    Sonder is a next-generation hospitality company with thousands of beautiful spaces in cities around the world. We aim to redefine the hospitality industry through unique design and modern service. Whether you stay in one of our apartments or hotels for two days, two months or two years, Sonder ensures a unique, yet consistent experience.

    At its core, Sonder’s mission is to celebrate the infinite diversity and beauty of the world. We’re committed to helping guests, employees and partners discover that which makes each culture and destination special, unique and always worth exploring.

    Technology empowers us to run more efficiently than any hotel and more consistently than any home-sharing platform. We build and utilize our own internally built technology. On the back end, these applications are built to optimize our operations, managing everything from supply chain and inventory management, to housekeeping and dispatching our hospitality agents. Externally, our guests enjoy home automated units, with the ability to use our consumer app to customize their stay prior to arrival, think requesting early check-in/late check out, directly connecting to WiFi, seamlessly checking in with smart locks, requesting service from concierge.

    By operating our own supply and being a vertically integrated hospitality company, we have incredible control over the guest experience. We aim to enable our guests to have the most fulfilling travel experience possible. From deciding which neighborhood to stay in, to choosing the right unit, to getting the most from their stay and neighborhood. We believe we can create such a compelling travel experience with Sonder that no trip is complete when staying elsewhere.
