New Service Helps Business Travelers Avoid Dreaded Bad Hotel Room

RoomoramaThe best thing about business travel is the ability to make face-to-face contact with new and existing clients. The downside? Getting stuck in a dingy hotel room with a flowered bedspread and dripping faucet.

When Jia En Teo and Federico Folcia launched Roomorama.com 2 1/2 years ago, their intent was simple–provide leisure travelers with a safe, clean and luxurious place to stay without breaking the bank. Through a new service launched by the online company, dedicated specifically to business travelers, executives will now have the ability to select and book short-term rentals in nearly 300 worldwide destinations.

Roomorama’s "Business Concierge" helps business travelers find accommodations to fit any preference or budget. When individual companies sign up with the Business Concierge program, each business receives a $150 credit to use on its second booking and an additional $25 toward subsequent bookings, to be redeemed by any member of the organization.

"Business travelers are no longer limited to cold, staid hotel rooms, because Roomorama makes it simple and secure to book a cozy studio or a trendy loft, allowing business travelers to live like locals, even when they’re working,” says company officials.

If a business traveler wants to feel like a part of the community, if only for a limited time, Roomorama’s "Perks Program" offers guests deals and promotions in major cities around the world, allowing members to receive services such as day passes to gyms and free car-rental memberships, which allow users to explore their new surroundings.

To find a place to stay, business travelers either call a dedicated phone line at 877-442-2911 or e-mail concierge@roomorama.com to outline their travel criteria. The Business Concierge then searches for properties and inquires with hosts on the customer’s behalf. Available properties are presented to the potential guest and then bookings are made directly on the Web site.

Roomorama’s "Certified Hosts" is designed to put business travelers at ease about their living arrangements. A Certified Host is a host that has received a minimum of three positive reviews or one who manages properties professionally, which increases the chances that a traveler will be satisfied with  accommodations.

Guests can rent out a room, apartment or house without worry with one of Roomorama’s community-vetted renters. The company’s secure payment system protects users’ information, and the customer-service team is available 24 hours a day.
