“Sonesta is a well established hotel brand whose renewed focus on brand development and growth places it in a great position to provide hotel owners and developers seeking upscale brand management or franchise representation with tremendous opportunities.” Joe McInerney, President and CEO of the American Hotel and Lodging Association
“We have been Sonesta’s partner in Peru since 2005, and have enjoyed a very beneficial relationship with Sonesta as our franchisor. In fact, we have doubled the Sonesta portfolio in Latin America, opening additional hotels under the Sonesta flag in both Chile and Colombia this year,” said Andres Sanchez, director of development for GHL Hoteles.
"We are proud to be the first US Sonesta franchised hotel and look forward to expanding our relationship as Sonesta continues to grow the brand,” said Larry Kestin, Managing Principal of Glenmont Capital Management, LLC. “Glenmont has always pursued opportunities to acquire quality yet distressed and underperforming assets, and through its hands-on entrepreneurial ownership, reposition those assets to a higher level of profitability. We believe Sonesta represents the perfect partner in light of its shared vision for the hotel and its similar entrepreneurial and flexible approach to its business.”
"Sonesta has a cache to it. We are going to work closely with the brand to be part of forming what Sonesta will be over the next five years. We want to be part of the building of this brand, acquire additional hotels that can become part of the brand, and celebrate the growth of this brand," commented Jay Litt, partner at Resolution Services, LLC. on the completion of the recent Sonesta Hotel Orlando Downtown deal.
