Like most corporate housing, The Envoy Club occupies the gray area between a hotel and an apartment building: It has characteristics of both but is an adequate substitute for neither. Each unit–whether studio, one bedroom or two bedroom–is a furnished apartment with a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, television, VCR, fax machine, stereo and ample closet space. Each unit is styled in the same typical décor: forgettable framed prints on the walls and a color palette that may have been chosen for neutrality’s sake. High daily rates make this an unwise choice for brief stays. If, however, the goal is temporary housing that’s comfortable and convenient, the Envoy Club is a decent option. Just get ready to turn up the bland.Pros
The venues offers many of the same services and amenities as a luxury rental building along with the flexibility of a hotel.
The drab, institutionalized styling is tiresome and rates are high for both short-term and long-term stays.
