I just moved into one of Southwest Suites Corporate Apartments and I must say that I am truly amazed at the attention to detail. The apartment was clean, comfortable and decorated so tastefully, not the typical cold corporate apartment. The customer service I have found to be very prompt, pleasant and extremely helpful in terms of getting all of the needed information and assistance upon move in. I travel for a living and usually stay in corporate apartments and it is usually a hectic and frustrating experience moving into a new apartment, however that has not been my experience with Southwest Suites. My experience with Southwest Suites has been by far the most pleasant and relaxing yet. When I asked for something additional, the courier had it at my door right away. I have only experienced customer service like this in a five star hotel. I would recommend Southwest Suites over any other company that I have ever used and I have already happily recommended to many of my associates. Thank you for going the extra mile Southwest Suites.

I have stayed with Southwest Suites four times over the years and have always had an exceptional experience. I travel extensively and use corporate housing all over the US and they really stand out…

Southwest Suites has been a vendor of ours for many years and in that time we have always received Outstanding customer service. We use corporate housing all over the nation and we receive more compliments from our Southwest Suites guests than any other corporate housing company we use. Their efforts have produced high quality results time and time again. For this reason we highly recommend Southwest Suites as an “Exceptional” corporate housing company for any individual or company.

If you travel as I do for extended periods of time, and will be working or staying in Albuquerque, Southwest Suites is your absolute best bet for short term housing.

I work in the film business and for many years traveled and rented both inside and outside the US. My stays average between 5 to 8 months so where and especially who I rent from is a high priority. I’ve found both Southwest Suites and Joyce Smith to be a first rate business.

Easy to work with, responsive, with well furnished rentals, and a very flexible rental/lease policy. Believe me, those 4 things are very, very hard to find when looking for temporary housing.

As a result of years of travel I’ve developed a certain expectation as far as how well a rental unit is outfitted. The place I rented not only met my expectations but honestly exceeded them. So if you travel as I do, and find yourself in ABQ, do not hesitate to contact Joyce at Southwest Suites.
