and many channels. You can also use the DVD player for endless entertaining options. In addition, you get all the standard appliances, including a coffee maker, blender, toaster, microwave oven, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board.
About 38% of the traveling professionals who participated in a Skift survey said they have trouble sleeping in hotel rooms. Sleep problems are often the result of noise and uncomfortable bedding. At The Breakers, we’re aware that maintaining sleep routines is very important for a person traveling for business. Therefore, not only are our condos designed and furnished to provide a good work-life balance; some of our amenities are specifically aimed at offering the comfort our guests need in order to achieve better sleep. In a nutshell, The Breakers provides a “nice and quiet environment, [which allows business travelers] to get [the] much needed rest from work,” as one of our reviewers said.
While space, service and comfort remain the top perks for corporate guests, most of them are also “trying to take (…) good care of themselves,” says Mia Kyricos, President and CEO of Kyricos & Associates, LLC. The recent shift towards healthy living and relaxation has convinced us to rethink our “wellness” amenities. Nowadays, the corporate travelers staying at The Breakers can take a break from work and enjoy a refreshing dip in one of our two beachfront outdoor pools, rejuvenate themselves with relaxing face and body treatments at A Day Away Spa, keep up with their fitness routines in our well-equipped exercise room, relax and unwind in the sauna, and even invite their business partners to play golf at Shalimar Pointe, with the added bonus of a complimentary round, or enjoy a game of tennis at our lighted tennis courts.
A few more reasons why executives choose The Breakers for travel stay are:
- free high-speed Internet access, while most hotels charge on average $10 per day;
- free condo parking;
- 24/7-hour guest services desk, where guests can address questions about different things, including local services and area attractions.
Yes, business travel can be tiring and stressful. However, choosing the right accommodation option can help ensure a much better experience. Whether you’re relocating or just traveling for business, The Breakers of Fort Walton Beach provides one of the best accommodation solutions with a great sense of community.
