Newton, MA (June 7, 2021) – Sonesta International Hotels Corporation (Sonesta) today announced the addition of five hotels to the Sonesta Select hotel brand and its global hotel portfolio. All the hotels are owned by Service Properties Trust (Nasdaq: SVC) and were transferred to Sonesta as of June 2, 2021.

These five hotels continue Sonesta’s recent expansion, with Sonesta increasing by approximately 350% the number of its U.S. managed hotels since August 2020 and making Sonesta one of the fastest growing hospitality companies in the country.

  • Sonesta Select Tucson Airport – featuring mountain views and desert breezes, the hotel is a short drive to downtown Tucson, ideally situated near key corporate business centers and the Tucson International Airport.
  • Sonesta Select Atlanta Duluth – appealing to both business and leisure travelers, the hotel is located centrally and near several entertainment venues and sports arenas, as well as numerous restaurants and retail establishments that add to the charm the historic Duluth area.
