The feeling of home drives what we do every day.

About Us

The Travelers Haven Story

We empower people to feel at home anywhere their lives take them. In 2008, we saw a need to better the way businesses and organizations run their housing programs, so we created a company around our customers. Now with offices in Denver and New York City, we combine industry-leading software and talented minds to connect thousands of traveling professionals to find housing that meets all their individual needs.

We’re here to serve our customers.

Where you live, no matter for how long, is personal. Through constantly evolving technology and the combined passion of our team, we offer curated housing solutions that enhances your housing program and provides a better experience to your workforce.

Our Core Values

A Healthy Obsession

We believe the customer comes first and all else follows – and we embody this mantra daily. At every product decision, company initiative, and new hire we ask: is this the best move for our customers? If the answer is no, we move on. It’s that simple.


Mom Approved

At the end of the day, we’re in the business of people—placing them in housing and hotels to move them forward—and all people should be treated with integrity. If we’re not proud to tell our mom what we did, we don’t do it.


Best in Show

To us, good enough is never good enough. We want to provide the best products, solutions, and experiences to traveling professionals. Progress is the only way forward.


Respect thy...Everybody

Whether it’s our customers, partners, or our own team, we listen to every voice and treat everyone with respect—always!


We own our own future

We hold ourselves—not external parties, the economy, or anything else—accountable for our future. We believe life is what you make it, and we intend to make it great with passion, grit, and stewardship.

Assisting In a Time of Need

We know accidents happen. That’s why we offer support at the drop of a hat.

When hundreds of Porter Ranch residents were evacuated during the Southern California Gas Co. leak in 2015, we knew we had to help. Travelers Haven assisted nearly 550 families with securing temporary housing until the leaking well was repaired and the gas odors subsided in the Los Angeles area.

With a vast network of trusted suppliers and satellite offices in local markets, Travelers Haven is ready to ensure no one is without a home in a time of crisis. Our powerful software and 24/7, in-house support team is here for you.
