I am a media professional who owns a small video production company. I travel extensively to deal with clients and I often carry expensive video cameras and support equipment. I prefer to stay in locations that are safe, offer free or lost cost parking, have kitchen facilities and other amenities similar to a 4-star hotel. I would rather spend money with other entreprenuers like the people who offer their places here on Airbnb. This is a great way to stay in comfortable surroundings with professional courteeuos people.
