Worldwide: Tech-enabled hospitality company Sonder has launched its first hotel collection, Powered by Sonder, with an initial 23 hotels.
Powered by Sonder hotels are located in key travel destinations, with the debut collection featuring properties in 13 markets. Hotels so far include the Atala in Paris, Chambers in New York City, and Yelo Jean Médecin in Nice.
Each hotel is operated by Sonder and supported by the group’s technology, including its app-enabled guest journey. Hotels can be booked via the Sonder app, on its website, or via OTA partners.
Francis Davidson, co-founder and CEO at Sonder, said: “Hotels make up a significant and growing part of our portfolio. The Powered by Sonder collection offers authentic, local stays in the heart of vibrant neighbourhoods – at global scale and with the consistency and quality that our guests expect. Each hotel has a strong design perspective, which is distinct from Sonder’s core design aesthetic, while featuring our seamless, app-driven service. Many have unique features for our guests to discover, including on-site food and beverage outlets.”
Martin Picard, co-founder and chief real estate officer at Sonder, added: “Hotels in the Powered by Sonder collection benefit from our proprietary technology and operational expertise, and existing boutique hotels can be efficiently integrated into our portfolio. We’re continuing to expand and diversify our portfolio, with hotels and resorts in both our Powered by Sonder and wider collection, in addition to multi-unit apartment properties.”
Sonder operates in over 40 markets across 10 countries and has approximately 18,200 live and contracted units worldwide as of Q1 2023.
