Sonesta International Hotels Corporation added 102 properties to its global portfolio, reflagging 103 InterContinental Hotels Group hotels to Sonesta branding and management. As of Dec. 1, 99 hotels were reflagged; three more in Canada and Puerto Rico change over this month. The 99 properties now operate under Royal Sonesta, Sonesta and Sonesta ES Suites brands.

Additionally, Sonesta debuted Sonesta Simply Suites, an extended-stay hotel concept with 61 locations to start. This will mark one of the largest U.S. hotel brand launches in history. As a more-focused extended-stay option, Sonesta Simply Suites build on the offerings of its existing brands.

With the expansion, Sonesta will have a new presence in the following North American cities: Dallas; Denver; Las Vegas; Los Angeles; Milwaukee; Portland, Oregon; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Seattle; Toronto, Canada; and Washington, D.C. It also expands its presence in a number of U.S. cities and states: In Atlanta, seven new hotels bring the Sonesta total to 12, with the same in Chicago. In Detroit, Sonesta added four new hotels for a total of six. The state of Florida saw six new Sonesta properties, bringing the grand total to nine statewide. Four Sonesta Simply Suites launched in Houston, for a total of seven Sonesta hotels in the city and 19 overall in Texas.

Sonesta’s portfolio is growing by nearly 350 percent, with almost 300 hotels across seven brands in the United States, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Egypt, Peru and St. Maarten.

Cheval Blanc Paris Review

Since Cheval Blanc, an extraordinary, newly designed and refurbished 72-room hotel owned by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessey, launched in September 2021, it has been the talk of the town. Le Tout-Paris remarks about its WOW factor … and the hard-to-get reservations for the 30 seats at Plenitude, the intimate, first-floor gastronomic outlet headed by chef Arnaud Donckele, who earned three Michelin stars at Cheval Blanc Saint Tropez. Reservations are also recommended for Limbar, the ground-floor bakery/café/tea shop/bar where we watched Pastry Chef Maxime Frédéric preparing desserts and an absolute must-have for dinner at Le Tout-Paris, the 7th-floor, all-day brasserie. This brightly colored space, with its raised seating and Fauve-like floor tiles and the adjacent Milanese restaurant, Langosteria, both have access to terraces facing the Seine River, with amazing views encompassing Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower.
