FOR BUSINESS – Our main specialty is matching business travelers to corporate apartments. Houston has one of the densest populations of corporate headquarters in the world. From BP and Conoco to Sysco and Waste Management. We are home to some of the world’s best-known brands. And with this, comes a high-volume of business travelers and the need for furnished short-term housing. Sometimes, for a short-stay of 30 days. Sometimes, for a long-stay of 3 months, or even longer. Whatever the need, we can help. We have over 100 fully furnished business apartment rentals across the city and suburbs. Contact our leasing department today and start saving time and money on your housing needs.
EXECUTIVE – Looking for corporate housing, except a little more upscale? Blu has it. Sometimes, because of the difficulty of displaying up-to-date housing inventory, we don’t list our luxury rentals on the site. But rest assured, we do have luxury housing. If you or your client are seeking a furnished executive rental, please contact sales and advise them of your desired location, size, and budget.
ECONOMY – Similar to executive housing, we typically don’t list our full inventory of economy lodging. We find the furnished rentals at both the economy and luxury end of the spectrum aren’t in as high of demand, so we typically leave them off the site. However, we do have them available. These are typically the types of furnished rentals utilized for construction workers, oilfield employees, and other manual labor workforces. If your company is looking for furnished economy rentals for your work crews, contact one of our furnished leasing agents today.
