I sat down with Alexander Shapcott in Montreal, to find out what being a concierge with CorporateStays.com was really like.
Monika Schmidt – So what exactly does a CorporateStays.com concierge do?
Alexander Shapcott – Well our mission at CorporateStays.com is pretty simple, we’re here to make our guests feel completely comfortable. We want them to feel as comfortable when they are staying away from home as they would if they were at home, so our job is basically to make sure that happens.
MS – How are the CorporateStays.com services different from other corporate housing companies?
AS – I would say one of the biggest advantages we have over other services, or even over hotels in Montreal, is our locations. We have such a wide variety of awesome locations, from Downtown to the Old Port to the Plateau and beyond, that we can really accommodate our guests anywhere they need to be in the city.
In addition to location I think that we really stand out when it comes to customer service. We offer the full package and we take care of our guests all the way through their stay, clients really appreciate that. We’re really trying to make our guests feel as if they’ve never left home.
MS – How do you make sure that your clients feel at home during their stay?
AS – How we do that is we offer customer service throughout the stay from beginning to end. There’s always someone to meet you when you arrive at the apartment to walk you through all the details and then there’s a customer representative who will check in throughout your stay so that you can be sure that all your needs are taken care of.
By staying in touch and getting to know our guests we have a chance to personalize our service. As I get to know our clients I’m able to make specific recommendations for what to do and see while they’re here.
MS – What other types of services do you provide?
AS – As a concierge service we do everything from suggesting some of the local sights that the guidebooks don’t list, to catering to the specific needs of our guests. For instance, sometimes a client will need a workspace and a printer, many of our apartments are already completely set up for business stays but if they are not we will provide the required elements.
Some clients will want to bring their own furniture or personal items to really make their space their own and we can accommodate that as well. It’s really about making our guests feel at home and completely comfortable in Montreal so that they can get to work, or to vacation, or whatever, without any hassle or inconvenience.
Choose CorporateStays.com for your next stay in Montreal, or in any of our other fantastic locations, and take advantage of our amazing customer service and concierge just a phone call away!
