Suiteness: Super-Sized Travel Accommodation
New US-based accommodation booking site Suiteness offers families and large groups a variety of spacious suites that cater towards a plethora of needs.
Available in Las Vegas, New York, Los Angeles, Miami, London and soon San Francisco, the portal presents thousands of properties that boast attractive and multifunctional accommodation. This ranges from rooms that are slightly larger than a typical ‘double’ hotel room, to multi-storey luxury havens complete with media-rich entertainment zones and kitchens. Suites can be booked via the website. In some cases, they need to be booked directly through the participating hotel.
The site also lists ‘secret’ penthouses and presidential suites, which are not often listed on booking sites or the hotel’s own site.
Each booking generates a donation to charity on behalf of Suiteness. This form of ‘frictionless giving’ has become an important part of the hospitality experience as consumers – particularly value-led millennials and Gen Z – prioritise doing well by doing good.
