Sean Worker, BridgeStreet Global Hospitality CEO, said: "The 'New Tribe of Business Traveller' don't want to just visit their next destination, they want to live there, even if only for a weekend. Our global travellers trust the BridgeStreet brand to deliver a high quality experience, with onefinestay we can offer our guests vetted, beautiful homes, along with the convenience of online booking and high hospitality standards that we can guarantee."
