Paragon is a passionate supporter of the arts in each of our communities, so when the Mid-Columbia Symphony needed a place for their conductor to stay during their season finale concert, we were happy to help. Conductor Nicholas Wallin stayed with us for ten days, and here’s what he had to say. Next time your business takes you away from home, call Paragon for the best temporary accomodations!
On my trip to the Tri-Cities last month, I was lucky to have the chance to stay in a Paragon apartment – what a treat! I was in town for 10 nights, conducting several rehearsals, and preparing for our season-ending concert with the Mid-Columbia Symphony. My 1-bedroom apartment was perfect for my needs. The bed was luxurious, with nice pillows and sheets. The kitchen was well-appointed, and had everything I needed to do some simple cooking. I even had a washer and dryer! It was great to have some extra space. I could spread out my work in the living room, eat in the dining area, and still have a comfy bedroom. There was a garage for my loaner car, plus a nice balcony. The TV and cable set-up was great, and the wireless connection was fast and easy-to-use.
Sometimes checking in and out of a short-term apartment can be burdensome, but the Paragon staff made it easy. The lock box made checking in and out a breeze. The communication ahead of my stay, and then during it, was appropriate and helpful. One of the biggest reasons I prefer corporate housing to a hotel, is that you have both the comforts and privacy of being at home.
Laundry, cooking, extra space, plus proximity to groceries, restaurants, a nice jogging trail – all these things make the rest of life a lot simpler. I was able to focus on my work and perform at a high-level, because Paragon took care of all of my housing concerns. I would certainly recommend Paragon to any business traveller to the Tri-Cities who is looking for a place to stay!
