LOS ANGELES, Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- What's not to like about Long Island? It was once the cradle of aviation, it's where the Hamptons are located, and it lays claim to famous residents including Teddy Roosevelt and the Vanderbilts. With the opening of its newest corporate housing office, Long Island is now also home to Oakwood Worldwide. Opened in January, the Long Island office joins other new corporate housing office locations, including in Nashville and Honolulu. Oakwood's services also extend globally, with locations throughout the U.S., U.K. and in all the major business gateways in Asia, including Tokyo, Seoul, Guangzhou, Beijing, Bangkok and Manila, as well as scheduled openings this year in India. Oakwood's Long Island office opens in response to the growing demand for extended-stay accommodations. Many Manhattan companies are finding Long Island to be an attractive location to relocate or expand their operations. Long Island's lower overhead costs and close proximity to Manhattan makes it an ideal place to conduct business. As Long Island previously had only limited corporate housing facilities, Oakwood saw this growing need and demand for temporary housing and soon established a solid network of spacious, quality furnished apartments in the area. The Long Island office services the cities of Westbury, Melville, Glen Cove, Smithtown, Coram, Islandia, Holtsville and Hauppauge, and as far as Port Jefferson. Likewise, Oakwood's newest office also opened to serve as a one-stop-shop for businesses and individuals requesting extended-stay accommodations on the largest island in the continental U.S. "We could not be more pleased with our new Long Island location," says Gavan James, senior vice president and general manager, Oakwood Corporate Housing. "Oakwood is committed to providing the best corporate housing for our growing customer base outside of Manhattan, and I am confident that our team in Long Island will provide our customers with the same high-quality accommodations that they have come to expect from Oakwood for more than 45 years." Along with world-class, personalized service, every guest will enjoy Oakwood's Signature Apartment, complete with museum quality photography from Oakwood's founder, Howard Ruby, and the Oakwood Dream Bed. Offering a sumptuous night's sleep, this pampering bed includes four luxurious pillows, down blanket, lush duvet, and high thread-count, first- quality sheets. Apartments are also fully equipped with gourmet kitchens, 27" televisions with DVD players and much more. Located at 85 West Main Street in Smithtown, New York, the Long Island office's day-to-day operations and housing requests will be managed by Account Executive Lauren Schulman and Account Coordinator Jaime O'Connor. Rates for a one bedroom apartment begin at $128 per day and two bedrooms at $150 per day. You can contact the Oakwood Long Island office 203-967-2414 for information and to book your next stay.
