Sonesta Introduces Simply Suites (For Candlewood Suites Conversions)

This week, Sonesta launched a new brand called Sonesta Simply Suites, under which Candlewood Suite exiting the IHG system was branded.

The Service Properties Trust’s (SVC) portfolio of IHG hotels have mostly exited now and reflagged under Sonesta’s brands.

You can access Sonesta here.

More than 60 Candlewood Suites hotels around the US were reflagged under this new Sonesta Simply Suites brand.

Select service segment has weathered the current pandemic much better than full service and luxury hotels.

I have not stayed at any of these suites brands recently – they tend to all look alike (rather depressing).
