We’re excited to share that Sonder has recently expanded to Orlando — one of the top travel destinations in the US with world famous attractions. Featuring 23 units, Sonder Wellborn is located in the historic Lake Cherokee neighborhood, steps from Downtown Orlando. The property includes two distinct buildings: the Wellborn Suites, an art-deco boutique hotel, and the Norment Parry House, the oldest standing home in Orlando. Within walking distance to attractions like the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, and the Amway Center – home to the Orlando Magic – it’s a great option for both out-of-town vacationers as well as for local staycations.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Sonder to the historic Lake Cherokee neighborhood as a partner in our ongoing services at The Wellborn,” said Keith Mawardi, co-founder of Team Market Group. “Pairing our intimate House Bar and courtyard garden spaces with Sonder’s tech-enabled services and inspiring designs for every stay, travelers will now be able to enjoy a premiere holistic hospitality experience right in the heart of Downtown Orlando.”
Each Sonder property is uniquely equipped to provide a low-touch, tech-enabled experience, with self-contained spaces and 24/7 digital concierge services. The health and well-being of our guests are our top priority, so we’ve taken a number of steps to elevate our existing processes and safeguard our community, including launching enhanced cleaning protocols.
Additionally, Sonder spaces are designed and customized to reflect the local art and architecture. For Sonder Wellborn, this means balancing modern design with decor that pays homage to the historical nature of the Norment Parry House and the vibrant art deco architecture of the Wellborn Suites. There are also dedicated common areas for Sonder guests, including an event space and a house bar that offers a unique menu of crafted cocktails and chef inspired bites.
Leading Sonder’s growth in Orlando is a local team that has decades of cumulative experience in hospitality, including renowned brands such as Disney, Marriott, SeaWorld and Universal. By the end of 2020, we expect to operate over 100+ spaces within the city, with several buildings in the pipeline. Sonder properties will offer a wide range of accommodation options from boutique hotel rooms to multi-bedroom apartment suites. Sonder will continue to expand its presence in Downtown Orlando and plans to expand to the theme parks to the south of the city.
Globally, Sonder offers stays for travelers and residents around the world, with thousands of spaces in 35+ cities. Sonder works with local municipalities to operate within local regulations and partner with developers to offer high-quality units that provide an authentic stay experience, all supported by Sonder’s 24/7 digital concierge service and local staff.
Our uniquely low touch experience paired with our elevated cleaning protocols makes Sonder a great option for those who want to minimize contact and practice social distancing. We look forward to hosting you.
