Building the future of hospitality

At Sonder, we’re on a mission to redefine hospitality by bringing exceptional stays everywhere.

Why we’re here

Hotels aren’t always hip. Hosts aren’t always reliable. So we’re changing the game—with spaces that inspire and delight, that fulfill needs without sacrificing style, all while delivering seamless, personalized experiences. Check in, request fresh towels, and get dinner recommendations—all from your phone. By eliminating inefficiencies as we grow, we can deliver hospitality that’s both remarkable and accessible. Because everyone should be able to afford an extraordinary place to stay.

How we got started

The summer of 2013, our founder Francis Davidson—then a university student in Montreal—managed a handful of apartments. When subletting his own, he greeted guests with wine, parked their cars, and began to envision a new set of ideals around hospitality. The following year, he and cofounder Lucas Pellan created a startup matching travelers with vacant student apartments across cities. That startup became Sonder.
