Why Corporate Housing Is Not Just For The Traditional Business Traveler

While corporate housing is typically geared toward accommodating traveling business executives, this same service is also available and beneficial to those who are not traditional business travelers. In fact, fully furnished corporate housing can be a perfect fit for those traveling for special events that require extended stays.

One such example of this type of special event is The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in Texas. This nearly three week long celebration of rodeo culture features one of the world’s largest livestock shows. The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo has an abundance of activities that last from morning until night with everything from carnival fun to educational opportunities to barrel racing to musical performances by some of today’s hottest artists of various genres.

To put on an event of this scope requires all hands on deck from well before the rodeo begins until several days after it ends. Performers, VIP guests, athletes, and vendors are all crucial parts of this celebration of all things western and can require overnight stays of several days up to three weeks or more. Murphy’s Corporate Lodging has been a part of the Houston community for over 46 years and knows what it takes to ensure Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo personnel and fans can kick off their boots and feel right at home in H-town.

Why Choose Corporate Housing for Special Events That Require Extended Stays

Any time you are away from home and on the road for several days or more, it is crucial to find lodging that accommodates your specific needs for the trip. When it comes to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, whether you are working the barrel racing events in the stadium or showing livestock in the arena, you are working hard and need a place you can relax when the day is done.

Murphy’s Corporate Lodging matches guests with upscale corporate apartments that provide:

  • a prime location near the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo grounds
  • more privacy than a hotel
  • plenty of room to spread out and even host colleagues and friends for a get together
  • fabulous corporate housing amenities

Corporate Housing Amenities

Corporate lodging comes with specialized amenities that make it a go to for the modern-day traveler. Each amenity is included with the consummate traveler in mind and is designed to provide them with a worry-free travel experience.

Free Parking

In a city as populous as Houston, free parking is essential. In addition to offering free parking, Murphy’s Corporate Lodging has a number of corporate apartments available in the Texas Medical Center area not far from the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo that are also near public transportation access points. This feature can save guests money on parking at the rodeo and the headache of fighting daily event traffic.

Full Kitchen

As mouthwatering as those turkey legs, barbeque, and funnel cakes are at the rodeo, eating it for two or three meals a day can be less than ideal. Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo personnel and fans staying at a Murphy’s Corporate Lodging property will have access to their own kitchen outfitted with full appliances, pots and pans, tableware, and glassware. This lets guests cook and eat the way they like in the comfort of their own kitchen.

Fully Furnished Corporate Apartments

Guests that are away from home for more than a few days often find a fully furnished corporate apartment a refreshing change from the typical hotel. Each apartment is furnished with stylish and comfortable furniture and tasteful décor to make the space feel warm and welcoming.

Washer and Dryer

Rodeoing is fun, but it can be hard on the clothing—especially for athletes. Our corporate apartments are outfitted with a washer and dryer so guests can do their laundry in the comfort of their own living space whenever time allows.

Multi-Room Temporary Living Space

Instead of being stuck in one room for the duration of their stay, guests staying at a Murphy’s Corporate Lodging apartment can spread out between a bedroom (or two or three), bathroom, living room, and kitchen and eating areas.


Although housekeeping is a standard service, it is usually even more appreciated when staying in a multi room living space. Each of our corporate apartments come with housekeeping service.

Tasteful Décor

Each apartment is elegantly decorated to provide an uncluttered environment for guests. This lends itself to guests finding relaxation in their living space while still enjoying an air of luxury.

Access to Pool and Fitness Facility

Whether it is on a day off or a much-needed afternoon break, guests are encouraged to take advantage of access to the property pool and fitness facility.

Around the Clock Customer Service

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is a full day event and many of the personnel put in long hours to make it happen, which is why Murphy’s Corporate Lodging is happy to provide 24/7 customer service to guests.

Let Murphy’s Corporate Lodging make your next trip to the Bayou City during the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo one to remember.
