Airbnb hosts also can arrange grocery delivery prior arrival of the business traveler and save time. See some feedback from Airbnb Business Travelers:
“With Airbnb Business apartments we can be self-reliant, we can make dinner for ourselves rather than eating out every night. You feel like part of the community rather than a visitor.”
