At Sonder we're reimagining travel, hospitality, and how cities are experienced by building the world's first deconstructed hotel. We started a little over 4 years ago and are now active in 20 markets across North America and Europe.

What's a Deconstructed Hotel?

It’s an answer to a lot of questions we’ve been asking. Like what would happen if we took the hotel on a little field trip? What if we unbundled it and brought its rooms to the kinds of neighborhoods we ourselves would want to live in? What if we stretched and reconfigured those rooms to include a dining area and a living space, and perhaps an extra bedroom or two for the kids? What if the design was modern and exciting, and the only thing cookie-cutter was…nothing. A place like that would help create a travel experience built to take guests further. To bring them home better. And that’s a place we’d like to stay. And a philosophy we’ve built our company around.
