Overall Satisfaction with Airbnb for Work

Airbnb for Work is used across our entire organization. We have employees in 15+ countries and book Airbnbs worldwide. It has helped us find cheaper lodging in traditionally expensive cities like Boston, London, NYC, and San Francisco. We've also found that some of our departments/teams prefer Airbnbs instead of hotels.
  • Easy to use.
  • Nice interface.
  • Economical.
  • Too many listings.
  • A lot of filters (could be good to have preset saved filters that the traveler always wants).
  • Wishlists include listings that may be already booked, so I don't want to see those.
  • Our ADR for Airbnb is around $100/night, which is really cheap.
  • It's helped build a team culture with groups who have used it to book large houses with multiple bedrooms.
  • It can give a "homey" feeling on the road.
We have only used Airbnb for Work. We book hotels through TripActions and that has also been a positive experience, but there are cases where our travelers prefer to book Airbnb and we encouraged them to do so. We've also had many employees choose to book Airbnb when on personal travel because of the positive experiences they've had during business travel.
Airbnb for Work is well suited in traditionally expensive cities. We've used Airbnb a lot in Boston and London, where our company has offices. Most commonly it's used for 3+ night stays. We also have groups that have used it when traveling together to a conference or a video/media shoot. We don't use Airbnb as often for 1-2 night stays.
