I was told that they would inform me if there was a decision made and I’ve known previously that the offering process at this company can take up to a month. Should I reach out again for status update or wait to hear back from hiring manager?

I’m looking for a place to stay for the next month between my lease expiring and leaving the city. I’d like to be downtown to make the most of my final month here, as well as be close to friends. I’m wondering whether to go the Airbnb route, or pay for the convenience of a hotel. For reference, It’s roughly 3k to stay at a residence inn for a month, whereas the cheapest studio on airbnb is about 2800. Appreciate any advice!
