If you’re clerking downtown this summer, Lodgeur is your easiest option. You can book a sleep-ready apartment as easily as you would book a hotel room, ensuring you won’t be spending the night before your clerkship piecing together a bed from IKEA or trying to get the WiFi set up properly. Just bring your clothes and order your groceries because you’re ready to go.
Paying for a room in an extended-stay hotel isn’t attractive for a medium-term stay. Extended-stay hotels can usually tick the boxes for a gym, pool and kitchenette, but the drab decor and tight quarters are nothing to write home about.
Corporate housing companies usually operate in the analog era and typically require you submit an online inquiry form with your name, contact information and budget before they call you on the phone to discuss your plans and offer you a quote. You will usually need to pay upfront for your entire stay.
Most of the popular Airbnb listings will already have bookings far in advance, so it can be tricky to find one with availability for your entire clerkship. Again with the upfront payments.
You can search for your specific (fully furnished) apartment on our website, book online, check in from your phone, and text us if you need anything. Lodgeur holds apartments for extended stays, so there won’t be a weekend booking in the middle of your clerkship.
Lodgeur understands that your firm will pay you in the summer for your clerkship. For stays of 30+ nights, you won’t have to pay the full amount at booking. Place a deposit now and pay for your first month 14 days before checkin. (You will see the details on the booking page.)
With a busy schedule, you won’t have to worry about cleaning your apartment. Lodgeur’s cleaners are scheduled to visit every 2 weeks. Lodgeur does not charge fees for cleanings on stays of 30+ nights.
Lodgeur operates in Class-A apartment communities with higher quality amenities than most hotels. The gyms, pools, outdoor kitchens, and yoga studios will help you make the most of your free time.
We have hosted more than 7,000 guests, whether they’re looking to stay for just a few nights, weeks or months. Lodgeur hosts professional athletes in town for the sports season, actors in town for the theater season, consultants on open-ended projects, young doctors on their medical residencies as well as law clerks and interns of all stripes. Law students from top tier law schools return to Lodgeur for their 2L summer and then again as first-year attorneys.
Lodgeur attracts young professionals looking for stylish and comfortable on-demand housing. From edgy murals in our Digital Nomad suites to our heavenly memory foam mattresses, every item is curated to make your stay as comfortable as possible. (We receive so many guest inquiries about Lodgeur’s mattresses that we have a standard email response to let guests know where to buy them!)
Not to mention, the convenience of on-demand housing benefits both you and the planet. You won’t have to worry about dealing with packing supplies, brand new furniture and other household items, which means you’ll also significantly help cut down on waste and emissions.
Lodgeur’s Midtown apartments at Mid Main Lofts attract law clerks and academics every year due to its premium location near downtown and Midtown offices, Rice University, the University of Houston and South Texas College of Law.
Mid Main Lofts offers free parking in the attached garage and has its own stop on the METRORail line to Downtown. So if you don’t have a car or want to avoid parking downtown, you can take the METRORail from the Ensemble/HCC stop to Main Street Square or Preston stops.
Lodgeur tip: The METRORail is free in the summer for students. Bring your university ID and save hundreds of dollars each month on parking or commuting costs. Check out our post on using the Red Line of the Houston light rail system to explore the best of Houston without a car.
Mid Main Lofts also has four restaurants on the ground floor of the building, with another six across the street and dozens more trendy restaurants and bars all within walking distance. The nearest grocery store is 0.6 miles away and you can walk to the salon, shops and dentist. The neighborhood is filled with a lively mix of theaters, specialty museums, parks, beer gardens and live music venues. So next time you’re out late or just need a nice pick-me-up after a long day, you’ll have food and drink options galore right on your doorstep.
Between exam prep, keeping an eye on class rank and landing clerkships, law students don’t have much time for setting up a home for the summer. Lodgeur provides on-demand housing, ready to go.
No boxes, movers or furniture assembly required.
Lodgeur has a few different apartment types to choose from for your clerkship housing. Take a 3D virtual tour of Lodgeur’s furnished apartments in Midtown and see floorpans for the unit types. You will also find tours of the expansive gym, pool and other amenities.
